The new update for "X4: Foundations" has been released earlier today! The free update 2.60 is now available and improves the in-game economy significantly. In addition to a number of smaller fixes and improvements, the 2.60 update also optimizes navigation in the game, both for the player guidance system and for AI ships. In addition, the station overview and the station menu have been updated, and Russian voice recordings have been integrated into the game.

Split Vendetta postponed

EGOSOFT also announced that the expansion "X4: Split Vendetta" and the associated major update 3.0 for "X4: Foundations" will not be released in the fourth quarter of 2019 as originally announced. Instead, both elements are now scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2020.

"We’re very sorry about this delay and would particularly like to apologise to all owners of the X4: Foundations Collector's Edition, which includes the two future expansions. During the development of the X4: Split Vendetta expansion and the 3.0 update, a number of things have emerged that we really want to see implemented, optimised and fixed in time for the next big step forward for X4: Foundations in order to meet our own expectations as well as yours. We simply need a bit more time to do so."
