We have been hearing about Bandai Namco’s Tekken X Street Fighter game for years, and by now many have probably assumed that it has been cancelled. Back in 2015, the developers assured that this was not the case, although in 2016 it was revealed that the game is no longer in active development.

This means that while it hasn’t been cancelled outright, it isn’t actively being worked on either. For those wondering about the status of the game, the game’s director Katsuhiro Harada revealed the reasons why they still have not gone ahead and launched it, and it basically is all about the timing.

In an interview with IGN, Harada was quoted as saying, “This has been said before, but Tekken x Street Fighter, the current timing is just that Capcom is putting a lot of effort into building up Street Fighter V, for us, we’re looking straight towards the release of Tekken 7, and we just decided that it wasn’t a very good idea to split both of those groups by adding a third title that covers both and to the same timing, so it’s more about the timing and waiting for the right chance for that.”

Based on this it sounds like it could be years before it even happens, but what do you guys think? Should they just cancel it already? Or is this still a title that you’re looking forward to?
