There is going to be some changes on December 5th as EA has said that some devices will possibly not work as they upgrade the software. So there is still a chance to see some update to our Springfields.
This discussion has been closed.
Ugh all this speculating tires me. -_-
This seems possible to me from a business perspective, as EA's fiscal year ends in March. If they do a purely Christmas update then the Oct-Dec quarter will have HUGE revenues (from Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas), but the final Jan-Mar quarter of their fiscal year will be very weak and disappointing. Holding the Christmas update so late, then calling it a winter update and keeping it until valentines day or saint patty's day might help their last quarter revenues.
Plus the Christmas App Store icon we've seen is just Homer in a jacket in the snow... Nothing particularly Christmas about that.
Thanks for the heads up gruffy! So the Halloween update was released on October 3rd... perhaps it's the same with the Christmas update.
Yeah, I've thought about that, too. Maybe the older devices will just not be supported? New content won't work? I don't know. I guess we'll see.
Who showed you the Apple Icon for the "Winter/Christmas" update? How do you know it's Homer in a jacket in the snow? Please show me a picture! Thanks
The new update will be required. This is actually quite common for software in general.
From what I understand, it will be impossible to play the old client version once the new one has been released.
edit for clarification: I don't mean "immediately impossible". There will be some delay between the release and the force upgrade. Sorry!
Just to clarify, if I open Tapped Out the day after the new version is made available on the App Store, I will not be able to play at all and will get an error message telling me I have to download the latest version from iTunes? Deactivation of the current version of an app without prior notice is really not at all common, even when upgrading to the new version is free.
If I am understanding you correctly, users may want to be aware of that in advance so we can plan accordingly.
Users should be aware of this...it was announced on Facebook on Nov 14th, as well as a push notification that went out to potentially affected users.
