Street Fighter V server woes continue

Street Fighter V has launched around the world but those who were planning on playing with their friends online have a disappointment in store

Street Fighter V is out on PS4 and PC, and you can be sure it contains billions of hours of cell shaded smashing. But the launch has been far from smooth, especially if you were planning on playing online.

Server issues have been plaguing the game since it first went live on the 16th of February and while many of the problems were assumed to have been sorted in the hours since, players still can't connect to games. Capom producer Yoshinori Ono has apologised on Twitter and directs users to the dedicated page which provides constant service updates.

That SFV Server account has been very busy over the last 24 hours, keeping people in the loop on outages. As of a few hours ago, Battle Lounge was still experiencing issues as they're working to employ fixes on the fly, something which requires taking the servers completely offline from time to time.

It's not the kind of launch which Capcom was hoping for and early reviews have been mixed, focussing on the lack of content available at launch.
