Social media speculation regarding Tekken 8's release date has been rampant today, all stemming from a post on Reddit. User shyl0c shared a picture from their local game shop, clearly showing Tekken 8 promotional posters complete with a 21st January PS5 launch date. Of course, the fighting title has long been locked in for the 26th January — five days later — but this seemingly new date has had fans wondering whether there's some kind of early release on Sony's current-gen console.
That's not the case, however. Push Square reached out to Bandai Namco, and we were told that the aforementioned date is a simple mistake — most likely a typo on the store's side of things. Tekken 8 is still set to launch on the 26th of this month.
