Dead Or Alive 6 Delayed, But Thankfully Not By A Lot

Thankfully the delay isn't a long one.


Fighting game Dead or Alive 6 won't launch on time. Developer Team Ninja and publisher Koei Tecmo announced today that the title has been delayed to March 1, 2019. It was previously scheduled to be released on February 15, so the delay is only a couple of weeks.

Producer and director Yohei Shimbori said in a statement that the team needed more time to focus on polishing "balance, gameplay, and expressivity."

"The title's development is already near complete; however, we would like to take more time to further polish its balance, gameplay, and expressivity," Shimbori said. "In return for your patience, we commit to bringing you the best Dead or Alive gaming experience.

"I am truly sorry for the inconvenience caused by the release delay of Dead or Alive 6."

Dead or Alive 6 will launch for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In other news, a tweet from the game's channel might be teasing that a demo for Dead or Alive 6 is in the works. The message states, "Perhaps the time has come to give our fighters a chance to TEST their skills." The mention of "test" might be in reference to a demo, but no official announcements have been made at this stage.
