There are a lot of rumours floating around that EDO won't make it to console, if this is the case would prefer to know sooner rather than later as has been observed it is subjective as to when EDO will be considered "stabilised" enough to allow console development to begin. I used to be able to remain relatively positive regarding EDO but recently this positivity is starting to wane as though feedback has increased there is not really anything substantial that is able to counter said rumours regarding console being scrapped. Basically just wandering if there is any truth to these rumours, as have had prior responses from [USER=188830]@sallymorganmoore[/USER] have tagged you on to this cheers in anticipation......

"A currently circulating story or report of uncertain or doubtful truth."
"- be circulated as an unverified account"

I was beginning to wonder where my weekly response to console launch plans was coming this week 🥺
I do absolutely still hear your concerns and worries over this, but the only thing I can suggest is...keep hanging on to what we've updated you with so far and trust that the absolute truths on any plans will always come from us as...well...a verified source. Even if plans change or go ahead with roaring success, the facts will sprout always from us as the confirmation and never the speculation.

Right now, as I've said through all of the previous weeks on this:

"Ultimately, we believe it is right to focus our efforts on the core Elite Dangerous Odyssey experience for the platforms that we have released on, before opening up to more. We know that the work that we do to improve players’ experiences of Elite Dangerous Odyssey on PC will benefit other platforms in the future, but the dates and details of the console platforms are going to change. We do not want to rush into confirming any dates or changes this has on our console release, as we must remain fully focused on the core Elite experience. Only when we feel that the foundation of the PC release is solid, will we be able to re-lay our console roadmap on top." David Braben, Odyssey going forwards.

We still have...well...I won't lie - much to do to get Odyssey "solid", as David says there - and therefore we're cracking on with it until we're in a position to move forward.
This above statement still remains, because we haven't had any indication anywhere, across all departments and teams, that it's under major threat. Any news further will always come from us when we have it. Sorry it's not more for you.

Thought I would put this as its own post as it may get lost and it's my birthday so hey may get special treatment lol cheers in anticipation [USER=266302]@Zac c*cken[/USER] [USER=249391]@Bruce G[/USER] [USER=255952]@Arthur Tolmie[/USER]

Apologies if this has already been mentioned or is in wrong area of the forum lets just say I'm not firing on all thrusters at the moment, I would just like to ask if there could be an official post identifying what exactly will be done with ED on consoles (I don't mean transfers) presently I'm unsure as to what the future is with regards to storylines Cg's etc. I've seen a lot of suppositions as to what may happen but nothing official, initially it wasn't very clear as to how "cut off" ED on consoles would be whether storylines would still progress whether we would still be included in cg's what exactly critical updates meant with the only clarification upcoming being related to transfers. This in my opinion is what led to a lot of people leaving. Its nice to see this weekly update but from my point of view its isolating consoles further with no further information other than the potential to transfer even being discussed or on display. For myself and possibly others it would be appreciated if more detailed information could be put forward about what the future on consoles may entail if for nothing else to avoid the perception that now the decision has been made it no longer matters. Yeah so in my rather long winded way a little more clarity.

Cheers and o7

Happy Birthday Daze, please consider this an official answer to your question.

The console version of the game (now essentially synonymous with "Horizons") will continue from this point on with the features that it currently has. As mentioned before, no new features or content will be added but critical updates will be implemented where necessary. By this, we largely mean high-impact bugs or essential maintenance.

With regards to storyline and Community Goals, those will continue to be available on console until such a time that they require the Odyssey framework to function (if one required involvement ground-based content, for example). There's no planned date for such a thing, but it is a real possibility.

Investigation into profile transfers is ongoing and we look forward to sharing what we can in due course.

I've read that .... and the question I asked is not answered there. Hence asking it both on Twitter when I asked [USER=266302]@Zac c*cken[/USER] and here and as yet still have no answer to the question.

I can put the question another way if you prefer?

I already have a PC account can the xbox account stuff be transferred to the already existing PC account or do I need to create a NEW Account/CMDR on the PC for everything to be transferred to?

The account can merge in-terms of purchased cosmetics etc but you won't be able to merge your save data. If you want to transfer your Commander data on console to an already existing account on PC, you'll have to delete the Commander save data that already exists on that account on PC.

If you'd rather keep both, you can create a new Frontier account using a different email address during the transfer process that will give you a free copy of Horizons on PC, that your console Commander data will be transferred to.
