Guilty Gear: Strive delayed to June 11

No longer due out on April 9.

Guilty Gear: Strive

Arc System Works has delayed Guilty Gear: Strive from its previously planned April 9 release date to June 11. It will be available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam. An arcade version is also planned.

The Deluxe and Ultimate Editions, which include three days early access, will now be available on June 8.

Here is Arc System Works’ full message on the delay:

Dear customers,

We have made the tough decision to move the release date of Guilty Gear: Strive (previously planned for April 9, 2021) to June 11, 2021.

Since we have received valuable feedback after the recent open beta test, we would like to make the most of this opportunity to provide the best game possible. We need extra time to polish some aspects of the game, such as the online lobbies and the server’s stability.

We believe it best to use the extra time to improve the game’s quality and provide a better experience to all our players.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
