Soulcalibur: Lost Swords launch delayed for some due to technical issues

Bandai Namco games has delayed the launch of free-to-play downloadable fighter Soulcalibur: Lost Swords due to unresolved technical issues, according to a post on the franchise's Facebook page.

The post does not provide specifics on the technical issue in question, but notes that a resolution requires the work of more than one involved party. Bandai Namco notes it is "feverishly" working with one of the game's key partners to find a solution and launch Lost Swords as quickly as possible.

"There is currently a technical issue that has delayed the launch of the game and we have been working through this issue all through last night and today to expedite the launch of Soulcalibur: Lost Swords," reads the post. "We have discovered that the issue requires a resolution across multiple parties and therefore our efforts to remedy the issue is taking longer than anticipated."

Soulcalibur: Lost Swords was slated to launch through the PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3 on Tuesday. The game is single-player only, but requires online functionality to upload and download player-created assist characters.

Shortly after the game went live, players began reporting that they couldn't connect to the game's servers. Some players are reporting being met with error messages when trying to connect after creating profiles, then being booted back to the game's title screen. Others have managed to play the game without issue, but numerous comments on the PlayStation Blog as well as Twitter and Facebook seem to indicate that the issue is affecting a wide number of players.

Polygon has reached out to Bandai Namco for additional details on these technical issues and when to expect a fix.
