With players continuing to experience server issues, MLB The Show 17 developer Sony San Diego Studio has sent out a message to the community, admitting that “we haven’t been satisfied with certain areas in The Show 17.”
They added, “Since launch, we have identified and addressed a number of issues related to online gameplay – from freezes and hangs, to longer than normal wait times for the game processing queue. We’re still all hands on deck working to remedy outstanding issues.”
A new patch for MLB The Show 17 is in the works to help resolve the remaining issues, and Sony San Diego says they’ll offer up a status update once there’s more information to share. They’re aware that this whole situation can be frustrating for players, so “in acknowledgement of that frustration we are planning to give in-game content to all of you.” More details on the free content will be shared in the future.
The team also highlighted the changes they’ve made to the queue processing system since launch on March 28:
When a game completes properly (i.e. both users finish to the end), scores should post quickly with no queue message. The back end has been refined to ensure the win/loss is updated immediately, but the rest of the stats from the game might take more time to process. When a game ends prematurely, due to a user disconnect or other abnormal action, the system is designed to take extra time to process, allowing the game to post correctly. In regards to the Online Franchise, changes are in place to help shorten the amount of time required to process leagues.
MLB The Show 17 was the #4 most-downloaded PlayStation 4 game last month in North America.
