Sometimes game development just doesn’t go as smoothly as hoped, and unfortunately that has been the case for the Xbox Game Pass title Moonglow Bayas the Xbox version has been struggling for six months now.
In a lengthy post this week, the development team apologized for the Xbox issues, citing “extensive screen cracks and performance issues,” and stating, “We deeply regret the situations many of our players find themselves in.”
“Our working theory for this is that it’s a memory issue. Due to the quality of the in-game resources and the amount of activity during a given scene, the settings were very high, which could leave systems running out of RAM. The received at launch was not the standard and quality we wanted for our players, which is why we have been working daily on a variety of solutions to address this.”
In response to this, Moonglow Bay received a major new update on Xbox yesterday, with a slew of fixes as detailed in the long patch notes, and there is still much work to be done. Not everything is fixed in the new patch, so “additional patches will be coming to Moonglow Bay on Xbox platforms in the future.”
“The new update will allow you to continue your progress in Moonglow Bay and we hope you can now ‘unplug’ characters and go through some of the scenarios and issues that you had problems with. Said, there is still work to be done. “
Let’s hope that with the release of this major update, Moonglow Bay can finally get back on track on Xbox.
