Less than a month after saying they’d give out in-game content to all MLB The Show 17 players as compensation for the server issues at launch, Sony San Diego has delivered on their promise.

In a statement, the developer revealed that everyone who played MLB The Show 17 between March 28 at 12:01am PT and May 11 at 1pm PT will have 10 Standard Packs and 11,000 Stubs automatically added to their account. The content will be given out in waves over the next week, and some players are already reporting that they’ve received it.

Here’s what Sony San Diego had to say about MLB The Show 17’s issues:

We take pride in developing and delivering an excellent gaming experience every year for our fans. This year is no different. Unfortunately, we’re less than happy with unexpected server issues that have accompanied the launch of MLB The Show 17 and know you are too – for this we apologize.

We’ve been working without pause to address a number of server and gameplay issues to restore the online experience we had hoped to achieve at launch. Some of these changes have been made visible to our community in the form of patches and in-game messages, while other upgrades haven’t been publicized, in the form of back end server updates.

We’re pleased to report that these updates have made great strides to address the main issues related to online gameplay and have led to an improved gameplay experience for our fans.

Sony San Diego has released a new patch for MLB The Show 17 in each of the last three weeks. It remains to be seen if a new patch will also come out next week.
