Dragon Ball FighterZ Updates Coming To Fix Online Issues Soon

Online problems in FighterZ should hopefully be resolved in the coming weeks.


Since its release in late January, Dragon Ball FighterZ has suffered from issues relating to online multiplayer. These are still present a month later, but Bandai Namco has reassured fans that it's both aware of the problems and working on updates to resolve them--the first of which should be out quite soon.

In a video discussing the upcoming roadmap for FigherZ patches, producer Tomoko Hiroki states, "We've heard all of your feedback since the release, and we're fully aware of the online issues that you're having, such as the matching in Ring Match or being disconnected from the lobby. We're aware of the situation, and keen to resolve them with all our might."

The first step toward fixing the problems will come before the end of February, when a new update is scheduled for release. Hiroki doesn't specify what this will do precisely or which of the problems it will address, nor was a specific release date provided--she only says it'll be out in "late February."

"Please bear in mind that this first patch might not fix everything at once," she continues. "Therefore, we're also planning to release another patch in mid-[to]-late March to gradually resolve the issue. Rest assured that we will not stop until the fix has been completed."

Hiroki also thanks fans for their support and teases upcoming announcements, which will presumably involve more character reveals. Just recently, Bandai Namco announced FighterZ's first two DLC characters will be Bardock and Broly.
