The official Tekken X account has posted a message stating that the closed beta test for Tekken 8 will be undergoing emergency server maintenance on Saturday, October 21.
Said message states that players will not be able to play the game for a two hour window during the limited testing time. Read on to see the post.
“Emergency server maintenance will occur on Oct 21st 10:00 JST / 3:00 CEST / 20th 18:00 PDT to Oct 21st 12:00 JST / 5:00 CEST / 20:00 PDT. During maintenance, you will not be able to play the game. We apologize for any inconvenience!”
For those not wanting to convert military time, that’s 6-8pm PT. Here’s the original post on X:

The Tekken 8 Closed Beta Test will be starting on Friday, October 20 at 1:00 a.m. PDT / 4:00 a.m. EDT. This event will last up until Monday, October 23 at 12:00 a.m. PDT / 3 a.m. EDT.
While this is surely a bit of bad news for those who got into the CBT, (you can find out if you were invited as codes have been sent out) the whole purpose of such tests is to refine the overall experience and so delays and hiccups are all but expected.
Many fingers will surely be crossed that this two hour window is more of an estimate, and that developers will have the CBT servers up and running earlier than proposed.
Tekken 8 will be released January 26, 2024 for the PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series consoles.
