Development Q&A

From Deep Rock Galactic Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a collection of responses that the developers of Ghost Ship Games have given to community suggestions made in chat during weekly developer streams (broadcast to both Twitch and YouTube). All links include timestamps.

Disclaimer: please remember that the responses below should not be taken as gospel truth.

  • The developers who stream the game don't know (or sometimes can't talk about) every detail about the state of everything currently in the works, and reply with their thoughts and opinions.
  • GSG's development process is flexible enough that not every decision is set in stone. Plans may change as the game changes, and what had been shared in the past may not be true some time later.
  • The stream team is splitting its attention between playing the game and answering questions. Miscommunication happens, and sometimes people simply forget or mix things up.
  • Some responses are straight-up jokes. Use your judgement.

What is not on this list:

  • Questions along the lines of "When is the next update?" or "Is the next update going to have X?" You can view the latest roadmap here.
  • Questions like "What is your favorite weapon?" and other open-ended questions not phrased as suggestions or ideas for Deep Rock Galactic.
  • Questions about adding features that are already in the game and that the question asker wasn't aware of.
  • Questions that were misinterpreted, and the response didn't really answer the question.
  • Questions which nobody could really comment on.

If you'd like to contribute to the list, please follow the guidelines.

To group duplicates together, click the "Category" header. Otherwise the responses are sorted by date from newest to oldest, then by category, then by suggestion alphabetically. Refresh the page to return to the default sorting.

Use [Ctrl] + [F] to search for specific keywords. If you want to search through the entire history of over 3 000 comments filtered by category, there's a Google spreadsheet better suited for that.

Miscellaneous - Franchise DRG dating sim Very unlikely, except maybe as a fan creation 03.05.2024 Dev Stream 03.05.2024
Miscellaneous - Franchise Small animated series They never considered it seriously; the amount of supervision required to ensure they like it would take time away from the actual game 03.05.2024 Dev Stream 03.05.2024
Perks Perk rework Not coming in Season 5; they considered it, but it didn't make the final cut 03.05.2024 Dev Stream 03.05.2024

Equipment - Melee Expansion to melee combat No plans 02.05.2024 Dev Stream 02.05.2024
Equipment - Overclocks Jumping OCs for Driller and Gunner Noone has been talking about it, and giving every class a mobility OC could probably lead to too much mobility 02.05.2024 Dev Stream 02.05.2024
Miscellaneous - Achievements Achievement for finishing Deep Scan without jet boots It's a really fun idea, but unfortunately they're not adding any more achievements 02.05.2024 Dev Stream 02.05.2024
Missions - Escort Duty Player survival bonus for Doretta's head No, because that's not why we're supposed to save Doretta's head - it's the shopping cart test 02.05.2024 Dev Stream 02.05.2024
Space Rig - Activities Prop beer puts a black screen for a while They considered that and a number of other options, but ultimately everything was either annoying or conducive to griefing 02.05.2024 Dev Stream 02.05.2024
UI - Load-Outs More slots for weapon builds No plans 02.05.2024 Dev Stream 02.05.2024

Creatures Add other scrapped enemies Not for Season 5; the Stalker wasn't scrapped, it was postponed because it wasn't visually up to snuff 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Creatures - Bosses More dreads Mike would love to, but they take a lot of time to design 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Creatures - Variants Ebonite Bulk Detonator No 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024

