Hi everyone! Playing Subnautica on Xbox One? Experienced problems saving and loading the game? We’re very sorry this is happening, and we want you to know that we’re working on fixing the problem right now.
Once we have identified the cause, and repaired the relevant code, we will release an update on Xbox One. We can’t give an estimated time for the release, but this is absolutely our top priority and we will update as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, this kind of bug is part of the ‘Preview Program’ experience: The game is not finished, and while we endeavour to make these development versions reliable, some times they are going to blow up.
That doesn’t make the problem acceptable. Looking to the future: rock-solid, reliable saving and loading is crucial and non-negotiable. We very much appreciate your feedback as we work on making it reliable.
