Capcom released a blog post early this week in order to provide a status update on Street Fighter V. Within the post, Capcom employee Haunts, addressed concerns of many fans of the title. The major key points that were addressed were the Ibuki release, reports of input delay, and the famous rage quitting issue.
Fans were anticipating the release of the next DLC character, Ibuki, to be released in the last week of May. However, as that time approached, the new character was not available without any word from Capcom. The change in schedule was done in order to provide the best experience possible for the player -base, so they decided to post pone the release until the last week of June instead.
“To reiterate, we are currently aiming for the last week of June to release both Ibuki and the Cinematic Story Mode. We apologize to our players all over the globe for not communicating this change to our release schedule sooner. While we planned to talk about the timing of her release this week, it’s clear that we should have been more upfront with everyone on the shift in timing.”
The developmental purpose was to keep quality at the forefront of their development, and informed fans that additional delays may happen in the future. However, they will aim to be more transparent with this information and let fans know of any impending delays.
Additionally, Haunt addressed two in game issues that has been causing displeasure to fans of the title: Reports of Input Delay and the Rage Quitting Issue.
“We have heard reports of input delay and have shared it with the development team. They are currently looking into the reports and we will let you know as soon as we find out more.”
The rage quitting issue which has been a huge concern for the player base has seen some improvement. In their latest solution to the issue, Capcom has reduced the issue by 60%. However, they are not satisfied with their results and are working to improve their efforts even further.
