Street Fighter V Developer Update Announced, September Update Previewed

Street Fighter V has been released but Capcom still has lots of work to do on the game. Capcom has been supporting the game with new updates which brings bug fixes and more. However, this time Capcom has announced a Street Fighter V developer update.

While this new Street Fighter V developer update does not add much to the game,  it primarily focuses on Rage Quitters.

The update will help to reduce the amount of players who disconnect before the match concludes. The update will implemented during Server maintenance, that will be performed on 8/16 from 1PM PT to 7PM PT.

Rage Quitting Penalty

We are aware of the Rage Quitting issue, and this update will continue our efforts toward resolving it. We will make a second update to the existing Rage Quitting system with stricter guidelines for players who disconnect before the match is over. Players who are penalized will lose League Points and be locked out of online matching for a set time. The update will be implemented after the maintenance on 8/16.

Since the initial Rage Quitting system rollout, we have seen a rapid decrease in rage quitting players, and we believe that this new update will reduce that number even further. That being said, we’re still working on implementing a new, more robust system that will address the issue more completely by early next year.

However, that is not all as Capcom has also previewed the September update for Street Fighter V. The September update includes :

  • VS CPU Option
  • Daily Targets
    • Daily challenges with Fight Money rewards!
  • Fighter Profile Updates!
  • Free colors for Season Pass holders
    • Colors 3-10 for Default and Battle costumes of the 6 DLC characters
  • Premium costumes will now include colors!
    • Colors 3-10 of the purchased premium costume
  • Color bundles available for purchase via FM or Real Money
    • All 22 Characters’ Default & Story Costumes Color Pack 3-10
  • And more to be announced!

Capcom also announced Double Fight Money that will take place on September 2nd to September 4th. Street Fighter V is a fighting game developed by Capcom for Microsoft Windows, Linux and PlayStation 4.
