You've waited years to get your hands on Street Fighter 5, it finally launches and you head online to show everyone else who's the best. Sadly, many of you did this overnight to find the game's servers fall down under the stress.
We are aware of the server issues that are affecting the online functionality of SFV, and are working towards a quick resolution.— SFV Server (@SFVServer) February 16, 2016
We have identified the issue that caused the servers to go down and we aim to have them back up momentarily. Thanks for your patience.— SFV Server (@SFVServer) February 16, 2016
The game's creator Yoshinori Ono has taken to Twitter this morning to apologise for the launch issues.
I apologize for troubling you with various things about SFV's server.Would you check @SFVServer,we're going to work hard and improve it.— Yoshinori Ono (@Yoshi_OnoChin) February 16, 2016
Thankfully things appear to be up and running now as many players across Europe head to stores to pick up the game.
