Bandai Namco Shuts Down Tekken 7 Release Date Rumors

Tekken 7 release date

Yesterday, a product listing by a Swedish retailer started making rounds in the Tekken 7 community. According to Komplett, the new fighting installment is scheduled to hit shelves on February 12 for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Further inquiries made by fans also resulted in similar confirmations from the retailer, stating that the release date was provided by their supplier.

While fans danced in joy over the seemingly legitimate leak, Bandai Namco entered the discussion to confirm that the listing was inaccurate. Andreas Juliusson, product Manager of Tekken 7 and Bandai Namco in the North, stated that the false listing is based on a “limitation in their [Komplett] system which forces an upcoming product to have a release date in order to be published”.

He explicitly noted that Tekken 7 is not releasing on February 12, and that the retailer has been contacted to change the date to 2017 as a temporary placeholder. However, Juliusson promised that an official release date for the brawler is going to arrive later this month.

Tekken 7 is already available in Japanese arcades, having released so last year. A western release for home consoles is slated for the first quarter of 2017. It has been a long wait for fans on the other side of the globe. From the looks of it, we won’t have to wait much more to get our hands on the game.

Tekken 7 is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. This will be the first time that a major installment in the popular fighting franchise has graced the Windows platform.

For clarification, the marketing material may suggest that the PC version is exclusive to Windows 10 Store. That’s not true. The product page of the game is already listed on Steam Though, it’s unavailable for pre-order. It’s unlikely that Tekken 7 will release on the shoulders of the controversial Windows 10 Store.
