Arc System Works has announced that they have delayed the upcoming fighting game Guilty Gear Strive from its previously-scheduled 9 April 2021 release date to 11 June 2021. It will be available for PS5, PS4, PC via Steam and arcades.
After getting feedback from the recent demo, the developer has decided to delay the game “polish some aspects of the game, such as the online lobbies and the server’s stability.” Guilty Gear Strive Deluxe and Ultimate Editions, which offer three days early access for those who purchase them, will now launch on 8 June 2021.
Check out Arc System Works’ full statement below (via Twitter):
We have made the tough decision to move the release date of Guilty Gear: Strive (previously planned for April 9, 2021) to June 11, 2021.
Since we have received valuable feedback after the recent open beta test, we would like to make the most of this opportunity to provide the best game possible. We need extra time to polish some aspects of the game, such as the online lobbies and the server’s stability.
We believe it best to use the extra time to improve the game’s quality and provide a better experience to all our players.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
