Capcom’s Street Fighter V has been released and is now available to be played on both the PS4 and PC platforms. Unfortunately while the trailers have shown a lot of promise, along with early reviews of the game, it seems that many Steam users are frustrated over the server issues that have been plaguing the PC version of the game.
So much so that many have left pretty negative reviews, giving the game a score of 6/10, which admittedly based on what we have read from the early reviews, should definitely be a lot higher. The game’s producer Yoshinori Ono has since acknowledged that the server issues are something they need to be working on.
In a tweet published online, Ono apologized for the issues. “My sincerest apologies again about SFV server situation. I think that we need to improve on this problem the most,” and also pointed gamers towards the @SFVServer Twitter account that deals with the game’s server status. According to what we are seeing, it seems that the servers aren’t 100% stable yet, but it looks like a lot of work has been done to get it back up where for the most part, it is still very playable.
We suppose it shouldn’t really be a surprise that server issues are affecting the game. After all with many games requiring an always-on connection, it is easy to see how servers can be overwhelmed, kind of like Blizzard’s Diablo 3 when it first launched and where players were encountering a host of issues. We expect that things will stabilize eventually, so in the meantime we suggest that you just remain patient.
