Arc System Works have announced that Guilty Gear Strive, the upcoming fighting game coming to PS4, has been delayed from its original release window of late 2020 to early 2021. As you’d expect, the developers cite coronavirus, among other reasons, as the cause for the delay. The team made the announcement on Twitter.

In the statement from Takeshi Yamanaka, Guilty Gear Strive’s producer, Arc System Works reveal that while the team have been “putting in a sincere effort in dealing with the changes due to the spread of COVID-19, every aspect of our development schedule has faced delays”. Arc System Works also note that they’ve decided to set up a development schedule to improve the quality of the final product, based on the feedback and comments from the recent closed beta test.
While a delay is always a little disappointing, given the current situation it’s completely understandable and expected. From playing the closed beta test, Guilty Gear Strive looks promising anyway, even if I’m terrible at it, so some extra time in development should push the game to be even better. Are you looking forward to Guilty Gear Strive? Sound off in the comments.
