Game company SNK Corporation has recently announced that the release window of upcoming video game The King of Fighters XV has been moved.
Instead of launching the game within this year, it has now moved to Q1 2022. Game Producer Yasayuki Oda has shared that the global pandemic is still going on and they wanted to make a high-quality product, they made the ultimate decision to delay the release.
Here is Oda’s massage:
There are many fans who are anticipating the release of KOF XV in 2021, however at this point in time, we unfortunately have to announce that KOF XV will now be launching within the 1st quarter of 2022.
The development timeline we set out to reach in the beginning has been affected by the ever-still rising cases of COVID-19 within Japan. We have made the ultimate decision in the end that the product’s quality must come first, and so with that decision comes an altered release window.
We sincerely ask for your kind patience and understanding as our development teams continue to work hard on KOF XV as we draw closer to its release.
Even with this message, we still do not know what the official platforms The King of Fighters XV will be available on.