Equipment - Engineer LOK-1 / Stubby mods interacting with turrets Not mods, but overclocks for those were considered at one point 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Equipment - Engineer Upgrade for turrets to slowly traverse terrain No, they have not considered it; that is not the point of turrets in Deep Rock Galactic 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Equipment - Overclocks Equipment overclocks No, tools define classes in a big way, and they want everyone to be able to have a reliable expectation of what a class can do 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Features First-person spectating If we mean joining a game and flying around in first person, then no plans 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Gameplay - Hazard Level Cheaper resupplies / more Nitra for Haz 5+ No plans for either; they don't want to touch too many of the systems with Haz 5+ 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Gameplay - Hazard Level Difficulty options for Deep Dives No, the point of the Deep Dives is to have a set difficulty 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Miscellaneous - Franchise Crossover with Subnautica Doubtful 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Miscellaneous - Merchandise OST vinyl available in Europe All European stock is sold out, if they ever do a rerun they'll let us know 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Missions - Deep Scan Elevator music for Deep Scan No, the elevator causes a swarm so there will be combat music playing 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Progression - Seasons Reroll season challenges for credits Probably not 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Soundtrack More soundtrack Even less likely now that Troels has left Ghost Ship Games 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Space Rig Petting zoo No 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Space Rig - Activities More arcade machines Nothing planned, and something like that is more likely to come spontaneously without being planned 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Space Rig - Activities More props for the prop hunt game Yes, there will be more props 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Space Rig - Shooting Range Firing range We should test our weapons in the missions 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Technical FSR 3.0 Most likely not, because integrating FSR with Unreal Engine 4 is looking like a lot of work; DLSS 3.0 is likely to come in Season 5 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
UI Filter for unseasoned cosmetics only Sounds like a good idea, but even the filters coming in Season 5 took a tremendous amount of work; shout-out to Amanda 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
UI Search field for cosmetics No; a filter checkbox is a good example of something that seems simple from the outside, but actually takes quite a lot of work 26.04.2024 Dev Stream 26.04.2024
Creatures - Variants New Ebonite enemies e.g. Mactera No, just the existing two; an Ebonite Mactera would be especially horrible since it's a ranged enemy that can only be damaged with melee 25.04.2024 Dev Stream 25.04.2024
Gameplay - Hazard Level Plus settings for hazards below 5 They considered it, but they want to be able to talk about a hazard level with everyone knowing what it means; plus settings blur the lines 25.04.2024 Dev Stream 25.04.2024
Miscellaneous - Achievements New achievements in Season 5 No 25.04.2024 Dev Stream 25.04.2024
Miscellaneous - Merchandise New merchandise They have been talking with some partners about possible collaboration, but it's a completely different and complicated business 25.04.2024 Dev Stream 25.04.2024
Missions - Deep Dives Elite Deep Dive + No plans; DDs are specifically locked in layout and difficulty to allow learning them and having a shared experience of beating them 25.04.2024 Dev Stream 25.04.2024
Perks - Points Perk rework Not in Season 5; they're aware of the perk point surplus, and we're going to have even more with the new mission type and warnings 25.04.2024 Dev Stream 25.04.2024
Space Rig Expansion of the Space Rig If they do it, it'll happen organically when something new needs space, they don't expand for the sake of expanding 25.04.2024 Dev Stream 25.04.2024
Classes - Voice Lines Voice lines of MC being fed up with the freighter pilot It's becoming a tradition at this point 21.03.2024 Dev Stream 21.03.2024
Creatures - Humanoid Humanoid enemies It seems there are humanoid enemies in the DRG universe, but they're not announcing anything for DRG 21.03.2024 Dev Stream 21.03.2024
Miscellaneous - Franchise Helldivers collab They're emailing each other, but Arrowhead are too busy putting out fires 21.03.2024 Dev Stream 21.03.2024
Perks More perks Not in Season 5 21.03.2024 Dev Stream 21.03.2024
Miscellaneous - Franchise Hackable Hulk from HD2 in DRG That would be cool 08.03.2024 Dev Stream 08.03.2024
Technical - Crossplay Crossplay It's pretty close to "out of the question", although it could happen in some distant universe 08.03.2024 Dev Stream 08.03.2024
Biomes Caustic Mire It's just a visual concept, they'll sit on it until they figure out how to make it more interesting than Fungus Bogs 2 07.03.2024 Dev Stream 07.03.2024
Classes - 5th Class More class No 07.03.2024 Dev Stream 07.03.2024
Cosmetics - Dwarves Bring back anniversary hats Those are one of the few examples of hats that are not coming back 07.03.2024 Dev Stream 07.03.2024
Cosmetics - Equipment Skins for traversal tools Unlikely to happen, there are too many things with a higher priority 07.03.2024 Dev Stream 07.03.2024
Creatures Glyphid Stalker for Season 5 It's likely 07.03.2024 Dev Stream 07.03.2024
Equipment New weapons No work is being made on that, they are only going to add guns if they are confident they feel distinct from the existing set 07.03.2024 Dev Stream 07.03.2024
Features - Streaming Twitch game engine plugins It would be cool to have it natively, but there's a mod for exactly that, and it's so fleshed out that they could hardly compete with it 07.03.2024 Dev Stream 07.03.2024
Miscellaneous - Franchise Helldivers 2 collab No plans, but the more we ask, the more screenshots they can show to their bosses as proof of interest 07.03.2024 Dev Stream 07.03.2024
Perks Update to the perk system Addressed during the most recent anniversary stream 07.03.2024 Dev Stream 07.03.2024
Progression - Matrix Cores Improve overclock grind It takes a while to get all overclocks - that's intentional; we should try out the overclocks that did drop 07.03.2024 Dev Stream 07.03.2024
Progression - Seasons Fix Double PP trophies being useless The trophies aren't meant to be rewarding for someone who's finished the pass; as for the extra spawns, they're unsure it's intentional 07.03.2024 Dev Stream 07.03.2024
Technical - Crossplay Crossplay Very likely not, it requires a lot of technical stuff - refer to the first dev stream of 2024 for a detailed explanation 07.03.2024 Dev Stream 07.03.2024
UI - Load-Outs Ability to name load-outs No plans, but as a heads-up: there's an option to assign icons to load-outs 07.03.2024 Dev Stream 07.03.2024
Biomes New biomes They'd prefer adding new biomes over updating old ones, players generally don't reward updates to old content as much as new content 29.02.2024 Anniversary Stream '24
Equipment - Overclocks OCs from DRG: Survivor in DRG Some ideas might spill over as inspiration, but there probably won't ever be anything carried over one-to-one 29.02.2024 Anniversary Stream '24
Miscellaneous - Franchise Helldivers collaboration They're not even trying to approach HD devs right now, Arrowhead are busy trying to wrangle their success under control 29.02.2024 Anniversary Stream '24
Miscellaneous - Merchandise Merch There's always hope, but nothint definite to say at this point; they want to solve this problem, but can't promise they will 29.02.2024 Anniversary Stream '24
Perks Revisit the perk system It's on their wishlist; they've been discussing it, but haven't decided on the scope and the approach 29.02.2024 Anniversary Stream '24
Cosmetics - Equipment Stat boosts from weapon frameworks They want to keep gameplay advantages separate from cosmetics 23.02.2024 Dev Stream 23.02.2024
Cosmetics - Machinery Molly cosmetics Might not be something they'd work on themselves, but there was a mod for that called "Fabulous Molly" 23.02.2024 Dev Stream 23.02.2024
Creatures - Variants Radioactive bulk detonator They decided against it to make the regular Bulk more special; besides, a radioactive big boom isn't all that different from a regular one 23.02.2024 Dev Stream 23.02.2024
Drinks - Buff New buff beers Not a hard "no", but buff beers take a surprisingly long time to make, so it depends on what else they're doing 23.02.2024 Dev Stream 23.02.2024
Equipment - Melee Lightsabers When Disney calls them 23.02.2024 Dev Stream 23.02.2024
Equipment - Melee Lightsabers They don't think they'll ever put one in the game 23.02.2024 Dev Stream 23.02.2024
Equipment - Overclocks New mobility overclocks Maybe? it mostly depends on whether they can come up with something that creates fun gameplay and doesn't break it 23.02.2024 Dev Stream 23.02.2024
Equipment - Overclocks New OCs or OC changes Right now the plan is to add one new overclock for each of the 12 primaries in Season 5 23.02.2024 Dev Stream 23.02.2024
Features - Modding Modding support for consoles Based on how everything looks now, it's not a definite "no", but it's close to a definite "no" 23.02.2024 Dev Stream 23.02.2024
Miscellaneous - Franchise Helldivers 2 crossover Neither of them called each other; plus, Helldivers 2 devs might be a little busy right now 23.02.2024 Dev Stream 23.02.2024
Perks Perk changes It's something they're thinking about, but not something they're actively working on; it's on the internal wishlist 23.02.2024 Dev Stream 23.02.2024
Space Rig Changes to the Space Rig layout Nothing major planned, we shouldn't expect any radical changes 23.02.2024 Dev Stream 23.02.2024
Space Rig - Activities Among Us beer Might be a little too complicated for DRG (and a bit redundant now that prop hunt is live) 23.02.2024 Dev Stream 23.02.2024
Technical - Crossplay Crossplay Still very, very, very likely not going to happen 23.02.2024 Dev Stream 23.02.2024

Equipment Fourth weapon for each dwarf Not off the table, but also not something they're actively working on 22.02.2024 Dev Stream 22.02.2024
Miscellaneous Fan enemy design contest Not sometihng they considered hosting 22.02.2024 Dev Stream 22.02.2024
Miscellaneous - Achievements New achievements If they add any, the total won't be 69 (also, there's nothing that QA loves more than spending a hundred hours to test an achivement) 22.02.2024 Dev Stream 22.02.2024
Miscellaneous - Franchise Collab with another game It's mostly a question of "do they have the time for that, and if yes, what does that mean for all the other things they do?" 22.02.2024 Dev Stream 22.02.2024
Miscellaneous - Franchise Helldivers 2 crossover If Helldivers devs approach GSG, at least some at GSG are going to be very annoyingly advocating that they should make it happen 22.02.2024 Dev Stream 22.02.2024
Miscellaneous - Franchise Mission Control idle game Would be cool 22.02.2024 Dev Stream 22.02.2024
Miscellaneous - Lore More lore about the DRG universe There won't ever be an official complete lore compendium 22.02.2024 Dev Stream 22.02.2024
Missions - Mutators New anomalies in Season 5 Likely 22.02.2024 Dev Stream 22.02.2024

Space Rig - Activities Add a time limit to Prop Hunt The decision for no time limit was deliberate; if some groups want a shorter round, they can coordinate via chat 22.02.2024 Dev Stream 22.02.2024
Space Rig - Activities Change props during holiday season It's something they want to do, the question is whether they have the time to implement that 22.02.2024 Dev Stream 22.02.2024
Space Rig - Activities Holiday props for Prop Hunt If the game isn't currently set up like this, they can hopefully enable turning into holiday props when the corresponding holiday is live 22.02.2024 Dev Stream 22.02.2024
Space Rig - Activities Tag minigame beer No plans, but there's a vibrant modding community with a very active Discord server 22.02.2024 Dev Stream 22.02.2024
Creatures - Mini-Bosses Ability to pet Bet-C Never going to happen, Bet-C has been down in the caves for a long time, it's covered in germs and dirt 16.02.2024 Dev Stream 16.02.2024
Creatures New special enemy Possibly 02.02.2024 Dev Stream 02.02.2024
Equipment New weapons/tools Probably not in Season 5 or 6, but maybe after that 02.02.2024 Dev Stream 02.02.2024
Miscellaneous - Lore Expand lore The plan is to continue as they have been doing it - with general worldbuilding; Season 5 will have some lore tie-in with Rogue Core 02.02.2024 Dev Stream 02.02.2024
Miscellaneous - Lore Stuff for the future of Karl They probably aren't going to expand on that, the team is pretty happy with the vagueness of it 02.02.2024 Dev Stream 02.02.2024
Soundtrack "Journey of the Prospector" on Spotify Someone's probably working on it 02.02.2024 Dev Stream 02.02.2024

