Following a shaky start over the last few days, Capcom has made the decision to postpone the Street Fighter V beta test. Fans were excited for the first of three beta tests planned for the fighting sequel, but many were unable to log in to the PlayStation 4 game’s online servers to play it. As these problems arose, the beta became limited to North American players only, in an attempt to lessen the strain on the game’s servers. In a post on Capcom Unity, the developer addressed the ongoing issues:
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.
To be clear, this first beta test attempt will not count toward our previously announced beta test allotments. There will still be at least three full beta tests prior to the game’s launch. So for those in the Americas that feel disappointed that they were not able to experience their pre-order incentive, there will be plenty of opportunities prior to launch to experience the game.
Players affected by these issues will be offered in-game incentives to be confirmed at a later date. You can follow the official Street Fighter twitter account to see when the next attempt to launch the Street Fighter V beta test will be made.
