Developer Arc System Works delayed the upcoming fighting game Guilty Gear Strive to June 11 on Wednesday. The game was previously set for release April 9.

"Since we have received valuable feedback after the recent Open Beta Test, we would like to make the most of this opportunity to provide the best game possible," reads the studio's announcement. It singles out online lobbies and server stability as particularly in need of improvement.

"We believe it best to use the extra time to improve the game's quality and provide a better experience to all our players," the team wrote.

This is the second time Arc System Works has delayed Guilty Gear Strive. In May 2020, the studio pushed the game into 2021, saying it would need the time to implement feedback from the game's closed beta test and to overcome new difficulties posed by work conditions in a COVID-19 pandemic-ravaged world.
