The patch that was due to release 'around 15th" has been delayed with date 'unknown'

Took me by surprise this morning when i checked forums. I was really excited about playing Defiance with a working chat. But now there is a rumor going around that patch is delayed because  they are also adding content in this patch. Could it be just a coincidence that they delayed patch due to show airing yesterday in US?

    It was no secret that there was something added to the story line after the airing of episode 1, so maybe they discovered something did not working correctly and delaying the whole patch.

    Still sad there will be nothing fixed to the social part of the game like chat.

    The patch should be here today, that's "around" 15th in my book. 

    Trion has done this before, where they say delayed and boom, patch the same day!

    They said teh patch will be out AROUND the 15th (anyway after the show aired).

    Sledgehammer70 also spoke of 15th-16th. So AFAIK it's still possible it comes out today. If you subscribe in twitter to @sledgehammer70 (he is Trion's Community Manager) you can get real time updates on this issue

    I think something major went 'kaput' otherwise they won't go straight to 'un known ' from 'around 15th"

    It's also possible and it wouldn't surprise me, as it does tend to happen quite often. Put it this way, better before than after

    id rather have a patch bug free and done properly than one that makes a game more unplayable. I don't mind waiting I am having fun in the game as it is.

    I would bet on an issue with the microsoft/sony validation of the patch.

    I think Trion has some kind of a "fast track" cert process from Microsoft and Sony. Also here's a fun little fact, look at the back of Xbox 360 Defiance box, see the Players go to 10,000+ heh, Microsoft had to come up with that new label for Defiance, as they never had a game with so many possible players in one server cluster :)

    So there were many technical "firsts" with Defiance for Xbox, I think fast track certification is one of those.

    Got a message in game that there is a patch in 30 minutes.

    *keeping fingers crossed*

    The game is patching now. I am very please to see how well Trion is bending over backwards to make this game very fun to play. This has got to be one of the best Patches I have ever seen for a game.

    Yet if it had been released with problems, you guys would still complain.   If they don't tell you about patch dates,  you compalin they don't talk to you.  If they are not perfect, you get to complain.  Even if they are perfect, if you don't like something you complain.

    You see everything as a complaint don't you? although i wasn't earlier but if you want i have a long list of complaints after the patch... interested? atleast then your post will be more relevant.
