We hope you weren’t looking forward to participating in Frontier’s $100,000 CQC Elite Dangerous tournament because, well, it isn’t running anymore. Frontier previously announced that they would be hosting a tournament at the end of 2016, but this has changed as a result of features to Elite Dangerous being delayed throughout the year.
“In order to run the tournament we wanted to bring in a number of specific features which would allow us to run the event in the way we had planned,” said Frontier in their latest blog post. “However, as you may remember the 2.1 update required a little longer in development as we focused on game improving features that went through the core game play experience and brought our largest Elite Dangerous update to date.”
Wethat Elite Dangerous wasn’t officially coming to Oculus, and that the developers ”chosen to focus on SteamVR.” But today, they’re singing a different tune!
