Another game in 2021 has been delayed as developer Arc System Works has announced Guilty Gear: Strive needs a bit more time.
The game was going to launch on April 9 but will now release on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC on June 11. Those who get the Deluxe or Ultimate Edition will still get the game three days early starting on June 8. The team says that feedback received during the recent beta has led to them needing a bit more time to polish the game up. You can read their 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.
