Global Agenda 2 and Tribes Ascend 2 Take Precedence Over Tribes Ascend Patch

The Tribes Ascend Forums have a response from Hi-Rez's Todd Harris to an Open Letter To Hi-Rez on reddit about patching Tribes Ascend, since the free-to-play shooter was last updated four months ago today (thanks PC Gamer). Todd explains that they will continue to support the game's servers, but the company's priority for the next six months is SMITE, and that updating their Tribes multiplayer shooter is still not their top priority after that. The implication is there may be no further updates for the game going forward, as their post-SMITE plan is a Global Agenda sequel, and though no one is working on Tribes Ascend 2, a sequel would probably take precedence over a patch as well. Here's word:

There are no major dev updates planned for Tribes: Ascend in the next six months.

For the next six months our primary development focus is SMITE. Beyond that it is GA2. And beyond that a TA2 would be more likely than a major update to TA; but to be clear no devs are currently working toward TA2.

Per the development blog on our forums, the recent TA work has been Kate developing some additional maps. If time allows then these new TA maps (along with some bug-fixes) would be finalized and deployed but no committed date yet.

We continue to support TA servers, online community events, tournaments with prizing, bringing Tribes to offline events like recent RTX and upcoming QuakeCon, and live-streaming.
