    No new missions?

    • There are a few that we’ve found on testlive. Both investigations are bugged. So that’s a nice feeling since they’re going live with it before adequate testing.

    It basically looks like they are just trying desperately to get back on the monthly schedule. Kudos to them if they can really manage to bring it out today without another repatch 🙂
