Tekken 7 news Bandai Namco developing PC port; Console versions could release early 2016


If the rumors are proven to be true, fans waiting for Tekken 7 to hit the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will have to wait much longer.

This is because, as reports suggest, the console versions of Bandai Namco’s hit fighting game could be released to the two platforms by early 2016.

This was suggested by the publication GameNGuide, which reported that Bandai Namco is allegedly working to develop a port of the fighting game to PC. Because of that, it is possible that the publisher will release the versions for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the early months of 2016.

GameNGuide clarified, however, that there is still no confirmation of this rumor.

Christian Today, on the other hand, suggested that the arcade version could be released to the United States before this year ends. The website noted that the arcade version of Tekken 7 had already found its way to the US through tournaments.

The arcade version was already released in Bandai Namco’s home market in Japan, the Venture Capital Post added.

The game was also slated to make an appearance in this year’s Tokyo Game Show, the VC Post said.

The game’s producer Katsuhiro Harada was also reportedly going to make an important announcement during Bandai Namco’s appearance in the event.

However, the VC Post said, Tekken 7 was not among the games that the publisher showcased during TGS 2015.

Tekken 7 was unintentionally revealed by Harada after a video interview of him was leaked in July last year. In the video, Harada was talking about the capabilities of the Unreal Engine 4 and its effects on titles like Tekken 7.

“Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to easily bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire,” Gematsu quoted the producer as saying.

The video was eventually taken down, Crossmap reported, and no updates about the game have come from Bandai Namco since.
