Disco Elysium: The Final Cut isn't in great shape on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. The console version of the critically acclaimed title suffers from a number of frustrating issues, some of which can actively prevent players from progressing through certain story beats. A patch looking to correct these problems was deployed earlier this week, but unfortunately, it didn't fix everything.
What's more, developer ZA/UM has stayed relatively quiet on the matter, which has drawn ire from disgruntled PlayStation gamers.
However, the studio has now published a well-meaning statement addressed directly to those playing Disco Elysium on PS5 and PS4. It reads:
Maybe blame it on the Doomed Commercial Area, birthplace of doomed dreams, resting place for every venture. Blame it on an incursion of the apocalypse in a localized space, or whatever Tequila Sunset hits you with. Blame it on a call to Abigail.
Or just blame it on us. Because it is our fault, that’s true. We’re all just human beings dreaming big, and not always making those dreams come true like we hope. But we’re going to try anyway, and try again, until we get it right. And we will.
Patch 1.3 is being worked on right now. We don’t have a launch date, but we wanted to tell you it’s coming, and tell you what y’all could expect.
- Tons of Voice Over fixes
- Improved Kim pathfinding
- Fixed controller interaction during Seafort Dream
- Fixed controller interaction with The Pigs
- Fixed Sandcastle interaction
- Fixed car interaction
- Fixed instances where the tide never receded near the swings
- Fixes pawnshop healing interaction
- Fixed Thought Cabinet freezes
- Fixed save game bugs
- Fixes for Cutscene locks and edge-case interactions with controllers
- And little bit this and that, general house cleaning after stormy development!
And that’s all we can say for now. We know it’s rough, we know it’s our fault, and we’re here to tell you it’s getting fixed.
Thanks for your patience. Keep the days happy.

So another update is coming soon, and ZA/UM knows that it's cocked up. Hopefully the game's remaining issues will be sorted out with this next patch, and we can finally get stuck into what is an undoubtedly fascinating release.
