Tekken 8 May Debut Earlier Than We Thought

Bandai Namco has presented its latest financial results. On the occasion, the publisher referred to the release of the long-awaited Tekken 8.

During September's State of Play event, Bandai Namco officially presented the upcoming fighting game Tekken 8. Although the trailer released at the time (you'll watch it at the end of the post) offered a promising first look at the long-awaited game, there were still many unknowns about it - including its release date.

The lack of any information from the Japanese devs might have suggested that we would have to wait a long time for the official debut. Meanwhile, it turns out that it may be closer than we thought.

On the occasion of Bandai Namco's meeting with investors and discussion of its latest financial report, one of the company's representatives was asked whether the company plans to release game offering a "new experience" next year. The Japanese then revealed that Tekken 8 could debut in the next fiscal year, that is, between April 1, 2023 and the end of March 2024 (via Insider Gaming).

"In addition to the titles planned for fiscal 2022, we plan to release several major games in fiscal 2023 that will enable the players to enjoy the game longer and deeper. We are also developing Tekken 8 with the intention of releasing it in 2023 or later," was the answer.

Admittedly, this is still a rather wide window, as the game could just as well be released in early 2024. Nevertheless, we have finally received small - and positive - hints that shed more light on the situation (until now there was no mention of a release date at all). Will they turn out to be true? Let's hope so. In the meantime, we must be patient.

Recall that Tekken 8 is being developed on Unreal Engine 5. The game will be available on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

An introvert by nature. Since childhood, he felt a closer connection to humanism than to the sciences. Instead of exercises in maths, he preferred shutting himself up in his world and inventing new stories of his favorite anime – Dragon Ball. After years of study came a time of stagnation, which he preferred to call "searching for purpose." Looking out for destiny during the 58th screening of his beloved Die Hard, he decided – like John McCLane – to fight for a better future. He found the avenue to do this in Gamepressure. Since he's still a freshman in the newsroom, he doesn't have a target subject he wants to focus on yet. So, you can expect news about farming simulators, or the impact of Johnny Depp's trial on the future of Pirates of the Caribbean. If you ever hear that playing console games and watching movies is futile – remember this story
