Publisher Bandai Namco and developer Arc System Works will release PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series versions of Dragon Ball FighterZ with rollback netcode implemented, the companies announced. A release date was not announced.
Rollback netcode will also come to the PC version of Dragon Ball FighterZ, while players who own the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version will be able to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series version free of charge.
Dragon Ball FighterZ producer Tomoko Hiroki also confirmed that this will be the final update for the game, and there are no additional characters or balance updates planned for release in the future.
“With the latest update released a few weeks ago, we believe Dragon Ball FighterZ has been tuned to its finest, so there are no future plans for new characters or balance adjustments,” Hiroki said on stage at EVO 2022. “But we have decided to implement rollback netcode to Dragon Ball FighterZ.”
Dragon Ball FighterZ is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam.

We are pleased to announce the upcoming release of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of Dragon Ball FighterZ with the rollback netcode system implemented.
As a result of our continuous testing to include the rollback system, it has been confirmed that the implementation can be applied to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, and we have officially been working on its production.
The PlayStation 4 version will be compatible with the upgrade program while the Xbox One version will be compatible with Smart Delivery.
We also expect the PC version to be updated so that users can choose either delay or the rollback netcode system. (*The recommended specs for the rollback system are expected to be higher than the current ones.)
It will take some time until the system is implemented, but we sincerely hope you will enjoy it as soon as possible.
More information will be released at a later date. Please wait for further details.
Appreciate your continued support of Dragon Ball FighterZ
