Capcom has postponed the beta version of Street Fighter V because of serious server issues. The game maker initially released the first beta last week, but many gamers could not access the game because of technical issues. Capcom removed the game indefinitely until there is a solid fix.
Beta testers first reported issues last week, prompting the game maker to address the glitches. The system’s servers were overloaded, resulting in connectivity issues for gamers.

Capcom to offer a game incentive as a replacement
The beta version was a bonus feature for those who already preordered the game. Since the extra has been removed, Capcom will offer a viable replacement. As a bonus, there will be an in-game incentive for those who took part in the beta program. The incentive will also be offered to players in all the countries affected by the game glitch, including those who live in Europe and Asia.
The Capcom Unity blog elaborated on the situation, saying, “Capcom offers its sincerest apologies to everyone who participated in this first beta test. While the purpose of a beta is to work out these type of issues, it was very clear that the issues we faced were more severe than we were prepared for.”
Capcom has a few other betas before game release
The game maker added that even after three days of testing, they felt most players were not getting the full experience they deserved. Capcom plans to use this time for extended maintenance work. Since the official version of Street Fight V for PlayStation 4 and PC won’t be released until March 2016, the game maker has a few more chances with three separate betas. The test from last weekend will not be counted as one of those beta tests.
