Stick your laggy Blanka rolls
Capcom has confirmed that its thrilling new scrapper Road Fighter 6 will certainly have absolutely redesigned rollback netcode, and won’t merely port the web infrastructure that powers earlier entry Road Fighter V. The information was revealed by SF6 director Takayuki Nakayama in an interview with IGN. (Suspiciously, it seems that the interview has since been made non-public.)
“SFV additionally had rollback netcode, however SF6 can have rollback netcode [but] it’s not going to be the identical as what we had in SFV,” mentioned Nakayama (in dictation recorded by Eventhubs). “That is one thing that they’re constructing from scratch. There’s a number of effort being put into the event of the netcode.”
Road Fighter V has had one thing of a rocky historical past with on-line play. Casting our minds again, the sport’s on-line connectivity was virtually diabolical at launch, particularly within the Americas. This may quickly give approach to moderate-to-good netcode throughout the board, with solely wonderful netcode being skilled by these with high-speed web connections. The information that SF6 can have trendy, absolutely redesigned rollback netcode will permit the group to be cautiously optimistic. In spite of everything, a fighter is barely as robust as its on-line capabilities.
