It was all the way back in mid April when we were told ‘the next patch is almost here‘ and my prediction for when the DLC would be available for consoles has been and gone. At this point and for the past few weeks, the question has been asked; ‘has the patch even been sent to Microsoft and Sony?’. As we weren’t getting any answers in the forums or on the Atari forum, I thought I would send GMDestra (Head of the community team for Atari) a email and ask him personally.
This is what I sent:
Just to put a lot of minds at ease, would it be possible to confirm that the patches for Xbox and PS3 have definitely been sent for approval by Microsoft and Sony?
At this point, I was hoping for a quick reply saying ‘Yes… they have been sent for approval and now it is out of our hands…’ or something along those lines. Sadly, that isn’t what I received:
Sorry, I apologize that I don’t have the details. The most I can do is forward you to Atari’s primary PR contact, Erik Reynolds.
All the best,
What does this mean then? One, GMDestra actually doesn’t know or, two, he doesn’t want to break it to us that the patch hasn’t even been sent off to Microsoft and Sony. I would like to believe the former, however the latter seems more plausible as he is the head of the community team for TDU2, so surely he gets notified of everything. But saying that, we all know that communication at Atari is a problem, so maybe he genuinely doesn’t know!
I’ve sent an email to Erik and and am waiting on a reply now. I’ll make sure to keep you all up to date!
