Im happy to see this, I was sceptic on it being true. But it is indeed true there working on the patch as siad. Here's a Link Soldier of Fortune: Payback Community
Hopefully they will release dedicated server software, allow people to view pings and add a chat function. Without these, the game is bound to die very quickly.
Yeah, Daves post got me excited too! Too bad he said in a week they would post a list of updates coming in the patch, but now its been over a month and still NOTHING! Probably because after all the bad reviews and negative publicity the game has got thanks to www.sofpayback.com their "offficial" fansite, the developers have relised that spending money making a patch, would probably just put them in even more debt than releasing this game has.
