Bandai Namco launched its open beta for Dragon Ball FighterZ this weekend, and while feedback has been positive, it seems that it’s experienced some network issues. This may end up convincing the publisher to extend the open beta.

After numerous reports of network issues, Bandai Namco took to Facebook with a post thanking users for their feedback and informing them of server updates for Dragon Ball FighterZ. Without giving too many details, they simply stated that the issues are something that cannot be addressed in a short amount of time. Instead, they have noted their consideration to extend the beta to make up for lost time, but no dates have been given as of yet.

It seems that the network problems are unrelated to the game’s playability, as Bandai Namco stated that it will leave the current open beta online for players that can still log in and play.

There have been many instances of games launching for a full release in the past with massive server issues. Despite the frustration of missing valuable hours during a limited time beta, it’s better than experiencing them after launch. While waiting for the servers to be fixed, check out the recently announced fighters: Beerus and Hit.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is scheduled to launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on January 26.
