Released for Xbox last week, free-to-play shooter CrossfireX arrived in a fairly sorry state, with some players on Xbox Game Pass unable to access the game's single-player campaign. Executive Producer Sooro Boo has since issued an apology to players, regarding the game's current state.
“It’s clear that we have inadvertently disappointed many of our players and fans that have stuck with us for a long time,” Boo writes in a ‘Developer Update’ post. “You mean everything to us and I felt that you deserved more than just a simple patch note, which is why I wanted to take this opportunity to personally apologize for the current state of the game.”
Beyond the issues with the Remedy-developed campaign, bugs affecting controller sensitivity, overall balance in multiplayer, and a problem when aiming down sights with the CAR-4 rifle, all of which are addressed by ‘Mr. Boo’ in the article. Developer Smilegate plans to sort these issues and more in a forthcoming patch, due to roll out as soon as possible.
“There will always be bugs and various issues when it comes to video games, but we felt that CrossfireX’s current issues had to do more with the core fundamentals of the game and that it felt like we’ve betrayed the trust of our players,” Boo added. “There is simply no excuse for this, which is why I wanted to make a personal apology and explain exactly what the issues are and how we plan to overcome them.”
CrossfireX is out now for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC, available to play via Xbox Game Pass.
