Tekken 7 online issues causing havoc but update confirmed

tekken 7 online issues

Bandai Namco Games has confirmed that it is prepping a new Tekken 7 update to address widespread online issues regarding the game’s ranked matches.

Gamers have been flocking to online message boards over the weekend following the launch of the fighting game sequel, with players unable to connect to ranked matches when presented with an opponent. PSU can vouch for these complaints, as we were unable to get into a match unless challenged, although the game itself was fine in terms of online performance, with no noticeable lag whatsoever.

However, speaking in an update, Namco is looking to fix these issues as well as offer a few tweaks to the ranked formula. Find out all the details below.

“We have received inquiries from a number of customers regarding situations in which they appear to have trouble matching with other players in Ranked Match. We are currently investigating the issue and plan to address the problem through an online update scheduled to modify the game spec and improve matching. Player and opponent character will no longer be displayed when searching for a match in Ranked Match.

More details regarding the update will be posted to the official Tekken site.

We apologize for any inconvenience which this may cause in the meantime.

The TEKKEN Team.”

Tekken 7 is available now for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. The game features a dedicated story mode that focuses on the long-running Mishima family feud, which sees Kazuya and Heihachi squaring up in one last, epic dust-up. In addition, the gameplay has also seen improvements, with the new Rage Arts system being implemented to spice things up and offer additional strategy within the core fisticuffs.
