Publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Sumo Digital have responded to player feedback following the launch of PvPvE heist game Hood: Outlaws & Legends, saying that improved matchmaking times will be targeted in an upcoming update.
Long matchmaking times count among the issues reported by players who picked up Hood: Outlaws & Legends. In some cases, filling up matches takes much too long, which is less than ideal in a multiplayer title. Sometimes, leaving that session and looking for a new match instantly gets you into a full lobby, but that's, sadly, not a reliable fix.
"We have an update on the way to improve matchmaking times. And we'll continue to work on this crucial aspect of the game after the update," reads a recent Steam post outlining Focus Home Interactive and Sumo Digital's plans going forward.
"We know some of you would like to remove the 62 FPS cap on PC.", it continues, touching upon another thing that isn't sitting too well with players. "This request is clear to us, and we're currently checking the amount of work required to do that. We know it seems like a small tweak, but removing the cap actually causes a lot of technical issues in the game, and we have to evaluate the impact of this change on our production pipeline before committing to anything on that front."
The team is also working on fixing the black screen issue that some players are encountering. Hood: Outlaws & Legends Season 0 is currently underway, with more post-launch content being slated to release throughout the year.
