Arc System Works’ fighter Guilty Gear -Strive- delayed until June 11 to improve the game’s quality and provide a better experience for players
Sorry to come bearing bad news, fighting game fans. Arc System Works today announced that the launch of Guilty Gear -Strive- has been delayed.
The upcoming one-on-one fighter was slated to release for the PS4 and PS5 next month. However, Arc System Works has decided to push the game’s launch back to June 11 to “improve the game’s quality and provide a better experience” to all their players.
You can find the full statement below:
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.
Guilty Gear -Strive- Development Team”
