Escape from Tarkov

Tarkov Development Roadmap (0.12.7)

Content of the article: "Tarkov Development Roadmap (0.12.7)"

This is a roadmap to help everyone level-set on the current plans for the future-state of the game. As a project/program manager IRL, it was driving me crazy not being able to see everything laid out. I will continue to update this and post periodically with new information. The criteria for inclusion were as follows:

  1. It needed to be said by a BSG staff member.
  2. The most current information beats out past information.

I will make edits as they come across in replies.

For a video version of this roadmap, I created a quick < 5 minute video of everything described here: https://youtu.be/4bWUy9v7Bh8 . It is low quality but it was more for people who didn't want to read this whole post. I will spend more time rendering a new video tonight.


What to expect in 0.12.7

As with checking any source, it is important to look at all of the facts. Some of these content pieces were discussed in April/May but have not been mentioned since. I have labeled certain pieces with "unclear" and "old" if I was concerned about the validity of the information.

Patch notes should be released for 0.12.7 later this week (Nikita Russian Podcast, July 3, 2020, /u/lordwerneo translation)

Items

Flea Market Captcha

  • Planned (Nikita Podcast, May 8, 2020, translation by /u/Sdueq)

Conclusion

Special thanks to u/-Ryeng- who compiled the previous information and developed infrastructure towards collecting these insights.

This has been developed from every social media post, interview, and podcast from the Battle State Games team since April 15, 2020. Everything before that time was excluded. This was to prevent having to go back through countless years worth of content and gave a fresh look at development. Even keeping the original interview and podcasts became problematic.

This https://escapefromtarkov.gamepedia.com/Upcoming_Features was shared by /u/EternityZX9 . It provides a list of functions within the game that have been discussed. Based on my short review, it is out-of-date but is very interesting.

A plea to those interviewing Nikita. Please let him speak his entire thought when you ask a question. English is his second language and he takes a pause while thinking of how to respond. If you want questions to ask him, please let me know; I have a ton saved up and it could help keep the conversation on the roadmap and less on speculation.

If you are looking for a laugh after all that serious reading, this is what Tarkov did to me last night: https://clips.twitch.tv/CovertSleepySpiderHeyGirl
