SNK Delays Rollback Netcode Update for Samurai Shodown

SNK Corporation has announced a delay in the release of the rollback netcode update for Samurai Shodown (2019). The update, which was initially scheduled for September, has been pushed back to an unspecified date.

In a statement, SNK apologized for the delay and expressed their commitment to providing players with the highest quality experience. To ensure the netcode update meets their standards, the company plans to hold a second community beta test on Steam in October. Further details regarding the test will be announced at a later time.

While the new release window for the rollback netcode update has not been revealed, SNK stated that it will be announced once the results of the community beta test have been evaluated. The company expressed gratitude for the support and enthusiasm of players, acknowledging their anticipation for the new features.

Samurai Shodown is currently available on various platforms including Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store). However, it is worth noting that the Switch version will not receive the rollback netcode update.

SNK's decision to delay the update showcases their dedication to delivering a seamless online experience for all players. Despite the setback, the company remains committed to ensuring the update meets the highest standards of quality. With the community beta test in the works, fans can look forward to a more enjoyable Samurai Shodown experience in the future.
