CFN update, balance changes, and next Season 2 DLC character release delayed - success of recent beta test has Capcom looking into another

Capcom has just released another Capcom Unity blog post, this time sharing details on the current state of Street Fighter 5's upcoming content.


As many know, Capcom is currently working on improving the Capcom Fighters Network, making it more robust for an overall better user experience. The blog notes that the first PC beta test was successful and has helped the company make more optimizations.

"We are happy to announce the test has allowed us to make further adjustments to optimize the new CFN," the blog reads. "We know you’re all very eager for the new CFN but we also want to ensure it meets all of our expectations before it officially launches.

"In order to help us get the new CFN to where it needs to be, we are looking into conducting an additional Beta Test soon. In case you missed what the new CFN entails, check out our previous blogpost here."

Originally, the next set of balance changes and the latest season 2 DLC character were scheduled for release at the end of April alongside the CFN update. Since they were designed under the new CFN infrastructure and the CFN isn't quite ready yet, this means we will be seeing a delay in the release of the aforementioned content.

Much like the first beta test, the next one will allow current and new players to participate for free. It will feature all of the current playable characters, as well as the next DLC fighter, whose identity will be revealed soon. More information on the next beta test is expected in the coming weeks.

Capcom also makes mention of more, currently unannounced content that is set for the end of April.
