Last night, fighting fans rejoiced as the beta for Street Fighter V went live around the world. However, it went downhill extremely fast. Many had connectivity issues all night. It got so bad that Capcom has now resorted to taking the entire beta offline. Capcom released this statement..
“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.”
No word yet on how light it will be offline. All we know is that it is down for “extended maintenance”.
