After Bandai Namco’s announcement that beta sign-ups for Dragon Ball FighterZ would begin July 26, the company has pushed that date back to August 22, according to a post on their Facebook page.
This was done to give more players a chance to sign up. The beta will run from September 16-18.
That’s a pretty short beta, so unless Bandai Namco pulls the classic, “We’re extending our beta!” announcement, it’s a good thing developer Arc System Works will have more time to make sure the connectivity is solid.
You can read the full statement from Bandai Namco below:
BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. would like to thank all its fans for their tremendous support for DRAGON BALL FighterZ. We recently announced at EVO 2017 that the closed beta sign-ups for DRAGON BALL FighterZ would begin on July 26, 2017; due to the volume of excitement and enthusiasm surrounding this announcement, we have decided to expand the capacity of the closed beta in an effort to enable more players to participate in the program.
We are also working to bolster our background systems to ensure that the closed beta registration and selection process can accept the volume of anticipated sign-ups. However, these efforts will necessitate a slight delay for the closed beta sign-up date, which will move to August 22, 2017 with the official start of the DRAGON BALL FighterZ Closed Beta officially commencing from September 16 -18.
We would like to thank all of our fans for their patience and understanding; we look forward to sharing more news about the DRAGON BALL FighterZ Closed Beta program soon. Thank you.
