After the servers buckled within just hours of release, the Street Fighter V beta has been taken offline by Capcom while it performs some extended maintenance. "We apologise for the ongoing issues that users have been experiencing with the SFV beta test," the publisher told Eurogamer in a statement. "In order to allow us to fix the issues as quickly as possible, we are going to initiate a period of extended maintenance, during which time the beta will be unavailable to all users."

In short, it could be hours yet before the brawler comes back online, but we're just glad that this is happening now rather than at launch - after all, isn't that what betas are for?
