Frontier has delayed the upcoming release of Elite Dangerous: Odyssey on console in order for the team to hunker down and get the PC version in a state that is acceptable to its team and the players. As such, no new date or timetable has been revealed for the console release, with CEO David Braben simply state that only when the PC experience is "solid" will the console roadmap be more clear moving forward.
In an update today, Frontier has detailed quite the list of bug fixes for Elite Dangerous: Odyssey players as they attempt to fix the problems introduced in the expansion.
