Says series producer Yoshinori Ono
With the full launch of Street Fighter V: Champion Edition arriving tomorrow, excitement is in the air, especially for PC players that make use of Reddit user Altimar's netcode mod. Thankfully, Playstation fans won't be left out for long as series executive produce, Yoshinori Ono shared some good news on Twitter.
Ono stated in his tweet that "The team is working hard and wants to let SF5 players know that we'll be making adjustments to the game's netcode soon." Not only were Playstation 4 players unable to use Altimor's fix, but it also creates unbearable situations when these players face a PC player that make use of the mod.
Capcom's game has had netcode issues since its beta test and considering Street Fighter V launched on February 16, 2016, fans had almost entirely given up on a lasting solution ever arriving. It only took four years and a fan-made fix to push Capcom to concentrate on creating a permanent solution to the problem. No specific details were shared, but the producer did say that more information is on the way.
Street Fighter V: Champion Edition arrives on Friday, February 14, 2020. A server maintenance period is scheduled for February 13 at 10 AM PT, which will likely prepare the game for Champion Edition's launch.
