Any fighting game looking to maintain a large, constantly-engaged audience needs to pay attention to the game’s online experience. After all, if you aren’t able to make it out to locals or majors, the main way for you to compete is against players around the world through online play.
The developers of Street Fighter 6 obviously paid attention to the online experience based on their decision to include rollback netcode with the game. Still, there are times where you might hop on for a few rounds of fighting only to find that you can’t connect to the internet.
While it’s always possible the internet issue is strictly on your end, it’s also helpful to know when the entire game itself is experiencing network issues. Here’s what to know about how and where you can check the Street Fighter 6 server status.
How to check the Street Fighter 6 server status
If you are unsure if online play is currently up and running in Street Fighter 6, the No. 1 place you should check for more details is the official Street Fighter Twitter account. In the time since the game has launched, this Twitter account has already tweeted updates acknowledging server problems, saying they are still working on the issues and confirming that the issues have been resolved.
Likewise, the Street Fighter Twitter account should be your go-to source for information about emergency server maintenance. Sometimes, Street Fighter 6’s servers will go down due to unscheduled maintenance in order to address a sudden problem that has arisen with the game’s netcode.
In these situations, the official Twitter account will announce the maintenance period by giving a start time and an estimated end time. Of course, maintenance could always run long, potentially leaving the Street Fighter 6 server status in flux. As a result, it’s important to stay tuned to the Street Fighter Twitter feed to see when they announce the completion of the emergency maintenance period.
