An Update On Our Subnautica and Below Zero Plans

Posted by Donya 6 months ago

Hello Subnauts,

In our last major blog post, we outlined our current and future plans for the Subnautica series. We’ve been slowly and steadily chipping away at several items on that list and are thankful for your continued patience.

Some updates have made their way out already – including for the PS5, to address the disappearing saves and screen tearing – and we have a lot more still to come.

This blog post might get a little long, but if you stick it through to the end, we hope it’ll get you excited for what’s coming next.

What’s Next For The Subnautica Series?

Posted by Donya 1 year ago

Hello, Subnauts!

Since we launched Below Zero 1.0 – and Subnautica on Switch, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series – back in May we’ve been in a non-stop loop of investigating and fixing bugs. And in late August, we also brought support to Below Zero in four new languages.

But there’s still a lot more to do, and we have plenty of things planned, so we wanted to let you know what else we’ve been up to and what you can expect from us in the coming months. Please think of this as a summary of our priorities – as you may already know we do not make many public commitments to specific dates.

 

What are we up to now?

Hi Subnauts!

It has been a couple of weeks since we last posted to our blog about the issues we’re focused on quickly resolving post-launch. We wanted to give you an update on where we’re at with various patches and investigations.

❗ Disclaimer ❗ 

As always, this isn’t everything we’re working on, and we appreciate your continued patience and support while we track down and fix these bugs.

 

Critical Issues:

 

[Subnautica – PS5] Screen Tearing

 

We see and hear your reports of excessive screen tearing on PS5. Some backstory here: v-sync was turned on during development but was creating a nauseating “rubber-band” like sensation due to performance (framerate) fluctuations. The solution we chose at the time

Subnautica and Below Zero Launch Week Development Priorities

Posted by Donya 2 years ago

Hi Subnauts!

We are overwhelmed by the reception to Below Zero’s launch on Friday, and the team is immensely proud that we were able to simultaneously bring the game to so many platforms. We’re also proud to have brought the original Subnautica to the PS5, Xbox Series, and Switch platforms as well. What a wild ride!

All that said, no launch is perfect, and the team has been keeping a close eye on issues that players have been reporting since the game’s launch. There are a few bugs that are particularly concerning for us, and we wanted to take a moment to review what those are and which ones are currently under investigation.

Subnautica: Below Zero Console Plans and Roadmap

Posted by david 3 years ago

Hey everybody!

People have been asking us what our plans are for Below Zero on consoles, and I’d like to expand a little on what has been happening on that front since my roadmap post in July!  

We are planning to ship Below Zero on Xbox One and PS4. Our goal is to ship simultaneously with PC v1.0, but it’s probably too soon to know if that’s realistic. We have more work to do to make Below Zero as good as it can be before releasing it on any platform.

Behind the scenes, we’ve been working to improve our console efforts in-house. We learned a lot from the process of taking Subnautica to Xbox and PS4 (with
