Enduring a number of issues since it began on July 23, Capcom has announced that the Street Fighter V beta on PlayStation 4 has been postponed until a later date.
Apologizing to those who participated in this first beta test, Capcom explains that, 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.”
A new date for the beta wasn’t given, just that it will be postponed until “we believe the experience is going to be a positive one for players.”
Furthermore, Capcom says Street Fighter V will have at least three full betas prior to launch in Spring 2016, with first beta participants set to receive a special in-game incentive:
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.
Additionally, we are working on a worthwhile in-game incentive for the players that participated in the first beta test. While we can’t confirm specifics just yet, we will have more details on this in the coming weeks.
Capcom will also be providing those in Europe and Asia with an in-game incentive to apologize for the beta being limited to North America on Friday and Saturday.
Finally, Capcom says, “Thank you so much for your continued support, and we promise that we will have a better experience for you with the future betas.”
