“In regards to the Rollback Netcode implementation, we made an announcement earlier this year that a Beta Test will be carried out on Steam around Spring. However, to further improve and stabilize the experience of the feature, we have decided to postpone the timing of the test,” reads a statement from the dev team.
“We apologize for the delay, but the team here is committed to delivering the feature in its best shape, so we hope that players would wait a little longer for further updates regarding timings of the beta test.”
Dragon Ball FighterZ, which first launched back in January 2018, has been able to maintain a long life as well as retain a healthy competitive community. This is not only due to the popularity of the DBZ branding itself but also due to Arc System Works meticulous effort in crafting an exciting and engaging fighter that appeals to Dragon Ball fans and fighting game fans who are yet to see a single episode. The title has survived the coming and going of multiple releases from “bigger” fight franchises.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is available now on PlayStation, PC, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch platforms.
