Frontier Developments originally planned to release Elite Dangerous: Odyssey in early 2021. However, the studio has just announced that the massive expansion has been delayed until spring 2021.
According to Frontier, the alpha phase of Elite Dangerous: Odyssey will begin in early spring 2021. After the alpha phase is over, the studio intends to release the full version on PC in late spring.
We would like to sincerely apologise to all of our community. We know you have been waiting patiently and how disappointing and frustrating this must be. With that in mind, we would like to share with you our latest roadmap so that you are fully aware of our plans.
The reason for the delay is obvious. With the COVID 19 pandemic and quarantine resumption in 2021, Frontier Developments had no choice but to delay expansion.
