Road Fighter 6 was the spotlight of final week’s not-E3, with playable cubicles at Summer time Sport Fest drawing the most important crowds whereas the builders have been on-hand to reply questions and description specifics of the return of Capcom’s beloved sequence. Effectively, they have been answering some questions, whereas another areas nonetheless stay bizarrely unclear.
Crossplay has been a hope for the sport since its reveal – one thing supported on Road Fighter 5 throughout PC and PlayStation, with Road Fighter 6 promising to deliver Xbox gamers into the fold – and early reviews from showgoers including fighting game YouTuber Maximillian Dood seemingly confirmed it would be included.
When pushed for readability on the problem, nonetheless, Capcom was unwilling to substantiate the matter. “By way of crossplay we will have extra info and extra specifics to share down the road,” a Capcom consultant informed Eurogamer at Summer time Sport Fest. “It is one thing we really feel strongly about however when it comes to precise specifics that can come at a later time.”
Capcom offered an analogous line when it got here to rollback code, suggesting it’s going to return in an improved capability over what was seen in Road Fighter 5, although with regards to offering readability issues aren’t so clear. “As to the specifics of rollback, we need to present extra particulars on that at a later time,” we have been informed.
It is a weird state of affairs with Capcom reportedly unwilling or unable to correctly affirm or deny the characteristic (it is much more weird when in the identical interview the corporate spoke a couple of new period of transparency after the launch troubles Road Fighter 5 suffered).
“We have been capable of begin speaking extra overtly ranging from season 5 of Road Fighter 5,” director Takayuki Nakamura mentioned. “We needed to maintain up with that momentum, to proceed speaking transparently and overtly and to let gamers know that we’re right here to assist them and to ship what they need.” Nonetheless, you may’t blame Capcom for feeling burned after the substantial leaks that Road Fighter 6 has suffered.
Road Fighter 6 itself, in the meantime, is shaping up particulary nicely.
