Frontier Developments was originally planning to release Elite Dangerous: Odyssey in early 2021. However, the team has just announced that this expansion has been delayed until Spring 2021.
According to Frontier, the Alpha phase for Elite Dangerous: Odyssey will begin in early Spring 2021. Following the completion of this Alpha phase, the team targets a full launch on PC in late Spring.
The reason for this delay is quite obvious. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic and the renewed lockdowns in 2021, the team had no choice but to delay the expansion.
As we’ve already reported, Elite Dangerous Odyssey will allow players to touch down on countless new planets. Frontier claimed that the game will be using stunning new tech. Furthermore, it will allow players to explore with unrestricted freedom from a first person, feet-on-the-ground perspective.
Odyssey’s emergent gameplay will let players forge their own path through a wide variety of missions. These missions will range from diplomacy and commerce to lethal stealth and all-out combat. The game will also feature diverse settings, objectives, and NPCs, offering a mission variety.
