Sony America has revealed that a patch for Quantic Dream’s Heavy Rain is on the horizon, confirming the update is in “the final stages of testing”.

Apparently, the patch will fix various freezing issues reported by owners of the critically acclaimed thriller. Writing in a post on the game’s official North American forum, a moderator posted the following:

“The latest news is that the game patch has now completed development and is currently in the final stages of testing. While a fixed release date is not currently available we are expecting the update to be released very soon."

As mentioned previously, this patch is not targeted purely at the issues reported in this thread but does address a range of minor issues which could be contributing factors. Given the small percentage of players affected by these issues and the difficulty that has been had in reproducing them here we’re optimistic that this patch resolves your problems but cannot guarantee that this will be the case.”
