Capcom won't "even hint" at an SFxT 2013 patch date for PC

Sorry PC gamers, looks like Pandora mode will still be "weak-sauce" on the PC version of Street Fighter x Tekken for a while. See what Capcom's Vice President had to say on the 2013 patch that has been stuck in limbo.

Delay is an understatement.

Last month, Capcom released the 2013 patch for Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) 2013 on PSN and Xbox Live. The version of the patch was 1.08. PC gamers are still stuck on version 1.06.

Capcom has a thing for delays on the PC. It took the company over two months to get the Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition 2012 patch on Windows. It took them over six months to get the SFxT DLC characters on services like Steam.

Fans hoping for some clarity on the PC release of SFxT 2013 won't get one. Capcom Vice President Christian Svensson says it's too risky to give an estimated time of arrival (via Capcom-Unity).

"The team is working on it currently. We haven't provided an ETA given how long it's taken us in the past and how we've disappointed our consumers by given dates that it SHOULD have been completed in. Until we have a prop date, we're not going to even hint at an ETA."
