Tekken 8 Release Date Leaked Via Microsoft Store

The release date for Bandai Namco Entertainment’s upcoming fighting game, Tekken 8, has been leaked via the Microsoft Store.

Twitter user ALumia_Italia, who has shared similar leaks before, has now revealed that Tekken 8 has been added to the Microsoft Store database with a release date of January 26, 2024.

Tekken 8 release date

This falls close to the previously expected release window of February-March. In its Financial Report for the First Quarter of the Fiscal Year Ending March 31, 2024, Bandai Namco Entertainment had shared that it was planning to release major titles, including Naruto X Boruto, in the second half of the Fiscal Year. While Tekken 8 wasn’t specifically mentioned, it is indeed a major upcoming title for the publisher, and, therefore, is highly likely to be included in the mentioned major releases.

A release in the second half of the Fiscal Year Ending March 31, 2024, suggested that Tekken 8 would see the light of day sometime between October, 2023 and March, 2024. However, a rating filed by the Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea on August 11, 2023, suggested that the game would be released within the first half of 2024. Putting two and two together, and also taking into account that the Tekken World Tour season ends on January 14, 2024, this leaves us will a likely release for Tekken 8 between the second half of January, 2024 and March, 2024. Therefore, the leaked Microsoft Store release date of January 26, 2024 appears to be accurate and falls in line with prior information.

As per the aforementioned rating in Korea, Tekken 8 has been rated 15+, and is therefore suitable for 15 year olds and above. According to the reason cited for this rating, the classification decision states that Tekken 8 features limited violence, which involves continuous fighting.

Tekken 8 is an upcoming fighting game co-developed by Bandai Namco Studios and Arika and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. Serving as the eighth primary and overall tenth addition to the Tekken series, it is set for release on PlayStation 5, Windows, and the Xbox Series X and Series S platforms.
