Netcode patch to be released for @Tekken 7 this week
We have to applaud Bandai Namco’s Tekken team for their swiftness in addressing the netcode issues tied to Tekken 7. The game has been available to the public for less than a week yet our enjoyment of the experience remains their highest priority.

On Monday of this week, the Tekken team released a statement acknowledging the reports of issues related to the online experience. A second announcement revealed today states that they plan to release patches for all available versions of the game in an effort to address these problems, starting with the PC version today.
See below for the notes from eu.tekken.com:
The TEKKEN team is actively working on improving the Tekken 7 game experience for everybody. This is currently our top priority and we appreciate your patience. We will be releasing a number of patches in the coming days:
June 7th: We’re releasing a patch for the PC version to improve security and update Denuvo. It’s important for us to note that this patch was developed concurrently and did not push back the patches addressing online issues (see below).
End of the week: a PlayStation 4 patch to address online stability including matchmaking issues, and bug fixes, will be released. We’ll have more detailed info to share soon about this patch.
Next week: a similar patch to the PS4 version will be released on PC and Xbox One to address online stability and bug fixes.
Stay tuned to our official channels for more info shortly, and as always, we’ll keep monitoring the situation and collecting your feedback about Tekken 7. Thank you for playing!
While PC and Xbox One players may be understandably miffed at the prospect of enduring these online grievances for another week, prioritizing the PS4 is an understandable decision when you consider that the Playstations have been Tekken’s tournament standard for years. Regardless, the team evidently doesn’t plan to keep such players waiting for long, which again speaks to the swiftness of their response to community feedback.
We’ll update you again when we learn more information. Until then, keep following this blog and the other pages below to stay updated on Tekken 7!
