After the success of the closed beta, the Dragon Ball FighterZ open beta taking place this weekend is facing some unexpected hurdles. Many players have been experiencing issues logging in and Bandai Namco says they are hard at work to fix the problem.
In a tweet, Bandai Namco acknowledges the issues that players have been having, explaining that the problems are extensive enough that they may not be able to resolve quickly and may extend the open beta as a result.
FighterZ, the DRAGON BALL FighterZ Open Beta is experiencing network issues that cannot be addressed quickly. We'll keep the Open Beta online but you might experience problems during gameplay. We may extend the Open Beta, more info here: https://t.co/5WMdnjzVQ5 #DBFighterzBETA pic.twitter.com/4c7EJCqhFE

In a linked Facebook post, the developer elaborates that the tea is working hard but that players will have to wait for the next server update before the problems are resolved:
Thank you for playing the Open Beta of Dragon Ball FighterZ and your invaluable feedback. Our team is working hard on optimizing the Open Beta but ran into some issues that cannot be addressed in a short amount of time, so we are asking for your patience until the next server update. The current Open Beta will remain online and available so that the players who can log in and play it, can keep doing so.
Please note, that if we cannot address the issues within a decent amount of time, we will consider extending the Open Beta of Dragon Ball FighterZ. Thank you for your support and patience as we work towards an optimal gameplay experience.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is scheduled for launch January 26th on PS4, PC, and Xbox One. The open beta is scheduled to run until January 16th. Be sure to check out the Mammoth Gamers for further updates.
