If you own Just Cause 3 on PC and were expecting an update today, well, that's not happening. Avalanche has announced that the planned PC patch for its latest game has been delayed a few days, though those on consoles are still good to go.
Usually, it's the reverse situation — PC owners getting updates days — and sometimes weeks — before their living room compatriots. In the case of Just Cause 3's next patch, it's Xbox One and PS4 users that have smirking privileges.
Originally, Avalanche posted an announcement on the game's Steam page stating a patch would be out on Friday, though there was no mention of a time difference between platforms:
In preparation for the new AIR, LAND & SEA Expansion Pass content, the main game will also be receiving a new update on Friday March 4th that includes the following fixes:
- Reduced initial loading time and in-game loading screens by 20-50% - Fixed several memory leaks resulting in crashes - Reduced a number of random crashes - Improved streaming of game world - Some performance optimizations related to hitches and stuttering - Implemented DLC system in preparation of the Air, Land and Sea packages
This was followed a day later with this amendment:
To correct yesterday’s announcement on the JC3 patch - console users should see the patch filter through today, PC gamers should expect this next week. Please stay tuned and we will update you with the patch date as soon as possible.
The developer doesn't go into detail about the delay, but it's possible a problem was discovered that only affects the PC version. Seeing as how easy it is to roll out updates on Steam, I doubt players will be waiting too long for it.
