While the highly realistic action-RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance managed to have quite the successful launch, the development team behind the title recently expressed that it wished for more time to polish the game before release. Following its bug-laden launch to the public, many have been wondering when Warhorse Studios would implement the fixes in the long-awaited Patch 1.3 for the title’s PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions, with studio co-founder Daniel Vávra now offering a release window of sorts.
As seen below in the tweet from Vávra, Kingdom Come: Deliverance‘s next patch has been delayed by a few days due to Warhorse still working out the kinks so as to not “rush it and cause more bugs.” That being said, though, the game director stated that the estimated time for Patch 1.3’s arrival will be sometime this week for PC players, with a few more days for certification needed on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
So guys, patch 1.3 was delayed few days as you may have noticed. We are still testing it as we dont want to rush it and cause more bugs. ETA is this week (ASAP) on PC + few days for certification on consoles. Patch will add Save&Quit and fix tons of quest related bugs.

According to Vávra, Kingdom Come: Deliverance‘s Patch 1.3 is set to provide some much-requested Save and Quit fixes, lockpick improvements, pickpocket refinements, as well as a plethora of bug fixes related to quests. Additionally, the rather troublesome torch quick equip problem will be rectified in the next update after Patch 1.2.5 unintentionally caused the bug to appear in the first place.
Taking all of this into consideration, while many Kingdom Come: Deliverance players will likely rejoice at Patch 1.3’s impending arrival, there may be a few fans of the more hardcore variety who will lament the forthcoming changes. After all, some have argued that making lockpicking and saving easier will detract from the title’s devotion to displaying as realistic a portrayal of medieval-era life as possible. Nevertheless, it’s best to reserve judgment on the next update until it has actually been implemented.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
