Harada Talked About the Tekken 8 Crossplay, Rollback Netcode, and Launch Characters

Harada Says Tekken 8 Cross-play, Rollback Netcode

Tekken series Director Katsuhiro Harada talked about Tekken 8 features like crossplay and rollback netcode on Twitter over the weekend. On April 8, 2023, he answered questions about the upcoming game and confirmed it would offer both features. He also talked about Tekken 8’s character roster, noting it featured new assets and would have a larger launch roster than Street Fighter 6. He also suggested high specs might be best for native 4K.

First, Harada noted that there will be crossplay in Tekken 8. He also noted he tried to include it in Tekken 7, but Microsoft and Sony got in the way.

Next, Harada mentioned that rollback netcode will be in Tekken 8 and the team didn’t announce it or crossplay is because of people’s comments.

Harada didn’t mentioned exactly how many characters will be in the Tekken 8 launch roster. However, he did say, “I think it’s a lot more than Capcom-san.”

So far, we’ve seen trailers for 12 Tekken 8 characters.

Finally, Harada mentioned that people who want to play in native 4K should make sure their PCs have high specs.

Tekken 8 is in development for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam.
