Default [UNCOVERED] SH5 officially left for dead!

As the new ComDev stated and elenaiba confirmed, there is no more team working on a patch for SH5. Both call the community to get hand on mods, to enhance the game. There is no patch planned "so far". Seems, as if our badest exspectations become true...

BAAM, there it is. The truth, directly in your face.





Let me finish this and say it like Michael did:

(SH5) This is it.

And this is news how? Think most already knew there's no team assigned to SH5.

Doesn't mean that won't change in the future.

The news is SH5 is now like Schrödinger's cat. It is both alive and dead until proven one way or another. It's statements like Ubisoft's that make the universe branch

I wouldn't go scaring children like that

Truth is, I've seen lots of buggy games cut from patch support. And I still can't forgive Ubi for not patching the spawning road blocks in Far Cry 2. Then there's Sh4 UBM with a buggy notepad and stadimeter, easy things to fix by the devs, but which were never fixed.

However, with all the "Silent Hunter is dead" threads and most modders jumping overboard or simply waiting for the next patch, Ubi's notorious "case closed" policy seems a bit more expected. That must be why Elanaiba and Sorlim urge us to continue to mod the game. With a bit more support from us and a more clear view of the bugs, they might persuade the suits to release another patch.

And, on the bright side, progress with SH5 mods has been stunning so far. I'm beginning to subscribe to the opinion that one year from now, SH5 will be
better than all previous titles (with mods ofc).

i think guys are just searching for some direct quote somewhere saying "i am official ubi spokesman and we will never fix sh5 and thats it"

its obvious to anyone who looks at it without the rose colored glasses that they are done with sh5 and what we have is all we will ever get but they will never admit that to the public (its just bad for buisness to admit it)

hoping for another patch is like hoping to win the lottery, we try to convince ourselves it could happen because there is a 0.00001% chance it might

Aye its true. The advancements made over the past couple weeks have been incredible. People just need to be a little more patient though, as some of them are still behind the scenes and need to be perfected.

after re-reading my comment i feel its important to add this:

sh5 will be a great game at some point even without ubi being involved in it anymore.

IMO it is the modders who made ubi games great and sh5 will be fixed by modders so its only a matter of giving them time.

in a year or two i think there will be a few mega mod choices that resolve "most" issues with the game and while there will still be major bugs and glitches due to ubi's unfinished work, the mods will make the rest good enough to overlook them.

only the future will tell, but the latest signs showed at least a glimmer of hope... So patience will be required, as usual.

Well if they are finished patching it, then they need to release one thing, a fix for DRM so can play the game offline and lets the mods(who do better work anyway) have at it.

So, lemmie get this straight. They released a half-baked sim and patches you can count on one hand and they abandoned it? And to think I paid money for it. I'm calling my lawyers.

No, it has been repeatedly stated that the game will be patched to allow offline play should the online servers be discontinued. Nothing to worry about in that case.

That, unfortunately, is when I'm likely to buy it. If it wasn't for a "certain issue" I'd have bought it by now.

A pity, as it looks as though it'll be a fine U-Boat sim once the modders have given it a thorough makeover.

Mike.
