Dragon Ball FighterZ beta

Originally players were going to be able to register for the upcoming closed beta of Dragon Ball FighterZ, but publisher Bandai Namco announced this evening that it wouldn’t be the case. The Japanese publisher announced that they’re planning to “bolster [their] background systems to ensure that the closed beta registration and selection process can accept the volume of anticipated sign-ups,” and doing so will cause a delay of nearly one month. Instead of signing up tomorrow, July 26, players will instead be able to register on August 22, 2017. The beta for the heavily anticipated Arc System Works fighting game will then officially take place from September 16-18.

Here’s the full announcement via Bandai Namco’s Tumblr:

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. would like to thank all its fans for their tremendous support for DRAGON BALL FighterZ. We recently announced at EVO 2017 that the closed beta sign-ups for DRAGON BALL FighterZ would begin on July 26, 2017; due to the volume of excitement and enthusiasm surrounding this announcement, we have decided to expand the capacity of the closed beta in an effort to enable more players to participate in the program. 

We are also working to bolster our background systems to ensure that the closed beta registration and selection process can accept the volume of anticipated sign-ups. 

However, these efforts will necessitate a slight delay for the closed beta sign-up date, which will move to August 22, 2017 with the official start of the DRAGON BALL FighterZ Closed Beta officially commencing from September 16 -18. We would like to thank all of our fans for their patience and understanding; we look forward to sharing more news about the DRAGON BALL FighterZ Closed Beta program soon. Thank you.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is set to release next year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
