What you need to comprehend is that game developement is much easier to deal with on pc , since you don’t have to get the avail of Sony or Microsoft each time you do an update to your build . Furthermore Sony and Microsoft ( for the console part of Microsoft ) don’t approve Early Access on their platforms ( or has a very few exceptions to this as they started to understand it may be profitable for them, not so long ago ) So that leaves the Devs with PC to have their Early Access ( so that people can playtest their game for them as they MAY* have not enough QA ) So this means PC players are the Beta-Testers for the game , that will get out with far less bugs for console players thanks to the PC players that played it and reported the bugs . Yes console state of Conan Exiles is a mess with the dashboarding issues and the Out of Memory bug , And Funcom has put extra effort and investment by adding a team of people to those core consoles issues . The Fact that Console patches has to go through a certification process from Sony and Playstation and that it went throught with all those critical bugs unseen , makes me think that the Hardware of old consoles ( so not ps5 and Xbox series X ) is just not powerfull enough to handle Conan Exiles in 2021 ( for sure it could handle it when CE released , but the game has had so many updates of content that even on a high end pc Exiles land makes my hybrid cooled ( fan + watercooling ) graphics card to ~ 90°c where Siptah doesn’t have this effect on my GPU ) This means that Extra care from the developers in order to make the game more optimized for consoles ( which means lowering at the maximum possible the consumption of ressources ( Ram / gpu / processor ) . And unfortunately this can take a pretty long time to deal with , even more when it’s not your strengh ( Funcom games have a past of non optimizing the memory usage )
All in all , your theory of Pc gamers complaining , making the developement for console slower is a non argument because you assume that it’s the same team working on the PC version , that will work after on the consoles version … well I beleive it’s not the case and they have a dedicated team actually working on the console version of the game at the same time. But they have all those console specific bugs to solve before even thinking of bringing the game to parity with Pc … What would be the point for you to Get Siptah if you still crash 2 min after entering the game , or the games dashboards you to the menu ?
