If you’ve been waiting for Elite Dangerous: Odyssey you will have to wait just a little longer as the development team is still pushing through to alpha testing in spring of 2021. Luckily the team at Frontier Developments believes they will launch the update in late spring on PC and on consoles sometime in autumn.
While describing Odyssey as a “truly ambitious new era for the game”, Frontier Developments states they are resolved in pushing full steam ahead to get the update complete in 2021, despite renewed lockdowns due to the ongoing pandemic. Issues resulting from the pandemic are the primary cause for the delays associated with the PC and console launch of Odyssey, with console seeing a much larger discrepancy in their release window than previously announced, pushing the release outside of the early 2021 launch originally planned.
