During Koei Tecmo’s February 26, 2019 Dead or Alive 6 launch live stream, the company noted that the Lobby Match feature would not be available on-disc or as part of the initial download. Instead, it would be added as part of a free patch update. Now, we know that update will be arriving later in March 2019 and the mode will not be a part of the day one patch.
This means, at launch, the one way to play Dead or Alive 6 online against other people is to use the Ranked Match option. These are available starting on March 1, 2019, and downloading the day one patch will add a re-match option for Ranked matches.
Dead or Alive 6 is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
