Guilty Gear Strive, the popular fighting game, recently launched its third season with significant changes. However, some players have been hesitant to try out the new features due to ongoing issues with the game. These problems have prevented them from playing altogether or have made it extremely difficult to enjoy the game.
Thankfully, Arc System Works, the developer of Guilty Gear Strive, has announced that they have a network security patch in the works to address the persistent “Hackerman” situation. This problem has been impacting certain players for almost a year now, particularly those involved in competitive tournaments and streaming.
Ken Miyauchi, the producer of Guilty Gear Strive, took to Twitter to inform fans of the upcoming patch. He mentioned that the fix for the Hackerman cases will be tested in the patch, which is set to be released on September 25. The exact timing of the patch release will be announced by the official Guilty Gear Twitter account in the coming week.
Interestingly, this announcement marks a change in perspective from just a month ago when Miyauchi stated that the issues were likely caused by an unrelated and non-human-induced cause. The mention of a “network security patch” raises questions about potential hacking incidents behind the problems.
Players affected by the Hackerman situation have experienced various issues, including severe lag, game freezes, and crashes. These problems have significantly hindered online tournaments for months.
As we eagerly await the network security patch, it is hoped that it will provide a permanent solution to the Hackerman issues, allowing players to fully enjoy Guilty Gear Strive without any disruptions.