Cosmetics - Equipment Pink paintjob for weapons It's the kind of thing that could happen as a seasonal weapon maintenance reward 01.02.2024 Dev Stream 01.02.2024
Equipment - Overclocks Multiple OCs on one weapon Not something we'll see in Deep Rock Galactic, but in DRG: Survivor we can 01.02.2024 Dev Stream 01.02.2024
Features - Modding Fundamental changes to the game based on mods They don't have telemetry on all mods that are being made, but they keep an eye on mods to weapon balance 01.02.2024 Dev Stream 01.02.2024
Gameplay Dwarf-controlled machinery Nothing like mechs planned (but an early prototype of Doretta was driveable) 01.02.2024 Dev Stream 01.02.2024
Miscellaneous - DLC Steampunk DLC No, because it's not 2006 01.02.2024 Dev Stream 01.02.2024
Miscellaneous - Merchandise Merch store A merch store is unlikely, but they're looking at a few limited but cool merch options 01.02.2024 Dev Stream 01.02.2024

Drinks Hold one beer in each hand in Season 5 Probably not 26.01.2024 Dev Stream 26.01.2024

Missions New mission type or biome A new mission type is probably happening in Season 5 26.01.2024 Dev Stream 26.01.2024
Perks Perk to throw the pickaxe like a boomerang No plans 26.01.2024 Dev Stream 26.01.2024
Classes - Voice Lines Dubs for other languages They rely on fan translations for text, but they're not going to commit to localized voice lines; maybe fans or AI can solve that 18.01.2024 Dev Stream 18.01.2024
Creatures Add Rammer from the board game Strong "no", it's redundant in the video game since the Shellback already fills the "strong armored guy that pushes you around" niche 18.01.2024 Dev Stream 18.01.2024
Creatures Remove Bulk Detonators That's going to be filed under "Skill Issue", sorry 18.01.2024 Dev Stream 18.01.2024

Missions New mission types In the works for Season 5 18.01.2024 Dev Stream 18.01.2024

Cosmetics - Machinery Update to Molly, skins No plans for Molly skins 12.01.2024 Dev Stream 12.01.2024

Equipment - Overclocks New overclocks Yes, planned for Season 5 12.01.2024 Dev Stream 12.01.2024

Missions - Mutators Rework the "Low Oxygen" warning No plans 12.01.2024 Dev Stream 12.01.2024

Classes - Voice Lines Add a "I love miners!" voice line Nice try, pal 05.01.2024 Dev Stream 05.01.2024

