Lethal Company dev teases update plans, Version 50 content


What you need to know

  • Lethal Company was one of 2023’s biggest indie games, and has remained one of the most popular multiplayer PC games you can play in 2024.
  • Its developer, Zeekerss, has posted that they “could release” the upcoming Version 50 update for the game now, but want it to be “really substantial” and are holding it back to add more to it.
  • Zeekerss added that “I really want content updates to Lethal Company to feel like I broke into an alien zoo and released all the animals,” teasing the tone and scope of the Version 50 patch and what it’ll add to the co-op horror roguelike.
  • These posts coincide with the start of the first-ever sale for Lethal Company on Steam. Until February 15, it’s available for 30% off. 

Exactly one month after Lethal Company developer Zeekerss made sizable balance changes and added challenge moons to the popular indie co-op horror roguelike with the Version 47 update, they’ve taken to social media to talk about their plans for the upcoming highly anticipated Version 50 patch. Though Zeekerss “could release it now,” they’re choosing to keep it back to add more to it first — and may develop future updates like this, as well.

“I’m distracted by my life right now, but I have Version 50 slowly cooking. I could release it now, but I want it to be really substantial,” they wrote on X (Twitter). “I’m starting to think it may be better for all updates to be bigger and less frequent.” Then, in a follow-up post: “I really want content updates to Lethal Company to feel like I broke into an alien zoo and released all the animals.”
