Gamers will have to wait a little longer for Guilty Gear Strive.
It has been announced that Guilty Gear Strive has been delayed once again. The game was set to release on April 9th, but will now drop on June 11th. The announcement was made on Twitter, where it was stated that the game was delayed to give the team behind it some extra time to polish the title. This is the second time that the game has been delayed, though the delay was not as severe this time. The first delay was due to COVID-19.
"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," Arc System Works stated on Twitter. "We need extra time to polish some aspects of the game, such as the online lobbies and the server's stability.
"We believe it is best to use the extra time to improve the game's quality and provide a better experience to all our players.
"Thank you for you patience and understanding."
The game's beta was met with positive feedback, though there were some issues that made it hard for some players to get into matches. This seems to be the main reason for the delay. The game's netcode was praised, with players stating that it allowed matches with little to no lag.
Guilty Gear Strive is the latest entry in the legendary fighting series. Strive will feature 15 characters, though the game will have a Season Pass that will add 5 new characters along with two new stages. The game will feature a mix of 2D and 3D cell-shaded graphics, as well as a head banging high-octane soundtrack. The game will feature the conclusion to the story that has been built up for the past 20 years.
Guilty Gear Strive will release for PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 in June.
