Dead or Alive 6 Delay Pushes Release to March 1

Fighter was originally scheduled to launch on February 15


While it's not a huge one, Koei Tecmo announced a delay for Dead or Alive 6, which was originally set to launch on February 15. The latest entry in the series of fighters will now make its worldwide debut on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on March 1. 


The reason for the delay boils down to Team Ninja wanting to "further enhance and balance" the game. Here's what producer and director Yohei Shimbori had to say about it:


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 … I am truly sorry for the inconvenience caused by the release delay of DEAD OR ALIVE 6.”