Equipment - Flares Flare upgrades or cosmetics Not going to happen; in early versions flares used to be upgradable, but they distracted players from more interesting upgrades 05.01.2024 Dev Stream 05.01.2024
Equipment - Gunner Increase speed on a zipline No, the speed is fine as it is 05.01.2024 Dev Stream 05.01.2024
Equipment - Gunner Ridiculously fast zipline on April Fool's Day Would be funny, and it'd be so fast the dwarf takes and deals damage impacting on the other end 05.01.2024 Dev Stream 05.01.2024
Equipment - Overclocks Grenade overclocks Unlikely; if they ever decide to add more variety to grenades, they'll just add more grenades 05.01.2024 Dev Stream 05.01.2024
Gameplay Friendly fire reduction after the objective is done It sucks that this kind of griefing happens, but it's not a frequent enough occurrence to warrant an intervention like that 05.01.2024 Dev Stream 05.01.2024
Missions Survival-type mission Unlikely; missions should have a predictable duration, plus classes work better when there's something beyond just shooting 05.01.2024 Dev Stream 05.01.2024
Missions - Escort Duty Aim assist for mining minerals and oil shale The small bits around the edge can be left unmined, they don't really matter (unless they bother us) 05.01.2024 Dev Stream 05.01.2024
Perks - Beastmaster More tamable enemy types No, that would make the perk too powerful; a post-release bug with the coil gun made everything tamable, and it was a mess 05.01.2024 Dev Stream 05.01.2024
Space Rig Lootbug pet at the Space Rig That's probably more likely that a Steeve (which is basically never); also a lootbug could be trained to be a Roomba 05.01.2024 Dev Stream 05.01.2024
UI - Missions Commendations at the end of a mission A lack thereof is an intentional decision to not encourage people to compete for titles and stats 05.01.2024 Dev Stream 05.01.2024
Cosmetics - Dwarves Furry armor & helmet A remarkably frequent suggestion, someone emails them every once in a while; no, they already have bunny ears 04.01.2024 Dev Stream 04.01.2024
Cosmetics - Dwarves Red Dead Redemption 2 hat Aaron and Jacob spent an hour trying to convince Mike to do this, but no luck so far 04.01.2024 Dev Stream 04.01.2024
Cosmetics - Machinery Drop pod skins No, you can't do better than the color red 04.01.2024 Dev Stream 04.01.2024
Equipment LithoVac scares the ghost Bulk Detonator They considered making the LithoVac the only way to kill the ghost, but didn't have time to flesh out the idea 04.01.2024 Dev Stream 04.01.2024
Features - Team Size Native support for bigger teams No, that invites too many balance concerns 04.01.2024 Dev Stream 04.01.2024
Gameplay - Objectives Random events as mandatory objectives in Deep Dives No plans for that probably 04.01.2024 Dev Stream 04.01.2024
Miscellaneous Podcast Would be cool; would also be more convenient once they move offices so that interviews don't take place in an open space 04.01.2024 Dev Stream 04.01.2024
Missions New missions It's something they're working on for Season 5, it's intended to be one of the things in the update 04.01.2024 Dev Stream 04.01.2024
Space Rig - Activities Cave-Leech-themed crane machine That's a good idea 04.01.2024 Dev Stream 04.01.2024
Space Rig - Activities Claw machine next to the bar That would be great 04.01.2024 Dev Stream 04.01.2024
Technical - Crossplay Cross-platform That would require an account system and a whole lot of data wrangling, too big a coding task, no plans 04.01.2024 Dev Stream 04.01.2024
Biomes - Appearance Sufficiently big explosions in sand create glass They don't have a system which takes the size of the explosion into account - each biome has one "explosion material" and that's it 22.12.2023 Dev Stream 22.12.2023
Cosmetics - Equipment Chillaxe parts changing color No plans; it's set to blue because it's "made of" ice 22.12.2023 Dev Stream 22.12.2023
Drinks - Buff Permanently available Dark Morkite No, buff beers are supposed to be on a rotation 22.12.2023 Dev Stream 22.12.2023
Equipment More upgrades for the pickaxe and Bosco There's room for them, but they're not in the plans 22.12.2023 Dev Stream 22.12.2023
Equipment - Driller Cryo Cannon cooling down hot rock It's something they discussed very early in development but never pulled the trigger on; doable in theory 22.12.2023 Dev Stream 22.12.2023
Equipment - Scout Sonar grenade that scouts the cave The Scout himself is the sonar grenade, he flings himself into a cave and scouts it 22.12.2023 Dev Stream 22.12.2023
Progression Progressing different assignments in a team If we decide to help someone with an assignment, they want it to be a conscious choice that has a cost (not progressing our assignment) 22.12.2023 Dev Stream 22.12.2023
Space Rig - Activities Poker table in Season 8 That would be cool 22.12.2023 Dev Stream 22.12.2023
Creatures Board game enemies in the video game No plans to update the Nexus model - it looks awesome in the board game, but if they do, other old models will look even older in comparison 21.12.2023 Dev Stream 21.12.2023
Equipment More pickaxe upgrades No plans, but there's space for it - it's a question of priorities 21.12.2023 Dev Stream 21.12.2023
Features - Campaign Story mode Doubtful 21.12.2023 Dev Stream 21.12.2023
Features - Streaming Twitch drops Would be cool to explore in the future 21.12.2023 Dev Stream 21.12.2023
Miscellaneous - Franchise DRG graphic novel or comic A lot of them think it'd be awesome, but no plans to make anything like that 21.12.2023 Dev Stream 21.12.2023
Missions - Escort Duty Mining laser kills swarmers No; it would be hilarious if they chased the laser instead like cats, but "no" to that as well, that's too funny 21.12.2023 Dev Stream 21.12.2023
Classes Make Scout less explodable No plans 15.12.2023 Dev Stream 15.12.2023
Creatures - Bosses New Dreadnoughts Maybe not in Season 5, but not out of the question in general 15.12.2023 Dev Stream 15.12.2023
Creatures - Variants Lootbug variations Not sure what they could put in them, crafting minerals maybe? a mini-boss that has to be fed minerals would be neat 15.12.2023 Dev Stream 15.12.2023
Equipment - Overclocks Overclocks for traversal tools No plans, traversal tools require a very fine balance, and OCs could easily throw it out of whack 15.12.2023 Dev Stream 15.12.2023
Gameplay - Call-Downs Bring back call-downs other than resupplies One of the reasons they were scrapped is that they encroached too much on class roles 15.12.2023 Dev Stream 15.12.2023
Missions Dancing missions When they worked on an accessibility option for mashing A+D, they had a DDR-like minigame, but it was ultimately scrapped 15.12.2023 Dev Stream 15.12.2023
Missions New mission type Their hope is to add another mission type not too long from now 15.12.2023 Dev Stream 15.12.2023
Technical - Platform Switch port Probably never, it doesn't have the memory required to handle caves without a major rework of the cavegen algorithm 15.12.2023 Dev Stream 15.12.2023
Classes - Voice Lines Unique shouts when downed by a Cave Leech Cool idea, although it might be too much of a tell that there's a Cave Leech involved, they don't want it to be too obvious 08.12.2023 Dev Stream 08.12.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves More cosmetics like armor sets "Yes" to more cosmetics, and it's all but certain there will be another DLC for Season 5; they're also workshopping another tier for armors 08.12.2023 Dev Stream 08.12.2023
Equipment Revive pistol They've said "no" to a medic class before, and anyone with a revive pistol would effectively become a medic class 08.12.2023 Dev Stream 08.12.2023
Gameplay Auto-sprint option No, the game director doesn't want that 08.12.2023 Dev Stream 08.12.2023
Gameplay - Hazard Level Hazard 6 Extremely likely not - it's not a very smart use of their time to develop something that appeals to less than 10% of their audience 08.12.2023 Dev Stream 08.12.2023
Gameplay - M.U.L.E. Ability to pet Molly It's a UI thing, the interact button is reserved for depositing, adding pets to that would be confusing 08.12.2023 Dev Stream 08.12.2023
Gameplay - M.U.L.E. Molly upgrades & attachments No, in all likelyhood Molly is going to stay in her present state 08.12.2023 Dev Stream 08.12.2023
Miscellaneous - DLC More cosmetic DLCs They'd like to at some point, but no active designing is being done right now 08.12.2023 Dev Stream 08.12.2023
Perks - Beastmaster Dwarven cosmetics on Steeve The game can be silly, but Steeve cosmetics are too silly for the game's direction 08.12.2023 Dev Stream 08.12.2023
Space Rig - Shooting Range Shooting range No plans, the conclusion they arrived to is that it wouldn't be much faster or more convenient than loading into a mission 08.12.2023 Dev Stream 08.12.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves Gilded moustache It's an ambition rather than a plan; would be cool as part of another Supporter DLC or something like that 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves Make the Steam Awards hat available Probably not; Jacob will make the case for it again if DRG wins Labor of Love this year 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
Creatures Mammal- or non-bug-type enemies Probably not in DRG, but possibly in Rogue Core 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
Creatures - Variants Fire-breathing Praetorian They're hesitant to add more variants of existing monsters if they don't require different tactics from the players 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
Drinks - On Missions Broken fridge pod to find during missions They aren't going to add that because that sounds like a fun idea and they don't do fun (not that kind) 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
Equipment - Gunner Shoot zipline up and swing on it like Tarzan No plans for more traversal modes; it's a cool idea, but might not fit Gunner's intentionally lower mobility 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
Features - Economy Trade resources between players Trade economy requires a lot of really complex systems to support it, so they decided against that early on 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
Gameplay Add meth So many good ideas from the community today 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
Gameplay Option to have jet boots spawn in every mission No, that would make traversal tools more or less obsolete and remove a lot of what makes the classes distinct 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
Gameplay - Minerals Add iron No plans (but there was a prototype resource like that back when they were creating crafting minerals) 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
Miscellaneous - Lore In-depth lore (story DLC, comic book, etc.) For the game they deliberately leave the lore vague to foster speculation 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
Missions New locations or new objectives It's their hope that Season 5 has at least one of those two; there's a prototype of a new mission type 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
Perks "It's a Bug Thing" auto-collects lootbug drops Absolutely not 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
Perks Perk system rework It's no secret that the system could use a rework, a lot of people want that internally, but there are no active plans 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
Progression Progress carry-over from DRG to RC Not planned; part of why they made RC into its own thing was to get away from all the systems they'd have to support were it a part of DRG 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
Progression - Matrix Cores Reduce the OC grind for new players No plans to adjust that right now 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
UI Option to have jet boot UI always on-screen That's a good idea, might go a long way to solve the issue of forgetting you have jet boots at all 01.12.2023 Dev Stream 01.12.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves More armors It's something they're looking at for Season 5 30.11.2023 Dev Stream 30.11.2023
Creatures More bug enemies in future seasons Hopefully the Stalker will be refined enough by Season 5 to add it in 30.11.2023 Dev Stream 30.11.2023
Equipment - Overclocks New overclocks and weapons for Season 5 There's an overclock planned for every primary in the works for Season 5, but a "no" for new weapons 30.11.2023 Dev Stream 30.11.2023
Features - Modding Mods as official additions They're not against the concept of it, but noone's working on that either; maybe some time later 30.11.2023 Dev Stream 30.11.2023
Gameplay Health running out for downed players like in L4D That would probably be a bit more hardcore than what the game is intended to be 30.11.2023 Dev Stream 30.11.2023
Gameplay - Hazard Level Hazard levels higher than 5 Probably not going to happen - not enough population on haz 5; we can use mods though 30.11.2023 Dev Stream 30.11.2023
Miscellaneous - Franchise Crossover with other games and shows That's definitely an idea, someone should do something about that 30.11.2023 Dev Stream 30.11.2023
