Eagle-eyed NeoGAF community members have noticed a change in the Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2 product listing on Steam: the description of post-launch support has been changed from “for more than a year” (also noting “free updates”) to “for over 6 months”:
Indeed, an archive.org capture showcases this original text, which was also provided to the press in the original announcement materials back in June, albeit phrased slightly differently at that point (“Updates and post launch support for up to one year”).
The first Dragon Ball XENOVERSE saw three DLC packs released over its lifetime bundled into its $24.99 season pass, with the third and final major pack releasing in June 2015, four months after the game’s original release.
The season pass for Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2, promising “4 content packs” in the future, is available on PC and consoles for $29.99.
Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2 will be available worldwide over the next week for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. In North America, the game launched for consoles 25 October 2016 with a PC release following 28 October 2016. In Europe, the game also launches across all platforms 28 October 2016. In Japan, the game will exclusively launch on the PlayStation 4 console 02 November 2016.
UPDATE: The American branch of Bandai Namco posted the following message to their Facebook page later the same day:
Several of you spotted a sudden change on the Steam description page and we are happy to confirm that this was only a technical mistake: the support on the game will go on as planned for a year!
We have exciting updates coming for the game in the coming months and will share more info on this in the near future, so stay tuned!
Thank you for your support!
