Update: Tuesday evening, Bandai Namco confirmed that an additional day for Dragon Ball FighterZ’s open beta has been scheduled. The extra day begins at 9 pm PT tonight (Wednesday, Jan. 17) and runs 24 hours (to 9 p.m. PT on Thursday, Jan. 18). The first open beta ended early yesterday morning.

Dragon Ball FighterZ’s open beta, which commenced this weekend, may be extended because server problems have kept some players out.

The beta got underway Saturday early in the morning for preorder customers of the game, and went fully open early Sunday morning. The original end time is supposed to be 2:59 a.m. ET on Tuesday, Jan. 16 (midnight PT on Monday).

However, this afternoon, Bandai Namco’s U.S. Twitter account acknowledge problems reaching servers and that it may extend the open beta.

Here’s the full statement about what’s going on:

FighterZ, Thank you for playing the Open Beta of Dragon Ball FighterZ and your invaluable feedback. Our team is working...
