Telltale has confirmed that a fix for the save issue in their take on Game of Thrones is in certification.
The issue which affected numerous players on Xbox One saw choices made in Episode One not carry through into Episode Two correctly.
The developer took to their forum to announce, “We have submitted a patch to Microsoft to resolve the issue some customers have experienced where Episode One choices did not carry over into Episode Two. We expect the patch to be released in the next 7-10 days and will update his thread as soon as it is available. We really appreciate everyone’s patience and hope to have you playing with your choices very soon.”
All updates and games are submitted to Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony prior to release to ensure they meet each platforms technical requirements checklists and guidelines. That process usually takes between one and two weeks depending on 1st party and how busy they are. These first party checks don’t necessarily look for bugs in a game although they do get reported to the developer for the dev team to make the decision on whether they will address it or not prior to launch.
