Update: Ignore the rants below, Harada has just confirmed that Tekken 7 PC version will launch on PC as well via Steam.
Original Story: Until now, Tekken 7: Fated Retribution has only been confirmed for Sony’s Playstation 4 with no sign of Tekken 7 Xbox One or PC versions.
While Mark Julio confirmed that Playstation 4 exclusivity of the game was inaccurate, there was no sign of Tekken 7 Xbox One version until now.
Tekken 7 Xbox One Version Release Date Announced at E3 2016
During Microsoft’s E3 2016 media briefing, Bandai Namco Entertainment came forward to announced Tekken 7 for Xbox One. While this goes in line with an early report detailing that Tekken 7 will eventually launch for Xbox One and Microsoft Windows, there is still no sign of a PC version as of now.
During Microsoft’s E3 2016 press conference, Michael Murray and Katsuhiro Harada took the stage and showed a gameplay demo of Tekken 7 Xbox One.
The gameplay demo that we saw showed a brawl between Akuma from Street Fighter universe and Heihachi Mishima. Akuma confronted Heihachi about a promise that he made to Kazuya’s mother Kazumi. While this has been confirmed for a very long time, we still do not know what ties Kazumi has with Akuma and how he fits into this universe. We have speculated a lot, to read up more, you can head over to the post!
As for gameplay mechanics, there was nothing that we did not already know including rage arts, cancel, and other moves. Katsuhiro Harada also announced that Tekken Tag Tournament II will be available as a free download for all Xbox Live Gold Members throughout this week.

Tekken 7 Xbox One version is scheduled to release sometime in early 2017 – no concrete release date was provided. Hopefully, the game will launch on the same release date for Playstation 4.
