Capcom Working on Fix for Street Fighter V Beta Through “Extended Maintenance” Period, Ono is “Very Apologetic”

on July 24, 2015 3:17 PM

Last night the Street Fighter V beta went live and fell prey immediately to debilitating server issues. Despite the hilarious response from Twitter concerning the issue, it still hampers players who simply want to enjoy the highly anticipated beta.

Capcom, however, has been working non-stop to fix the connection problems and has updated players through Twitter, their official Capcom Unity page and today through email.

Those signed up for the beta received an email stating the following:

We apologize for the ongoing issues that users have been experiencing with the SFV beta test. In order to allow us to fix the issues as quickly as possible, we are going to initiate a period of extended maintenance, during which time the beta will be unavailable to all users. We will let you know the date on which the closed beta test will re-open once all problems have been fixed. We sincerely apologize for having to bring this unfortunate news to you. Thank you for your patience. Please stay tuned for further updates.

Street Fighter Producer Yoshinori Ono himself took to Twitter to apologize to fans concerning the beta issues:

With this level of diligence involved in fixing the servers, everything should hopefully be back online soon. And this will be an important lesson for Capcom as what to prevent when the full game drops in March 2016.
