Tekken 8: News, Release Dates, Characters, Netcode, And Everything We Know So far
Tekken is a fighter with a long history. Tekken 7 has a large roster and four seasons of additional content. It also features a deep but accessible fighting system. What about the inevitable eighth installment? Bandai Namco would not be foolish to continue the series with over three million sales for Tekken 7. This is everything you need about Tekken 8
NVIDIA responded to the massive GeForce NOW leak earlier this week with a statement to WCCFTech. NVIDIA confirmed that the GeForce NOW leak was real but also included Speculative Titles. Here is the complete statement:
em Data-v-29c1645c NVIDIA has been made aware of an unpublished game list. It contains both released and speculative titles. This list is used for internal tracking and testing. The inclusion on the list does not confirm or announce any game. NVIDIA immediately took action to block access to the list. There were no personal or confidential game data or game builds that were made public.
Could Tekken 8 possibly be one of those speculative titles? Or does NVIDIA have something that the rest of us don’t know about? It will only be time to find out…
13 September 2021 –
After dataminers gained access the NVIDIA internal database list for upcoming releases, a massive GeForce NOW database breach is now in the news. It includes Tekken 8!
Take this information with a grain-of-salt for now, as it’s difficult to determine how many of these placeholders are real. However, we expect we will soon find out more given the extent of the leak.
Date of Release
Okay, we are a bit ahead of the curve here. Bandai Namco has yet to announce the next game in the series at the time this article was written.
The traditional development process has taken six years between each major line release (although Tag Tournament 2 was in the middle). The possibility exists that Tekken 7 assets could be repurposed for a next-gen title. This is something we have seen before with Tekken Tag Tournament on PS2. Could Tag Tournament 3 be the next game?
Tekken 7 has added a number of fighters to its roster, including some that were sourced from other sources.
