AVICII Invector

There was an initial expectation of Invector news as it had been teased over the past few weeks but nothing was shown as part of the event. Later however in their official Discord Gary referenced this stating "So we teased some invector news over the past few weeks - and there IS SOME, and you should be VERY EXCITED if youre an invector fan. Unfortunately the assets and updates we were preparing just weren't quite ready in time, and we don't like half ass-ing things! We gave the news every chance possible to slot in today and had carved a lovely avicii shaped hole in the direct, but without the right parts sliding in, we couldnt unleash it. It's coming, you'll love it - we're sorry it didn't make it in time - but it'll be worth the wait" So who knows maybe there is indeed a VR or next-gen update on the way? We'll have to wait and see.
