Street Fighter 5 Beta Extended as Server Trouble Continues

/ 5 years ago


The Street Fighter 5 beta that currently runs as a PlayStation 4 exclusive has shown us very clearly how important beta tests of games are, both the closed and open versions. One can plan and have a lot of great ideas, but it isn’t until you put it out to a real world test that you know how well you did your job. Other recent examples also include all the trouble WB has with the latest Batman game.

Capcom announced yesterday on their Twitter account that the beta would be down all day as they continue to face server issues. The beta launched on July 23rd, but users experienced trouble right from the start and they lasted throughout the weekend where Capcom repeatedly reset and took servers offline and set them back up again in an attempt to get everything running.

The beta was officially scheduled to end tomorrow, Tuesday the 28th, but that won’t happen. A new message posted on Twitter reads: “For those wondering, we will be extending the beta period to make up for the issues we’ve been experiencing.” There hasn’t been any word yet how much it will be extended, but we can assume it will continue at least to the point where they narrow down where the bug is located and then add the original 5-day time on top of that.

While this first beta is PlayStation 4 only, future beta versions are planned for the PC too. Those will commence at an unspecified time later this year.
