Update: As revealed during Gamescom’s Opening Night Live event, Tekken 8 is set to launch on the date reported in yesterday’s leak – on January 26th, 2024.
Harada-san was also on stage to debut a new trailer, which also introduced the new Arcade Quest mode. Take a look at that just below:
Fans eagerly awaiting news of a release date for Tekken 8, a game that’s been heavily marketed and publicly demoed without so much as a nod toward when fans will finally be able to purchase it, might be in luck thanks to a potential leaked date that popped up on social media today.
X user @ALumia_Italia, who we know from previous confirmed leaks mostly involving backend data from the Microsoft Store, has simply posted, “Tekken 8: January 26, 2024” suggesting we’ll see the game very early next year.
We’ve had a few chances to get hands-on with Tekken 8 in the past and are eagerly awaiting its release after saying, “There’s a clear commitment to delivering a unique type of play within the scope of TEKKEN, as well as creating something that warrants the description of being a truly next-gen fighting game. Though I’m uncertain as to how all of its systems will come together in totality, TEKKEN 8 seems like it’s going to be a remarkably good time for both fans and newcomers alike when it launches in the next 12 months.”
