Capcom apologizes and promises more betas coming
If you didn’t know or noticed, Street Fighter V is in beta, but not everything went so smoothly.
Game servers were overloaded and because of that a lot of users had problems with logging in the game as others that logged in had problems with connectivity.
“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.”
At least three more Street Fighter V betas are coming, including betas for European and Asian players.
“To all of the players that participated and supported us through this initial phase, we cannot thank you enough. We understand how frustrating it is to be so close to playing the game you are excited for, and to not have it working. The whole team here is very disappointed that we were unable to deliver a proper beta experience this time. Thank you so much for your continued support, and we promise that we will have a better experience for you with the future betas.”
