Scheduled server maintenance on Street Fighter 5 Arcade Edition's release date

Servers will be down from 5:00 to 12:00 PST but are subject to change...

We are rapidly approaching Street Fighter 5 Arcade Edition's release date that is scheduled for January 16, 2018. This update will add a number of features to the game we've been playing for about two years now.

The first fighter of Season 3, Sakura, will become available on this day. Remember that she will be free to play until January 23rd. Think of this as a trial period for the character.

Being that this is the third season, there will also be a balance patch that makes adjustments to the entire cast. Tiers are sure to shift as a result of these changes. It might be a good idea to familiarize yourself with the patch notes.

There will be a few new modes like... well, the arcade mode. Fans have for sure noticed the absence of this mode. Each fighter will also be able to choose between one of two V-Triggers before the start of a match to help players better express themselves.

As you might expect, Capcom are going to require some time in order to get the servers ready. They've announced a period of time in which Street Fighter 5's servers will be down for this maintenance period.

The in-game notification tells us that the servers will be down from 5:00 to 12:00 PST (we assume this is A.M. to P.M.). For the East Coast, this is 8:00 to 3:00 EST. It's not uncommon for Capcom to finish the maintenance earlier than scheduled though so be on the lookout on January 16th.
