posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Arc System Works announced on Sunday at the Evolution Championship Series 2019 fighting game tournament that it is developing a new game in the Guilty Gear fighting game series that will launch in 2020.
Daisuke Ishiwatari is the game's general director, and Akira Katano is directing the game.
Arc System Works President Minoru Kidooka had hinted at a new entry in the fighting game franchise at the Evolution Championship Series 2018 tournament last August.
Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2, the game's latest entry, was marketed as both a new entry in the series, and as a lower priced online update for Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator. The game launched for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC in May 2017, and also launched in arcades in Japan in the same month.
The original Guilty Gear fighting game debuted on PlayStation on May 14, 1998. The franchise celebrated its 20th anniversary last year. PQube released a "Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Edition" bundle on May 17 in Europe. The bundle includes the Nintendo Switch versions of the original Guilty Gear game and the Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R game. Arc System Works America released the games individually digitally in the United States, and also released the original Guilty Gear game for PS4 and PC (via Steam).