Perks - Points A way to spend unused perk points There are certainly parts of the perk system that could be reworked; maybe it'll get looked at for spring maintenance, but no guarantees 30.11.2023 Dev Stream 30.11.2023
Progression - Endgame Endgame stuff Deep Dives are endgame content, as is Hazard 5 (only 4 were planned originally), they'd rather avoid making content for a small minority 30.11.2023 Dev Stream 30.11.2023
Space Rig - Activities Remove the glare on the Jetty Boot machine There are some lens flare settings in the November maintenance update, those might help 30.11.2023 Dev Stream 30.11.2023
Technical - Crossplay Crossplay Sorry, the answer on that is still "no" 30.11.2023 Dev Stream 30.11.2023
UI - Missions Show minerals in pouch in "no HUD" mode That sounds like a classic case of "have your HUD and eat it too" (not very likely to happen, maybe there's a mod for it) 30.11.2023 Dev Stream 30.11.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves Cigar cosmetic for Gunner They can't have both alcohol and smoking without bumping the age rating up 24.11.2023 Dev Stream 24.11.2023
Classes - 5th Class Add Bardin Goreksson from Vermintide If we want to play as Bardin Goreksson, they know of a game where we can do exactly that, and that game is Vermintide 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Classes - 5th Class More classes Nope 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves Comically tall Doug Dimmadome hat That would be good 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves Old-school diver helmet There's kind of something like that if the Supporter DLC (Skeleton Crew helmet) 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves Release no-longer-available cosmetics Probably not, no plans (and the streamer armor is still available, just only to streamers) 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves Release streamer armor for consoles It's not possible on consoles; Steam can have non-public DLCs that cost $0, consoles don't allow that kind of shenanigans 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Creatures Bigger glyphids No, due to the procedural nature of the caves, anything bigger than a bulk looks weird when turning a sharp corner 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Creatures Stingtail swarm That would be a fun mod 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Creatures - Bosses Mactera boss An early idea of that eventually evolved into the Glyphid Menace we have today 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Equipment - Gunner Button to stop on a zipline Would be kind of cool 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Equipment - Gunner Deploy ziplines in meters instead of shots Probably not, this might overcomplicate the tool and lead to a situation where you can't use a zipline because not enough meters are left 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Equipment - Melee Melee weapons No, DRG is a first-person shooter, not a first-person sworder 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Equipment - Overclocks Boomstick OC that allows using the grappling hook Sounds cool, but would probably clash with too many existing mechanics 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Features Proximity voice chat It's a bit too hardcore a feature, it doesn't quite fit the vision for DRG; besides, people use Discord for chatting anyway 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Features - Team Size Raids for 6-8 players Cool idea, but very likely not going to happen due to technical reasons 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Gameplay - Hazard Level Hazard 6 No plans, Hazard 5 population is roughly 10% of the players, and probably less than half of them would want to move to Hazard 6 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Miscellaneous - Achievements More achievements No plans, the game is currently at 69 achievements, and GSG is basically just a room full of 12-year-olds 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Miscellaneous - Lore More lore about Karl It's not folklore if it only comes from one source; in some sense it's not their story to tell 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Perks Perk system rework They're aware the perk system needs a rework; not a focus right now, but hopefully one day 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Progression Beer that boosts cargo crate spawn rate Aaron thinks it's a neat idea 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Technical - Crossplay Crossplay A popular questions, and no, it's not going to happen - that'd be a ton of work 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Technical - Rendering Ray-tracing No plans to implement that, it would change lighting too much, and lighting is an essential element of DRG 17.11.2023 Dev Stream 17.11.2023
Classes - Voice Lines Voice lines in other languages Not from GSG officially, but maybe some fan projects could fill that niche 16.11.2023 Dev Stream 16.11.2023
Cosmetics - Equipment Skins for gadgets Very, very unlikely - noone runs around with their Zipline Launcher out, so it's always more worthwhile to add skins for other equipment 16.11.2023 Dev Stream 16.11.2023
Creatures - Neutral Kissable lootbugs We can already pat them, but someone could make a mod with a smooching sound of something 16.11.2023 Dev Stream 16.11.2023
Creatures - Neutral Lootbugs pouncing at the laser pointer like cats That's a good idea for a mod 16.11.2023 Dev Stream 16.11.2023
Equipment Laser thrower Shard Diffractor, DRAK and the laser pointer could all be argued to be laser throwers 16.11.2023 Dev Stream 16.11.2023
Equipment More weaponry Not a hard "no", just not on the priority list right now, definitely not going to happen in Season 5 16.11.2023 Dev Stream 16.11.2023
Equipment - Flares Flare upgrades They rolled all of those into the base flare because they created competing priorities for new players, and not in a good way 16.11.2023 Dev Stream 16.11.2023
Gameplay Sprint by default Not a native feature, as decided by the game director 16.11.2023 Dev Stream 16.11.2023
Miscellaneous Bioengineer real lootbugs They can neither confirm nor deny the existence of such a program 16.11.2023 Dev Stream 16.11.2023
Miscellaneous Dwarf v-tuber avatars They hope to have a dedicated streaming room in the new office, maybe they'll have cameras pointed at them; avatars are also an option 16.11.2023 Dev Stream 16.11.2023
Technical - Assets Release models for fan animations No plans, although it's still possible to extract them; they have an unofficial "official" STL collection on Thingiverse 16.11.2023 Dev Stream 16.11.2023
Progression Ability to pick any of the earned rank titles That's a good QoL idea, we should leave it in any of the channels for game suggestions 16.11.2023 Dev Stream 16.11.2023
Progression - Seasons Turn off seasons before pass level 100 They set it to 100 and it's going to stay there; being tired of Rockpox is understandable, but there's still the rest of the game to play 16.11.2023 Dev Stream 16.11.2023
Space Rig - Activities Kiss homies in the Abyss bar No, but we could kiss our homies in a real-life bar and pretend that we're dwarves 16.11.2023 Dev Stream 16.11.2023
Gameplay Utilize lithopage tools to counter other hazards Every single day Jacob asks for one very specific use for the vacuum, and the answer is "no" every day 10.11.2023 Dev Stream 10.11.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves Shirtless hairy dwarf cosmetics First we'd need to convince the game director for that to happen 09.11.2023 Dev Stream 09.11.2023
Missions - Industrial Sabotage Variations with less stations for Sabotage They made a conscious choice to not have 0 or 1 hackable generators, it makes the mission flow lopsided and doesn't make sense 09.11.2023 Dev Stream 09.11.2023
Perks New perks A full rework of the system is more likely than new perks, but for now - no plans 09.11.2023 Dev Stream 09.11.2023
Creatures Nerf Bulk Detonators No, get better at the game 03.11.2023 Dev Stream 03.11.2023
Equipment - Flares Shorter flare cooldown for solo Probably not, they don't really want solo and co-op to be different in that sense 03.11.2023 Dev Stream 03.11.2023
Equipment - Flares Upgradable flares They used to be at one point; players bought weapon upgrades over flare upgrades, which made their games unintentionally darker 03.11.2023 Dev Stream 03.11.2023
Gameplay Spray dwarves with foam as protection against rockpox They're looking at ways to make Rockpox less annoying for the November maintenance update, hopefully it'll address that 03.11.2023 Dev Stream 03.11.2023
Miscellaneous Thanksgiving or Shark Week events "No" to Thanksgiving since it doesn't mean anything outside the US, "no" to Shark Week because they are not the Discovery Channel 03.11.2023 Dev Stream 03.11.2023
Miscellaneous - Franchise Collab with other indie games If they did, it wouldn't be in-game content, it'd stay on social media and stuff like that 03.11.2023 Dev Stream 03.11.2023
Missions Raid for Mission Control's room Good heavens, no, what an inappropriate thing to suggest 03.11.2023 Dev Stream 03.11.2023
Perks New perks or cosmetics for perk points They're aware the perk system is wonky and they'd like to fix it at some point, but it's not the focus right now 03.11.2023 Dev Stream 03.11.2023
Space Rig Airlock so that people stop trying to clip outside They will still do that even if an airlock is available, breaking the rules is the fun 03.11.2023 Dev Stream 03.11.2023
Equipment - Engineer Auto-built turrets No; DRG is actually a psy-op to teach lazy millenials the value of hard work 02.11.2023 Dev Stream 02.11.2023
Features - Streaming Twitch emotes That requires affiliate status with Twitch, which they don't have 02.11.2023 Dev Stream 02.11.2023
Miscellaneous - Franchise Collabs with other games They're talking about some stuff, but it's not going to be in-game content either way 02.11.2023 Dev Stream 02.11.2023
Soundtrack DRG OST on Apple Music They're aware of the demand, they need to get in contact with a company that handles it 02.11.2023 Dev Stream 02.11.2023
Technical - Crossplay Crossplay Probably nerer going to happen 02.11.2023 Dev Stream 02.11.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves More free armor cosmetics That's planned, they're cooking something; not sure if it'll go into Season 5 or a later update 27.10.2023 Dev Stream 27.10.2023
Cosmetics - Equipment Color the drillls to match the armor Would be cool; it's not off the table, but the table it's on is in another room 27.10.2023 Dev Stream 27.10.2023
Cosmetics - Equipment Neurotoxin grenade skin, a can of surströmming Definitely coming next Season; it's actually the default look in the Swedish version of DRG 27.10.2023 Dev Stream 27.10.2023
Drinks Holiday-themed beers Aaron really likes eggnog IRL 27.10.2023 Dev Stream 27.10.2023
Equipment - Overclocks Overclocks affecting how the weapon looks Would be awesome, but an OC should do so for every framework, so they're looking at hundreds of models to modify, which is too many 27.10.2023 Dev Stream 27.10.2023
Features - Modding Add mods to vanilla DRG It's a matter of someone finding the time to sit down and add them; it's not something they plan for 27.10.2023 Dev Stream 27.10.2023
Gameplay - M.U.L.E. Animation for depositing large objects into Molly It's always been such an instant action that it might be weird to change that now; maybe they could make it a "mash A&D" minigame 27.10.2023 Dev Stream 27.10.2023
Miscellaneous - Franchise DRG show or mini-series They'd have to think about this, having a bad show for your IP is worse than having none 27.10.2023 Dev Stream 27.10.2023
Miscellaneous - Franchise Real-life DRG beer & liquor The short of it is, selling alcohol internationally is really complicated; plus, none of them know how it works 27.10.2023 Dev Stream 27.10.2023
Miscellaneous - Merchandise Steeve plushie or dwarf plushie They're still researching options for storefronts since ForFansByFans shut down 27.10.2023 Dev Stream 27.10.2023
Missions New dwarves or missions or weapons No new dwarves; new mission is probably on the list relatively high; guns are possibly further ahead in the future 27.10.2023 Dev Stream 27.10.2023
Progression More control for cosmetics from Cargo Crates Nah, no plans; they discussed an option to narrow it down to a specific season, but no concrete decision 27.10.2023 Dev Stream 27.10.2023
Soundtrack Journey of the Prospector on Spotify They want to do it, it's just not at the top of their to-do list 27.10.2023 Dev Stream 27.10.2023
Technical - Crossplay Crossplay for the Steam version TL;DR: not planned, a lot of work 27.10.2023 Dev Stream 27.10.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves Gilded moustaches & sideburns That'd be crazy, but probably noone's looking at that at the moment 26.10.2023 Dev Stream 26.10.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves Pacific-Rim-themed helmet What would that look like? 26.10.2023 Dev Stream 26.10.2023

