Originally set to release this April, Arc System Works has announced that Guilty Gear -Strive- has been delayed to June 11, 2021. The delay was made to give time for the development team to further polish the game.
Regarding the delay, the developers said:
We have made the tough decision to move the release date of “Guilty Gear -Strive-” (previously planned for April 9, 2021) to June 11, 2021.
Since we have received valuable feedback after the recent Open Beta test, we would like to make the most of this opportunity to provide the best game possible. We need extra time to polish some aspects of the game, such as online lobbies and the server’s stability.
We believe it best to use the extra time to improve the game’s quality and provide a better experience to all our players.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
