Boss Katsuhiro Harada has confirmed that two fan-requested features will appear in the upcoming fighting game. Following its announcement last year, little by little has begun to reveal more than what tekken 8 will have in the store. And while there’s still no word on when the next entry in the series will arrive, it’s starting to sound like everything fans have been hoping for and more.
In a recent series of interactions on Twitter, Harada responded to questions from fans about some of the features that tekken 8 will contain. For starters, Harada checked out that rollback netcode in the next Tekken title. For those unaware, rollback is often considered the best form of netcode for fighting games as it reduces the latency seen between players during online matches. Harada said that this announcement was not made with much celebration, as most fans are simply hoping to see a pushback in fighting titles these days.
I already installed it, and it already has what you want. The reason WHY we don’t make big announcements like crossplay is because even if we make big announcements, people like you will just say things like “waaaa! That’s normal in this day and age.”
So shut up and sit down.

Harada went on to say in a later articlethat tekken 8 will also end up containing crossplay, allowing those on the PlayStation and Xbox platforms (in addition to ) to play with each other. Although tekken 8 will be the first game to add crossplay in the series, Harada said he previously guaranteed this online component would be added to tekken 7. However, PlayStation and Xbox were less willing to collaborate with each other in this way, causing cross-play to be left out for the time being.
At the moment, tekken 8 It doesn’t have a well-defined release window, but it could end up arriving before the end of 2023. Regardless of what it releases, it will be playable around the world., and PC.
