The 15th installment of the acclaimed fighting game series The King of Fighters will not release in 2021 as planned. As the producer of the game Yasuyuki Oda said in his letter, the release of The King of Fighters XV will take place only in the first quarter of 2022.
The reason for the transfer, as you might guess, is the coronavirus pandemic. After weighing all the pros and cons, the team made the final decision that the quality of the product should come first, and this requires additional time.
Unfortunately, the list of platforms The King of Fighters XV is coming out on has not yet been announced.
