People will have to wait a while longer for more multiplayer options in Dead or Alive 6. Team Ninja won’t have online lobbies available in March 2019 as originally planned. Instead, the new release window for Dead or Alive 6 lobbies is April 2019.
The announcement was made on the official Dead or Alive 6 Twitter account. The last patch for March 2019 will arrive on March 29, 2019 and be devoted to balancing, bug fixes, and bringing in more DLC. This means the second part of the 1.03 patch, which will add lobbies, will arrive in 1.03b in April 2019.
Here is the official tweet.
The update (Ver.1.03a) for 3/29 includes DLC add-ons, game balance adjustments & bug fixes.

At the moment, if someone wants to play online, the only option is a Ranked match. When online lobbies are added, it will mean more casual matches that doesn’t involve being pitted against strangers at or around your skill level will be available.
Dead or Alive 6 is immediately available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A free Core Fighters version is also available.
