Virtua Fighter Reboot is another project in development by Sega, it is not being created by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio and there are “staff from the latest Virtua Fighter games” working on the project; this is what the well-known account is hinting.
The Virtua Fighter reboot is being developed by Sega and RGGS, perhaps for PC, Steam Deck, PS4, PS5, and Xbox. Although it is a rumor, it has been started by a well-known account that was right with Persona 3 Reloaded at Atlus.
With big names like Street Fighter 6, Tekken 8, Mortal Kombat 1, and/or Guilty Gear Strive, there are fighting game fans who have been eating really well for months; this may have encouraged the company.
However, at the moment there is nothing official about it. The only information we have comes thanks to the well-known insider account Midori, who is almost always giving details for the future.
Almost always -and particularly from Atlus- has been offering information about projects currently in development and related to Sega. Recently, we saw how the company announced two remakes of the Persona saga.
Recently, it was said on Elon Musk’s social media that the developer has a Virtua Fighter reboot on the way. Apparently, this time Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio (Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth) is not in charge.
The Japanese created Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown, but apparently there are “staff from the latest Virtua Fighter games” working on the project.
The leak also mentions that the game will have single player elements and multiplayer elements, and will try to attract casual and hardcore players alike; “including competitive players”.
This information says: “This is a reboot that is not being developed by RGG Studio. It is being developed by characters from the latest Virtua Fighter games”.
Sega has recently expressed a desire to revive various inactive franchises, as seen in the announcement made during The Game Awards 2023 last December.
Is it true that Sega is working on Virtua Fighter Reboot?
And these would not be the only franchises to have reboots, as there were other leaks announcing that three other classic Sega sagas will also be revived with new games.
VF is a game series that has been dormant for many years, although recently Virtua Fighter 3tb Online was released for arcades in Japan.
This new leak that Sega is working on Virtua Fighter Reboot changes things a bit in the company, we will see how the rumors evolve around it.
