Street Fighter V beta taken down immediately after launch

first_imgIf you were hoping to launch into the beta of Street Fighter V this weekend, you were probably out of luck. After only an hour of being up and running, Capcom took the game servers offline after some bugs popped up, but hey, that’s exactly what a beta test is for, right?After a series of connectivity issues — mainly players not being able to log in — Capcom decided to take the game offline to try to work out the problems. The company posted a series of tweets addressing the issue.We are still working on a fix, and are currently resetting the server and implementing changes each half hour. Thanks for your patience.— Street Fighter (@StreetFighter) July 24, 2015As of now, the game has been sporadically accessible. The initial login issue seems to have been taken care of, but players are still having problems logging in, from random bugs, to the servers being at max capacity. The servers were indefinitely down for “extended maintenance,” but now, at least, you can access the beta if you’re lucky and manage to avoid any bugs. The issue even elicited Capcom’s own Yoshinori Oni, executive producer of the Street Fighter franchise, issued an apology to players via Twitter.I’m very apologetic towards players.I’m sorry that I don’t have enough ability about SFV beta.Plz give me chance for re-scheduling SFV beta.— Yoshinori Ono (@Yoshi_OnoChin) July 24, 2015 If you’re unlucky and can’t access the beta, but you live in one of the 13 cities that have a Six Flags theme park, you can head on over there to play the game in person. From now until August 30, the Street Fighter game will be making a tour of the various parks.last_img
