Arc System Works announced that their anime fighter Guilty Gear: Strive, will be delayed from it planned late 2021 release to a new early 2021 release window on PlayStation 4.
The announcement was followed with a statement from the company saying, “While our company’s staff and our business partners are putting in a sincere effort in dealing with changes due to the spread of COVID-19, every aspect of our development schedule has faced delays. In addition, we have decided to set up a schedule to further improve the quality of the game responding to everyone’s help and feedback from the recent closed beta test.:
The company than apologizes and hopes the new Guilty Gear title will satisfy all the fans.
Guilty Gear was initially released in 1998 as a 2D fighting game for hardcore fans of the genre. The series continued this approach in its design as well as excelling in creating a pretty metal and upbeat soundtrack for every title.
Currently, the newest title in the series was released in 2017 as Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2, which introduced two new playable characters and added a rebalancing update to the rest of the roster. Additionally, the updated game also released on PC and console simultaneously, which was a first for the series.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the development of Guilty Gear: Strive.
