Dead or Alive 6 Delayed Two Weeks

Team Ninja wants to polish up the game's balance and "expressivity."

Dead or Alive 6 has been delayed two weeks and will now be coming out worldwide on March 1, 2019.

Originally scheduled to come out on February 15, 2019, the developers apparently wanted to “further enhance and balance the hotly-anticipated fighting game,” according to a new press release. Dead or Alive 6 producer and director Yohei Shimbori also issued the following statement:

“The title’s development is already near complete; however, we would like to take more time to further polish its balance, gameplay, and expressivity. In return for your patience, we commit to bringing you the best Dead or Alive game experience.”

Dead or Alive 6 is the latest in the long-running fighting game from Team Ninja. Running on a new engine, Dead or Alive 6 adds battle damage to its characters similar to the recent Soulcalibur games. There was some mention of this entry being less sexualized than previous games, but that's not really a high bar all things considered.

Dead or Alive 6 is still scheduled to come out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. A demo for the next Dead or Alive was teased earlier this weekend on Twitter, but there’s been no word on that since. For more updates on the fighting game, including demo dates, keep checking our Dead or Alive 6 guide.
