I doubt they have any deadlines when it comes to patching, Epic is not Steam where you can throw out a beta for people to test. They need to be sure the patch accomplishes it´s intended goals, that is really hard to put a date on unless you have tons of “patch testers”.
We’ve already seen what can happen releasing a patch if it’s not fully tested. We know where are issues that need fixing, and rest assured, we’re working to do that. At the same time, we don’t want to introduce more problems in a patch than we fix.
I dunno, i think there is a lot of angst even among people who are loving it, and a sooner patch that fixes X things would be received much better than waiting for a bigger one that fixes 2X things and needs a lot more testing.
I am sure they know from bug reports which things are making life most unpleasant for us.
Having a PP that works just a little better for the weekend would be preferable to even 3 times as many fixes on monday for me at least
