Anyone holding a candle for “Tekken X Street Fighter”, should know the game is no longer in active development. This comes after the “Tekken” series game director Katsuhiro Harada offered fans a real reason why production has been halted.

“When we develop fighting games, we try to keep the core community in mind as well as the wider audience that wants to play these games. But currently the situation is with fighting games, you have Street Fighter V that just released- a lot of people are playing that fervently- and there’s a large crowd out there waiting for Tekken 7.” – Katsuhiro Harada

It sounds as if Harada doesn’t want “Tekken X Street Fighter” to compete with “Tekken 7” for sales figures. Simultaneously, he may not want to splinter attention between either franchise or with the “Street Fighter V” community either. If you remember during the timeline of “Street Fighter X Tekken” being released, several problems surfaced within the two camps of Capcom and Namco.

Many criticized the fact that the game featured on disc DLC, which sparked the long kept silent debate on ethical standing on the practice, including the release of Bioshock 2, and Gears of War for Xbox 360. The notion that game companies would put DLC on discs, then charge for an exclusive code to unlock the DLC was outrageous to consumers. It also shed a light on the fact big companies were willing to do anything to stay on top for sales and trends.

This paired with the underperformance of the game may have given the Namco camp more caution “Tekken X Street Fighter”. Although it isn’t officially canceled, “Tekken X Street Fighter” is sitting on the shelf, and doesn’t appear it will be seeing the light of stores anytime too soon if ever.
