Dead or Alive 6 gets kicked back a couple of weeks

Dead or Alive 6, Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja’s anticipated new installment in the long-running fighting series, has officially been delayed by a whopping 2 weeks.

Originally scheduled to hit the PS4 and Xbox One on February 15th, 2019, Dead or Alive 6 is now scheduled to release on March 1st, 2019, worldwide, instead. Not a huge delay overall, but apparently important enough to get in a few last minute tweaks and updates.

See the announcement below.

KOEI TECMO America and Team NINJA announced today that DEAD OR ALIVE 6 will now be released worldwide on March 1, 2019. The change in date ? originally scheduled for a February 15, 2019 release ? is due to the developer?s desire to further enhance and balance the hotly-anticipated fighting game.

?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 gaming experience,? said Yohei Shimbori, the game?s Producer and Director. ?I am truly sorry for the inconvenience caused by the release delay of DEAD OR ALIVE 6.?