Progression Higher spawn rate for Cargo Crates Probably not planned 26.10.2023 Dev Stream 26.10.2023
Space Rig A way to skip the forging cutscene No plans currently, but there's a mod for that 26.10.2023 Dev Stream 26.10.2023
Technical - Crossplay PS/XBox/Steam crossplay Would be cool, but it's a big task that would hold them back from releasing anything new for a long time 26.10.2023 Dev Stream 26.10.2023
Classes - Gender Dwarfettes For DRG - almost a 100% chance of not happening, for Rogue Core - still up in the air 20.10.2023 Dev Stream 20.10.2023

Biomes New biome based on the Huuli Hoarder They're looking at biomes for Season 5, but not specifically Huuli-Hoarder-based (what would that even look like?) 19.10.2023 Dev Stream 19.10.2023
Biomes Sponge biome A bouncy biome sounds hella fun 19.10.2023 Dev Stream 19.10.2023
Classes - 5th Class New dwarves or new guns No new dwarves, but maybe new guns 19.10.2023 Dev Stream 19.10.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves Cigar cosmetic for Gunner Unlikely, the Gunner doesn't have it in the actual game because of age ratings 19.10.2023 Dev Stream 19.10.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves More outfits in the store (not event-based) Very likely at some point 19.10.2023 Dev Stream 19.10.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves Pirate hats They're surprised they don't have any yet, seems like an oversight 19.10.2023 Dev Stream 19.10.2023

Miscellaneous - Tutorial 30% chance for a Bulk Detonator in the tutorial As funny as it might be, it wouldn't be in the spirit of the tutotial 19.10.2023 Dev Stream 19.10.2023
Missions New mission type (or Deep-Dive-exclusive) Probably not re: Deep Dives, a new regular mission is one of the candidates for Season 5 19.10.2023 Dev Stream 19.10.2023
Missions - Deep Dives Mission type exclusive to Deep Dives Probably not, Deep Dives are supposed to be just a longer set of regular missions 19.10.2023 Dev Stream 19.10.2023
Perks - Beastmaster Steeve cosmetics They've said "no" to that in the past 19.10.2023 Dev Stream 19.10.2023
Technical Cross-save Quite unlikely; we can move the save files manually between XBox and MS Store, but their QA hates it and it we goof it up we're on our own 19.10.2023 Dev Stream 19.10.2023
Technical - Crossplay XBox/PlayStation crossplay No plans 19.10.2023 Dev Stream 19.10.2023

UI Categories/sorting for the wardrobe Yeah, the wardrobe is cluttered, this game has too many hats 19.10.2023 Dev Stream 19.10.2023
UI Chat function on XBox We can plug in a physical keyboard, although not sure how it's activated 19.10.2023 Dev Stream 19.10.2023
UI - Quick Message Emote like in TF2 Not a thing we should expect from this game, they value the rich nature of the V button, emotes could dilute that 19.10.2023 Dev Stream 19.10.2023
Biomes More biomes It's one of the things they're looking into for Season 5 (no specific plans, no promises it'll be there) 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Biomes - Appearance Biome variation depending on depth It's more likely that a lower depth will be occupied by a different biome than a version of an existing biome 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Classes - 5th Class 5th class No, absolutely not 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Classes - 5th Class 6th class Now we're talking 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves Armor like the dwarf is stuck in a wooden barrel That's a good idea, hopefully someone at GSG is listening so they can add this 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Cosmetics - Equipment More weapons Maybe? it's not front-and-center right now, and they won't add same-y guns just for the sake of having more guns 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Creatures New biome-specific bugs If they ever decided to add a new biome, they'd certainly consider some bugs specific to it 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Creatures Underground enemies Nothing in the works right now; they had a prototype of a Rockpox sandshark variant for Season 4, but it was scrapped because it sucked 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Creatures - Bosses Big Glyphid mama non-dreadnought boss File it under "would be cool, nobody's gotten around to it yet" 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Creatures - Bosses New dreadnoughts It's in the very big pile of things they think would be kickass but haven't found the time for; not likely for Season 5 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Creatures - Humanoid Humanoid non-player entities Probably not in Deep Rock Galactic; not off the table for Rogue Core 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Equipment New traversal tools, e.g. physics-based grappling hook No, traversal tools build most of the class identity (also, the grappling hook is physics-based, it's just that the physics are made-up) 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Equipment - Overclocks OC for M1000 for bonus damage after a 360 mid-air If there's one thing that DRG is missing, it's incentives to have MLG moments and a system for bugs to feel shame after being 360'd 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Features Watch past missions from any perspective There are all kinds of recording software for that, we don't need DRG to do that (plus the procedural nature of DRG caves is an obstacle) 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Features - Competitive PvP, even though it goes against the game Never going to happen, play another game for that 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Features - Modding Implement mods into the base game It's happened before with the angle meter of the drills, but it's not usually something they do 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Miscellaneous - Lore Expand DRG lore Indirectly, yes - but there probably won't ever be a complete lore codex for the world of DRG 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Miscellaneous - Merchandise DRG cookbook with beer and sandwich recipes Sounds more like a licensed merch made by fans, that's a lot of work and they're busy playing video games 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Missions Mission based on the Starship Troopers mod You can just play that mod (they love it so much they wouldn't dare copy it) 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023
Space Rig Selectable tune in the jukebox Mikkel responded to that with a "no" once 13.10.2023 Dev Stream 13.10.2023

