MLB The Show 17 released back in March 28, and recently, players have been reporting several connectivity problems with the game’s servers.
Developer Sony San Diego Studio admitted that there is a problems with connectivity, and as a result the studio “planning to give in-game content to all of you.” The upcoming patch will hopefully solve most of the issues.
Since launch, we have identified and addressed a number of issues related to online gameplay – from freezes and hangs, to longer than normal wait times for the game processing queue. We’re still all hands on deck working to remedy outstanding issues.
When a game completes properly (i.e. both users finish to the end), scores should post quickly with no queue message. The back end has been refined to ensure the win/loss is updated immediately, but the rest of the stats from the game might take more time to process. When a game ends prematurely, due to a user disconnect or other abnormal action, the system is designed to take extra time to process, allowing the game to post correctly. In regards to the Online Franchise, changes are in place to help shorten the amount of time required to process leagues.
Have you been suffering from the reported connectivity issues lately?
