Capcom producer Yoshinoro Ono took it to Twitter to confirm that Street Fighter V will be getting an official netcode update next week. The update will go live after a scheduled maintenance later this week along with the release of the Champion Edition. 

We saw Capcom taking this action after a modder came up with a way to dramatically improved netcode issues on PC. However, this patch broke cross-platform play. The second patch the modder released made the issue even worse, creating netcode issues between PC players who were using different patches.

Since Street Fighter V is all about timed reflexes and is packed with super-fast action, it is necessary that players have a lag-free online experience. Currently, there is a bug in Street Fighter V that causes a player to experience lag behind the other player. This can lead to artificial lag and one sided rollbacks for the other player. 

Here's a video showing the side-by-side comparison of one sided rollback.

With the new update, we hope that the netcode issue in Street Fighter V comes to an end and grants a smooth gaming experience to players across different platforms. 

Street Fight V: Champion Edition is launching tomorrow on PC and PS4. The Champion Edition gives both returning and new players access to all 39 characters in a single package, along with a new character: Seth. 

Seth originally debuted in Street Fighter IV as an antagonist. Seth was previously the CEO of Shadaloo's S.I.N. weapon division. In Street Fighter V, Seth is seen using a female body and judging from the character trailer for Seth, we expect to see the character getting a male costume too.