Cosmetics - Dwarves Sombrero hat Maybe? 12.10.2023 Dev Stream 12.10.2023

Equipment BFG9000 in DRG The Fat Boy is sort of kind of there? 12.10.2023 Dev Stream 12.10.2023

Equipment - Overclocks More overclocks Yes, there's a bunch they're considering for Season 5 12.10.2023 Dev Stream 12.10.2023

Miscellaneous - Franchise Medieval DRG with actual mules Definitely don't hold your breath 12.10.2023 Dev Stream 12.10.2023

Miscellaneous - Merchandise Lego Deep Rock Galactic Lego hasn't approached them about it, but you also have to be pretty huge to even get on Lego's radar 12.10.2023 Dev Stream 12.10.2023
Missions - Deep Dives Deep Dives as deep as in Rogue Core Unlikely; RC takes place so deep it's a different biome, plus it's thematically distinct 12.10.2023 Dev Stream 12.10.2023
Missions - Mutators New anomalies and warning They talked about adding a few more, although no hard plans for now; within the realm of possibility for Season 5 12.10.2023 Dev Stream 12.10.2023
Missions - Mutators Stingtail Cluster mutator That sounds like a great idea 12.10.2023 Dev Stream 12.10.2023
Space Rig - Shooting Range Weapon-testing firing range No plans, they made a decision to not add a firing range 12.10.2023 Dev Stream 12.10.2023
Technical Account system for cross-platform save transfer No plans, and Axel can't even think of a number for how much money he'd have to be paid to make that happen 12.10.2023 Dev Stream 12.10.2023
Technical - Accessibility Beer that highlights minerals for colorblind players Do the existing colorblind options not help at all? 12.10.2023 Dev Stream 12.10.2023
UI Explicit stat changes for mods and OCs No plans; the nitty-gritty exact changes are not needed for the majority of players and should stay on external sources like a wiki 12.10.2023 Dev Stream 12.10.2023
UI - Missions Less obstructive visual effect for goo and Rockpox Them obstructing the field of view is kind of the point 12.10.2023 Dev Stream 12.10.2023
Biomes New cave assets from Rogue Core in DRG They might move some things the other way around if it makes sense, like DRG biomes or enemies being introduced to RC 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Classes - 5th Class New class Not going to happen, they've gone way beyond the point of no return to add a whole new class to DRG 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Creatures Changes to the Stingtail Those are planned for the maintenance update, they'll need to discuss it with the designer 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Creatures Rammer from the board game added to DRG While the concept is cool for the board game, they tried it for the video game a long time ago, and the result was the Shellback 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Creatures Rival activity in DRG or Rogue Core Might happen if it makes sense, if they have some mechanics they want to play around with and the Rivals fit those mechanics 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Creatures - Bosses More dreadnought types There are no concrete plans, but there are some designs 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Creatures - Neutral More friendly critters None planned, but they're always cool 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Equipment New guns or new biomes for Season 5 As valuable as they might be, new guns definitely aren't happening in Season 5 (and probably not in Season 6 either) 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Equipment Weapon rework for maintenance updates Not the main purpose of those updates, but possible; full-on reworks like with the Subata are less likely, smaller tweaks are more likely 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Equipment - Overclocks New overclocks Some new OCs are past the "initial prototype" phase; they plan to add some in Season 5 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Gameplay - Bosco Work on solo mode for Season 5 They talked about changing how Bosco can provide light, but so far there haven't been concrete plans 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Miscellaneous Hire modders to help with content creation Mods are awesome and inspiring, but modding should be approached as a hobby; modders are not a workforce to be exploited 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Miscellaneous New infographic with stats They like those too, it's a matter of someone actually sitting down, gathering the data and making the infographic 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Miscellaneous - Franchise Collaboration with another IP They had one with Powerwash Simulator; DRG has a very distinct style, not sure Mario would look very good when put into the game 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Missions New mission type They've been prototyping something more free-form; no promises for Season 5, but it's one of the things on the table 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Perks Update the perk system for Season 5 They haven't made a list of what's going into Season 5 yet, but a perk overhaul is one of the candidates for that list 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Progression - Seasons Option to choose which season to play until Season 5 The goal of the maintenance update is to mitigate some of the biggest pains, not add new mechanics at the risk of falling behind schedule 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Progression - Seasons Seasonless period Seasonless is off the table, as there are new players coming in; they're looking for a solution for old players, like an opt-out feature 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Space Rig Lootbug pet system No; is this the petting zoo suggestion again? 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Technical QoL changes in the maintenance updates Might be included 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
UI - Load-Outs More load-out slots They keep adding them and we keep asking for more (maybe?) 06.10.2023 Dev Stream 06.10.2023
Biomes New biome It's something they're looking at, but not a guarantee 29.09.2023 Dev Stream 29.09.2023
Biomes New biome, less complex than the last ones If the caves are too complex, we may like a simpler game where blocks have to be put through the right-sized holes, and work up from that 29.09.2023 Dev Stream 29.09.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves Plague Doctor with the hat inheriting paintjob color They could pester one of their artists about it, although if the item doesn't already do that it might be intentional 29.09.2023 Dev Stream 29.09.2023
Creatures - Bosses 4th dreadnought Yes, they're going to be implementing one of those white dogs with crusty shit in its eyes 29.09.2023 Dev Stream 29.09.2023
Equipment New weapons Maybe at some point in the future; they have some overclocks coming up, but they've been coming up for a few seasons by now 29.09.2023 Dev Stream 29.09.2023
Perks More perks They agree the perk system is weird in some spots and it's on their to-do list, but they're working on other stuff right now 29.09.2023 Dev Stream 29.09.2023
Soundtrack New soundtrack No plans; already, there's a ton of mods for alternate soundtrack 29.09.2023 Dev Stream 29.09.2023
Space Rig - Shooting Range Firing range The idea was scrapped, they didn't feel like they could make something that we couldn't have by just launching a mission 29.09.2023 Dev Stream 29.09.2023
Technical - Crossplay Crossplay They'd like that to happen, but it's too big an endeavor for the bandwidth they currently have, and it'd also be a huge strain on their QA 29.09.2023 Dev Stream 29.09.2023
Biomes Candy biome That would be fun; if there's someone out there who's a skilled modder and also unemployed, make that 28.09.2023 Dev Stream 28.09.2023
Biomes New biomes They don't know if it's slated for the next update, and if they knew they wouldn't tell 28.09.2023 Dev Stream 28.09.2023
Biomes - Water Aquatic biome with its own Glyphid species Sounds cool, but it's too much of a technical undertaking (also it's in the stream FAQ which we should've read) 28.09.2023 Dev Stream 28.09.2023
Classes - 5th Class Engine class They were working on a steam locomotive engine, but an unfortunate boiler explosion put a stop to that 28.09.2023 Dev Stream 28.09.2023

