      That's a far cry from your "it's settled" statement. The "we can" means The Fun Pimps will continue to support consoles IF they can. By no means is "7 Days to Die" dead; it most certainly will go Gold status on Steam for the PC. Just don't expect TFP to put a halt to their PC development to focus solely on the console ports. As I stated earlier, to do so would be unwise financially and for their timetable goals.

        TWD series will b finished. If you follow the show at all on AMC, Kirkmans studio is picking it up from TTG. He already saidit because he couldnt stand losing Clems journey and Rick Grimes in the same year. It was posted either FBor Twit or maybe both but i cant find the link sorry. Cant even remember his studios name atm. Sky-something

          The Walking Dead was Telltales development project. They were able to get another studio to finish it. 7 Days on console is not the same. The best outcome.that we can hope for is that TTG finds another publisher. That is the sunshine and rainbow result.

          What is more likely, is that they will try to sell the console rights back to the Fun Pimps. If a price.can be agreed upon, then it will be on the Fun Pimps to find a new publisher. I cannot see TFP attempting to publish it themselves at this point. They don't have the funds to back the project. They may try and finish it themselves, but that won't happen until they consider the PC version as done.

We want to keep it going A16, A17 and beyond. We are only being cautious about releasing statements until things are 100% settled.

                Secret... aaaaagent Clare!

                Comment


                  Clare is amazing. I've been playing for about a year and a half. A while back I had issues where Clare have gave me good insight on the game and things I could try to work around certain issues with md5 when that was happening on Xbox. I hope she has the best of luck and any company would be happy to have her.

                      I understand that things take time but is Xbox getting an update if so is there a rough time frame as people who bought it for console believed they were getting the same game as the PC instead got a game with one fourth of the content, And game bugs that wipe hours worth of game play making it pointless. Previous comments calm the nerves but their seems to be a lacking in communication when it comes to details.

                        The console version will always be behind the PC version; that's always been the case and is only to be expected since they develop it over there and port to console once they are happy with it (and if the console can handle it). As for the update, that depends on how long it takes to sort out the rights following Telltale' closure - there has been no time scale offered as yet, but one week ago, the following was posted by The Fun Pimps - you can see the post here: (it's about half way down the page) https://7daystodie.com/forums/showth...Layoffs/page10

                        I'm sure they'll tell us what's happening once there is news.

                          While the p.c community over here to give us information as if they were devs workin for the fun pimps. They stat all this b.s about publishing rights , that we got a complete game that we are lucky to get anything extra (which btw is incorrect), who works on the porting the game to console, ect. ect. and they state it as if it were fact. Meanwhile the real devs set back and make jokes, i never seen a company that divides there player base like the fun pimps. The P.C community is constantly given information on whats goin on , i see them on the forums daily communicating with its player base. Meanwhile the console players are left in the dark, hell clare gave us 2 meaningful statements all year ! Wow , they could tell us something i think thats pretty obvious, but something that is Blantyre obvious. They dont give a damn about the console community , we paid for the game same as p.c , so you guys should treat your customers/fanbase of all platforms equally!

                            sorry to be critical, but expecting your audience to come to forums to get news in threads and threads of information just doesn't do it anymore.

                            you guys have a game with a cult following, it's your responsibility now.
                            Perfect example , most everyone see's this as an issue and have for a very long time. Joel could get twice the viewers on his new ''youtube career'' , just by given us alittle info when he makes his video's. Instead he chooses to act like we dont exist and has no appreciation for what we contributed in sales ! Yet were supposed to be happy when get information of any kind around twice a year.

                              You know I'm glad someone finally had the b*lls to say it. You're right, regardless of how they're gonna attack us and put us down for saying it we still are entitled to our opinions and have good reasons for it. 😏 Whether they want to admit it or not we have been unfairly left in the dark about updates, progress, news, etc. I honestly lost hope for this game a year ago after I bought it and noticed how little attention we got. 😞

                              When I first tried to complain their excuse for the lack of content and development was because "they only added things that were finished to the port." At that same moment when I read that reply on my phone, I looked up to a glitched zombie dog on my screen just spinning in circles like if it was chasing its own tail or something.

                              In my opinion with such little things added on every update I feel like they had one, maybe two devs working on the port. Now keep in mind they're PORTING content over, not developing it from scratch. Those of you who have knowledge on game development understand the difference. 🙃

                              I don't like sounding like a total a** and I know people here will hate me for it but I truly believe that the way things are going right now, TFP will want to finish developement on PC. MAYBE decently finishing the ports then move on to another project while distancing from what happened with TT. If we still get the ports updated then we're still looking at years in the future, not anytime soon. Of course this will depend on how hard this hits when the rights get sorted out. For those who will come to attack me on this I'll simply point out that the last time I truly sat down to read what had been happening was back in June of 2017. The last time anything new was added into the game. We're in October of 2018. 😟

                                1. I play on the PS4 also. I do not have an xbox. Never will. This is primarily due to Microsoft's lackluster quality control, and secondarily due the fact that more/better games release on PlayStation than on Xbox.

                                2. You are lucky to get any extras added on after the initial Console release. It was sold as a finished product. Finished means complete. Anything added after is a bonus or DLC. This is a simple fact.

                                3. Divided how? You're right here on the exact same forum as the PC game with the PC Developers. Do you know why this is? Because Telltale didn't want to support it on their site. (And if they had, then you would have a point for the keeping the console crowd separated from the PC peeps.)

                                4. The information given to the PC user base by the developer is the choice of the developer. In this case it is the Fun Pimps.
                                The information given to the Console player is the same way. In this case it is Iron Galaxy, and not TFP.
                                So really, you can only blame Telltale and Iron Galaxy in this regard. (Hell, you could even argue that if the console forum was separated to their hosting, that maybe you guys would have more information.)

                                5. I agree with you completely on the console players being left in the dark. I have tried several mediums and begged to get more information for you guys. I've even attempted to get some of the source so I can do internal testing and even work towards increasing the multiplayer capabilities of the systems. I was denied.

                                6. You didn't pay for the same game. You paid for a console port of a stable Alpha release. The console hardware cannot even handle the current state of the PC game due to it's hardware limitations. I was very hopeful that the upgrade to Unity 2017 on the console port would allow you guys to catch up to the PC a hell of a lot more thanks to much better optimization. My thoughts on this were recently confirmed by one of the TFP developers.
                                So assuming they are able to sort out the licensing on the console ports, you guys should be seeing a large amount of a16 content in the next update.

                                7. The Fun Pimps have clearly stated that they have a vested interest in continuing to support all of the platforms. That means the console versions as well. As soon as they have information to give in this regard, I am certain they will tell you. They have been pretty open with information when it is available. We just need to be patient while the lawyers duke it out.
