    Well that's that. Thank you! Any news is good news. Now we can all officially move on from console. Look forward to a new full game in a couple years for the kids to play on PS5. Will just have to break down and by a good gaming PC.

    Damn, so the console version is essentially discontinued unless the pc version finds major success? I understand the necessity of that where the families of those employed at TFP are concerned, thanks for sharing the news. It's disheartening to see the console version go under like that, but perhaps, with time, it can be developed in the future to mirror the changes made to the PC version.

    Thank you, TFP, for the update. Of course it's sad news for us all but I, for one, am glad that you were able to recover all the rights to the game. I wish you all the best for the PC version, if only that it may invigorate the possibility of a re-released console version. I'm still a big fan and will continue to play my console version of the game.

    Good luck and God bless.

    Wow, thanks for the update. I think we all knew it wasn’t financially going to happen for free. I hope that you might actually continue talking to the console section before the PC goes gold. Rather then the months of silence. You know get the pulse for how many of us would be willing to pay for DLC (update) for PS4 that Iron Galaxy was working on already. It has been said that the update was close to being finished. Maybe the cost of finishing that update could be offset by a kickstart/DLC option like the walking dead skins that TTG tried to offer. Since you have seen the numbers once already from the original sale of 7 days to die for console, re-releasing 7 days to die would due fairly well. I look forward to seeing it for PS5 next year.

    Look at it this way. They're dedicated to continuing work on it, but are more likely to wait until after the PC version is finished. Which quite honestly is what should have happened in the first place, but Telltale wanted to do differently.

    If TellTale were capable of making better business decisions on stuff like this, they likely wouldn't be gone now. Also the console version wouldn't exist yet.

    As stated before me, I would evaluate the console side before concluding anything.

    There are still many who cherish the game, and would continue to support future progression. Even if it was offered as a paid DLC, (obviously depending on what the contents included), I think you would still find success.

    Question is, have you talked to Iron Galaxy? Would they even be willing to step back up and continue their efforts? What happened wasn't TFP's fault, so I don't see why there would be any bad blood between you two.

    Honestly, I would expect to see a version eventually after the PC is officially released. Especially with next Gen consoles. While that is depressing in itself, I'm still grateful for the version I own today. (Of course just a little envy of the new POI's and painting system still lol).

    If at the least, would you be able to at the least work on the issues that plague consoles? Especially on the Xbox side? Just because I'm on PS4 doesn't mean they should be stuck with a broken game.

    Still, at least we finally have some form of news regarding the state of things. Speculation's will spew forth, so who knows what to maybe see in the future.

    But for now, I still got some mining to do for my future builds lol.

    Many thanks to TFP's for keeping us in the loop. Also well done for getting your own rights back, just a shame you had to go through such a minefield to obtain them. As for console ( I am a console player ) I personally would never go near it again,If I were TFP's and it was my business! Pains me to say as much as like all console players we are desperate for an update, but I guess some people in this world are desperate for food! Puts things into perspective I guess! Still all being said and done i definitely feel like I got my money's worth from a game I played almost exclusively for over 2 years. Guess it's time to start saving up for a PC!

    Too late, I already upgraded my PC so that I could continue to play your fabulous game. It's nice to hear, as I did leave a lot of console friends behind to play this, but we might yet play again and they can see for themselves the amazing progress you have made TFP. Don't stop doing what you're doing, every trial and tribulation was worth it.

    So consol players are in fact getting the shaft after all this time? Man glad we all paid for a broken port that seemingly is as dead today as it was 2 years ago. Sorry not waiting for you to continue to pour money into pc players so i can maybe buy a new version of the game (or wait years for the current update already years behind). Bad business decision all the way around not sure its fair TFP are blaming anyone and washing their hands of it

    Congrats Fun Pimps on getting the console rights back.
    I agree with Freestyle604, lets get with Iron Galaxy to finish the last update they were working on. Fund it with kickstarter, paid dlc through consoles, or whatever.

    I gotta disagree with SylenThunder on the "the game never should have been ported to console" statement. As this does unfortunately hold true for xbox users, the ps4 version runs perfectly fine. Had this game not been ported, i would probably have never heard of 7 Days to Die or even The Fun Pimps for that matter.
    I would love nothing more than to jump back in & support this unique, awesome, & quite frankly revolutionary game. The countless hours I've put into this game are priceless!

    In The Fun Pimps we trust!!!!

    Desired Outcome: "Bury" the console version and "shaft" console players.
    Strategy: Spend millions in court battles and other costs to re-acquire full rights to the console port.

    Seems legit.

    This is good news for console players because at least now there is a chance TFP could resurrect a console version. Not the same console version, but a version.

    I look forward to 7 Days to Die II on Xbox Two, coming Christmas 2021.

    sure as long as you are willing to buy the new version of it on the new console assuming they get another company involved who knows console games. For those who bought it hoping it was a finished game or would at least see support this is not good news in any way. Either we are still years out from an update or we'll never get an update and instead be roped into buying another version of this game.
