Street Fighter V Beta is Taken Down [Updated]

If you were one of the many who attempted to get in on the PS4 beta for Capcom's upcoming Street Fighter V like myself, you probably encountered a few problems. Mainly that you couldn't connect which prompted Capcom to take down the game while it works on a solution.

It was thought that this would be a temporary issue, but it seems like it will take a little longer than expected to bring back the game for the rabid fans eager to try out the new game.  In a letter sent out to gaming site Kotaku, Capcom explains why the game isn't back up for players:

"We apologize for the ongoing issues that users have been experiencing with the SFV beta test. In order to allow us to fix the issues as quickly as possible, we are going to initiate a period of extended maintenance, during which time the beta will be unavailable to all users. We will let you know the date on which the closed beta test will re-open once all problems have been fixed. We sincerely apologize for having to bring this unfortunate news to you. Thank you for your patience. Please stay tuned for further updates." 

I have been able to play Street Fighter V during the recent convention season, but was looking forward to playing it the comfort of my own home. Hopefully it gets a quick fix, but you never know .Keep an eye on our site for any updates regarding the beta.

[Update]

The good folks over at Capcom have worked hard and restored access though some reported problems logging in. We managed to sneak a few rounds in and will have our thoughts on the game posted later.
