Street Fighter V Beta experiencing issues throughout the weekend.
Gamers who had pre-ordered a copy of Street Fighter V expecting to participate in the Beta Test found that they were unable to access the game. As a result, Capcom temporarily deactivated the servers in an attempt to repair ongoing issues. Capcom decided that problem will be best resolved by switching the servers off for an extended period, and issued an apology on their Twitter account. Capcom will inform players of the “date” when the servers switch back on, implying that the beta issues may not be resolved quickly.
“We apologize for the ongoing issues that users have been experiencing with the Street Fighter 5 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”.
Capcom deactivated the Street Fighter V Beta servers not much more than an hour after the game build first went live. In a rapid response to a growing number of reports from users explaining they could not access the beta build, Capcom took test servers down and notified fans across social media. At the time of going to press, the game is inaccessible, though Capcom expects the matter will be resolved very soon. The Street Fighter V Beta, which allows players to access an early test build of the game, launched around 6pm Pacific on Thursday (2am Friday UK time). Thirty minutes into the test, the publisher wrote on Twitter that it was “aware that users are having issues logging in”.
The beta was scheduled to end this Tuesday, July 28, but that is no longer the case. The official Street Fighter Twitter account has posted a message which reads, “For those wondering, we will be extending the beta period to make up for the issues we’ve been experiencing”. There’s not yet any word on how much additional time players will be given once the problems have been resolved.
