Today is a sad day for Street Fighter fans worldwide as the whole Street Fighter V Beta, which was supposed to launch over the past weekend, has been called off.
How long, you ask? We may not be able to see it anytime until developers are able to create a positive experience for players.
The announcement reads as below:
Capcom offers its sincerest apologies to everyone who participated in this first beta test. While the purpose of a beta is to work out these type of issues, it was very clear that the issues we faced were more severe than we were prepared for. After three days of testing, while we were making progress and collecting valuable data, we felt the majority of players were not having a good experience, and the best course of action would be to take the servers offline for extended maintenance. We will be postponing our first beta phase until we believe the experience is going to be a positive one for players.
Capcom has said that beta participants who didn't managed to get in on the first beta can be assured their spots will still be reserved for future beta tests. At least Capcom is admitting the game isn't quite where it should be instead of rushing a buggy release.
