Likely to help prep for the big March update, Capcom will be taking the Street Fighter V servers offline for seven hours today from 10am PT/1pm ET until 5pm PT/8pm ET:
We will be shutting down the #SFV servers for routine maintenance starting today (3/22) from 10AM to 5PM PST. Appreciate your understanding.

Capcom hasn’t set a release date for the March update, but they detailed it a couple of weeks ago, saying it includes Challenge Mode, the in-game shop, an Online Rematch Option, Battle Lounge improvements, bug fixes, throw escape changes, balancing, and more. Additionally, Alex will be added to the in-game shop, where he can be purchased with Fight Money (“more than enough” is earned for him by completing all Character Story Mode content).