Miscellaneous Visible dwarf feet in first person There's a mod for that 28.09.2023 Dev Stream 28.09.2023

Space Rig - Shooting Range Some sort of shooting range Not happening due to tech reasons 28.09.2023 Dev Stream 28.09.2023

Creatures Add Rammer from the DRG board game No, the Shellback already fills the niche of a disruptive enemy that bonks players around by charging into them 21.09.2023 Dev Stream 21.09.2023
Creatures Enemies larger than the Bulk Detonator Creatures larger than that start looking very weird when traversing and taking the same angle as the ground 21.09.2023 Dev Stream 21.09.2023

Equipment - Flares Flare upgrades Very unlikely; the flare UI in the equipment menu is a vestigial organ from pre-1.0 builds, they'll remove it if it starts hurting a lot 14.09.2023 Dev Stream 14.09.2023
Features - Competitive Competitive PvP mission type Not going to happen, PvP's not their thing 14.09.2023 Dev Stream 14.09.2023

Cosmetics - Dwarves More Mk armors Not unlikely 17.08.2023 Dev Stream 17.08.2023

Gameplay Auto-sprint setting The game director says "no" 17.08.2023 Dev Stream 17.08.2023

Classes - 5th Class Medic class The mesh of the dwarf has, like, a trillion bones; their physiology is unknowable, and that's why there are no dwarven medics 03.08.2023 Dev Stream 03.08.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves Add real eyes to the characters It's probably all the PTSD the dwarves have that gives them that blank stare 03.08.2023 Dev Stream 03.08.2023

Cosmetics - Dwarves Scars as cosmetics They thought of that, as well as prosthetics too, but their cosmetic system is old and needs to be changed to support things like these 03.08.2023 Dev Stream 03.08.2023
Equipment - Driller Fix Explosive Roload on Subata when low on ammo They fixed it for Season 4, but the fix made Dreadnoughts take damage through armor, so it was reverted; might have to wait until Season 5 03.08.2023 Dev Stream 03.08.2023
Gameplay Add sandwiches It's one of the popular suggestions 03.08.2023 Dev Stream 03.08.2023
Gameplay Make all ranged enemies target the player's friends They probably could and they probably won't 03.08.2023 Dev Stream 03.08.2023
Gameplay Penalty for repairing something that's under attack They do that with the drilldozer (it's repair speed is lower when taking damage), but not anywhere else 03.08.2023 Dev Stream 03.08.2023
Gameplay Victory poses as emotes during the missions Too hard; besides, they want to keep the mission gameplay more serious than silly 03.08.2023 Dev Stream 03.08.2023
Missions - Escort Duty Add damage to mining lasers on Doretta's canisters No plans; when they started out with Escort Duty, they specifically didn't want that, but maybe they'll revisit that at some point 03.08.2023 Dev Stream 03.08.2023

Progression - Seasons Increase spawn chance for the Corruptor and jet boots Jet boots are roughly 1-in-6 chance, which is not the same as "you get it every 6th mission"; probability is weird 06.07.2023 Dev Stream 06.07.2023
Soundtrack New music track on Spotify The person who's handling that is on vacation, might take a couple of weeks 06.07.2023 Dev Stream 06.07.2023

Technical - Water Physics Water No chance, no 06.07.2023 Dev Stream 06.07.2023

Gameplay - Minerals Use for Error Cubes Who knows? 29.06.2023 Dev Stream 29.06.2023
Miscellaneous - Lore Lore update They are reluctant to expand too much on the lore, it's cool that we make up our own headcanons 29.06.2023 Dev Stream 29.06.2023
Technical - Crossplay Cross-platform No plans, that requires restructuring their network code; plus, for a small studio there are benefits to not releasing simultaneously 29.06.2023 Dev Stream 29.06.2023
UI - Missions HUD Steeve indicator Maybe that's a good idea 29.06.2023 Dev Stream 29.06.2023

Drinks A way to erase the Randoweisser effect They're aware it might have some trolling potential; maybe a sink to pour out beer could solve it 22.06.2023 Dev Stream 22.06.2023
Equipment - Overclocks Change stats on overclocks every month or so "Every month" is a bit optimistic, they don't have anyone doing weapon balance full-time; besides, number tweaks alone won't go very far 22.06.2023 Dev Stream 22.06.2023
Equipment - Overclocks Buff weapon overclocks If there's anything wrong with them, maybe; no concrete plans for specific buffs 22.06.2023 Dev Stream 22.06.2023
Equipment - Overclocks Visual changes to guns from overclocks They thought about it, but as soon as they start, it's just going to generate more work for each overclock they might want to add 22.06.2023 Dev Stream 22.06.2023
Equipment - Scout Swing on Scout's grapple They probably aren't going to change how it works 22.06.2023 Dev Stream 22.06.2023

Technical Presets for graphics quality No plans beyond what's already there; you can only sacrifice so much visual fidelity before it starts hurting the impression of the game 22.06.2023 Dev Stream 22.06.2023
Biomes - Appearance Upgrade older biomes They're not going to add more stuff to older biomes, but they discuss touching up the visuals; simpler biomes also have better readability 15.06.2023 Dev Stream 15.06.2023
Biomes - Water Water- or underwater-related biomes No plans, Azure Weald is kind of their take on a water-related biome 15.06.2023 Dev Stream 15.06.2023
Cosmetics - Dwarves Barrel armor How much would we pay? 15.06.2023 Dev Stream 15.06.2023

Cosmetics - Machinery M.U.L.E. skins Different approaches have been discussed a little bit, but it always gets pushed down the priority list by other things 15.06.2023 Dev Stream 15.06.2023
Creatures More Rival- or Rockpox-themed enemies No plans 15.06.2023 Dev Stream 15.06.2023
Creatures - Variants More variants for Praetorians, Goo Bombers, etc. A fire praetorian was prototyped and cut due to being too similar to both the regular Praetorian and the OG Dreadnought 15.06.2023 Dev Stream 15.06.2023
Creatures - Variants Rockpox Bulk Detonator It was considered; it's not a bad idea, but it would have minimal difference in how to play against it: stay far away and shoot weak points 15.06.2023 Dev Stream 15.06.2023
Equipment - Driller Make C4 do double damage to Scout [exasperated sigh followed by the explanation of the meme's origin] 15.06.2023 Dev Stream 15.06.2023
Gameplay Disallow friendly fire They don't allow friendly fire, they tune friendly fire; the main reason it's there is to force the player to be aware of teammates 15.06.2023 Dev Stream 15.06.2023
Gameplay - Hazard Level More difficulty levels No plans; not only is the potential audience small, it's also very hard to scale hazard 5 up in a fair way and keep performance reasonable 15.06.2023 Dev Stream 15.06.2023
Perks Do something with perks No concrete plans, but they'll definitely look at them at some future point 15.06.2023 Dev Stream 15.06.2023
Perks - Beastmaster DRG hard-hat for Steeve Too unrealistic, breaks immersion (seriously though, they do try to keep a certain tone balance by confining silliness to the Space Rig) 15.06.2023 Dev Stream 15.06.2023
Perks - Points New perks or uses for perk points Eventually, yes 15.06.2023 Dev Stream 15.06.2023
Space Rig Add a button to call the elevator to the Memorial Hall Having to wait is an effect of which state the elevator starts when the Rig is loaded; maybe flipping that state would solve the problem 15.06.2023 Dev Stream 15.06.2023
