Square Enix in a rather shocking response says it has no idea if or when the save bug affecting players of Final Fantasy XV on Google Stadia will be fixed.
A lot has come to light since Google Stadia was unveiled last month. In its early days, the video game streaming service was found to cause connected Chromecast Ultra and laptops to overheat.
Late last month, we captured bug reports related to playing Final Fantasy XV on Google Stadia. One of the major issues was the inability to save progress, something we didn’t think the game developer, Square Enix, would address swiftly given the blame game between them and Google.
While the company has actually acknowledged the issue, in the latest developments, Square Enix has a rather shocking response to players of Final Fantasy XV on Google Stadia experiencing the save bug.
Apparently, the game developer has no idea if or when the bug will be fixed, which is just unfathomable coming from them.
Apparently, it seems this is a file size issue and as such, Square Enix says freeing up storage space by removing some of the games saved photos and/or keeping saving slots to 1 or 2. In case this doesn’t work, restarting the game at the risk of losing your current game session is the other alternative.
How do you recover from having constant trainwrecks every other day? Neither Google or Square know why anything is happening, and there's a chance the issue may never be fixed, so those 4 FFXV players may just have to start their game over at some arbitrary point. I guess Square won't be partnering with Google again in the future.
Also the overheating issues are becoming large on forums, some Chromecasts just don't work. This is becoming a nightmare, was it so hard for Google to release a finished product? You can't even use the Stadia controller with Laptops or phones until 2020, a feature they advertised would be ready out the box!
Hey, at least everyone who was frightened this would change the direction of the industry can breath easy now, so there's that.
