BlazBlue: Central Fiction, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle Receiving Rollback Netcode in 2022

Arc System Works continues to add rollback netcode to a number of its older fighting titles, adding BlazBlue titles to the list. BlazBlue: Central Fiction on PC will receive the feature in February 2022 while BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle on PS4 and PC will get it in 2022. In the meantime, a public test for Central Fiction’s implementation starts tomorrow at 8 AM JST.

Rollback netcode has been a heavily requested feature for a number of Arc System Works’ fighters but the company implementing the same last year, starting with Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R. The feature was available in Guilty Gear Strive at launch and contributed strongly to its popularity at launch. It now remains to be seen if other franchises like Granblue Fantasy Versus or Dragon Ball FighterZ will get the same treatment.

In the meantime, Arc System Works is also working on DNF Duel, a new fighting game based on Nexon’s Dungeon Fighter Online. It currently doesn’t have any confirmed platforms or a release date. Check out the latest trailer here.
