Hello BugBear.

I backed the PS4 version far later than most here have been backers (only a few months ago) but I've been seeing many different updates continually push the console version from release. Almost all the updates I've read have been about the tweaks to the PC demo that is currently out on Steam. My PC is horrible so it's not very playable on mine. I think I saw somewhere from two months ago that the PS4 version was running but having to go through a test and check phase before being released on PS4.

I've seen early Spring 2017 release. I've seen early Summer 2017 release. We're now in mid July so both of those marks have past.

Can we please have a console update on where the game stands? What is the possible release date? If it's going to take until Christmas this year or Spring next year, just let us know. I'd rather of a realistic release window than optimistic ideals that keep getting pushed back.

Thanks for your time.

Not much for details about consoles versions has been posted. But before console versions can get release, PC version got get finish. Back in Dec Bugbear site had said a spring release for PC versions. But seem now Bugbear doing some extra stuff get Wreckfest ready for release. Now it looking more like a Dec 2017 release if Bugbear can get PC version finish with what they want to do.

Mixed layout was scrapped since we need to allocate our resources, as you know the track was in early stages and finalizing it would have required a lot of time and effort.

Thanks for reply Janne. Track was fine the way it is, don't need any more dressing, but I understand. A lot us online don't need the eye candy, just fun track to race on!!  :P

Janne, would it be OK for me to add old Tarmac 1, Tarmac 3 mixed, old Sandpit 1 and the old Gravel 1 track( if I get it working with new Build ) to my Gokart mod? Please.  :)

Sure you can add them, no problem :)

Yes I definitely understand what you mean regarding the track from the visual point of view, but given that we're looking for a broad audience on both PC and consoles just making track playable is not going to cut it, the tracks need to be detailed and visually impressive and that takes time. Even the more polished tracks that we have now will need quite a bit of additional work so you can see how we need to be very selective before committing.

It's now November with little to no info on the console versions of the game. I'm pretty sure I last saw that it was delayed into potentially early 2018 but we really have zero information to go on.

Bugbear... please take the time to communicate with your backers/community.

Thank you.

As far as I'm aware nothing has changed regarding the console release window, PC version first and consoles to follow in 2018.
