JUMP FOR IT: The Show 21 is reaching to resolve all crashes

Sony San Diego did release patch notes for Game Update 6, but they're about as short and to the point as any patch notes have ever been.


"This is a small update that fixes the missing skin textures, clipping helmets, and a crash in Road to the Show."

That's the extent of Game Update 6, according to developers at Sony San Diego, but the reason for the size discrepancy between PS4 and Xbox Series X|S isn't known.

MLB The Show 21 update also prompts restart of servers

On top of implementing the update itself for all platforms, MLB The Show 21 also went offline briefly when the update went live for a server restart.

It's not an uncommon practice, but shows again how much Sony San Diego is trying to resolve server struggles that have plagued the title since launch.

While things have definitely improved since the title released on Early Access and then to all players, but there's more work to be done as servers continue to fail.
