2.6.2 is intended to be a further bugfixing/polish patch with the main aim of improving the player experience, and building upon the foundations for features we introduced in 2.6.0, and built upon in 2.6.1. What we have represented in the schedule below are the smaller improvements to improve the player experience, such as the hopeful inclusion of the Multiplayer Mega Map, support for non 16:9 screen resolutions, fixes for the Arena Commander and Star Marine lobbies, along with general bugfixing from other teams.

We were aiming to have the first version of 2.6.2 published to the Evocati group today, but unfortunately we still have some unforeseen bugs with the Multiplayer Mega Map. The fixes are proving to be more in-depth and complex than initially thought, but the network team is working on these as their main priority, so we can push to the Evocati as soon as we’re able.
We published the first version of 2.6.2 to the Evocati group on Tuesday this week. Thanks to their feedback, we are continuing to fix remaining issues for Multiplayer Mega Map and Serialized Variables and although we are hoping to have all the kinks ironed out very soon, we began to release builds to the PTU. Also, as some of you may have discovered, we have included a new ship in 2.6.2, the Drake Interplanetary Buccaneer. We have not previously listed this as something we were including for 2.6.2 as we were unsure if the ship would be finished in time, but our ship team had an extra push to get it finished and in your hands for this release.
