Street Fighter V Beta Crashes

Today the Street Fighter V beta opened with big connectivity issues forcing the developers to take the game down for extended maintenance.

Capcom Co. is off to a bumpy start with the Street Fighter V beta. Connectivity issues forced the game studio to put the game into extended maintenance.

On the Streetfighter Facebook page a statement says: "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 V beta servers are live in a limited way.

The latest update on Twitter says that the maintenance will take until 3am PST. 

Street Fighter V will be released exclusively for the Sony PlayStation 4 and PC. The new Street Fighter is powered by the Unreal Engine 4.

The game will be released on March 31, 2016. Pre-ordering the game gives buyers access to the beta. The first beta is scheduled for July 23 to July 28. This might get changed after the severe problems and delays.

There will be more beta events between now and the sales launch next Spring.

Birdie and Charlie Nash make their return to the Street Fighter universe, where they join classic characters like Ryu, Chun-Li, Cammy, and M. Bison. CapCom announced this week a new character named Necalli.
