It's the 20th anniversary of Tekken this year and you'd think that we will get a Tekken 7 Release date or even details about Tekken X Street Fighter but according to Katsuhiro Harada, there will be no Tekken games to be released or announced this year.

 

Tekken Game Director Katsuhiro Harada has said he's working on multiple new projects, and that he hopes to unveil two or three of them in 2014--but it's unlikely that any of them will be Tekken 7.

In an interview with 4Gamer, Katsuhiro Harada reflected on his career in 2013. "As part of being the leader in the development of multiple free-to-play titles, I was also involved in the efforts to change the structures of the console gaming industry with the first party group of SCE, I hope to keep this going into (2014) as well."

"Tekken is one of my life's works, and while I can't say much here, together with the titles we were going to announce this year, I'm also working on several other titles simultaneously with Tekken. From there, I'd like to announce at least two of those titles in 2014, and I feel that it's something I must do."

"There are a few titles that we've been quietly working on, and some we've been thinking about working on, so the year 2014 looks like it'll be a tough one," Harada added.

Harada later clarified on Twitter that the new games aren't related to Tekken. "Probably I'll announce New 2 or 3 titles in this year. But it's not Tekken. Tekken announcement = secret now," he tweeted.

But don't be discouraged yet, Harada may announce Tekken 7 release date or new atleast some new info about Tekken X Street Fighter on December because that date will mark Tekken's 20th anniversary and Harada may have something in store for Tekken fans.

And for those wondering if there will be a Tekken game for Xbox One, PS4 andPC, Katsuhiro Harada tweeted he is planning about making games on the next gen and for the PC

Someone asked Katsuhiro Harada on twitter if there is a chance that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will be on PS4, Harada replied.

"Umm...I think... I want develop new one for PS4."

In a further twitter discussion, Harada mentions he hopes to make Tekken games on PC and Xbox One if he can.

With this announcement Xbox One, PS4 and PC gamers can rejoice in the fact that Tekken will come to them.

Remember, Harada just wanted to develop a free Tekken game and a few months after Tekken Revolution was announced.

I quite enjoyed Tekken 6. I know it got some hate but I played it on PSP and had a pretty good time with it.

So bring it on, Harada. PS4 if need be. Take your time with it.

And scrap Tekken x Street Fighter. I think SF x Tekken did enough damage to the 'brand' to make it not worth your time at all.



I would get the Wii U ver- WAIT A MINUUUUUTE!



If it really comes to PC, I'll buy it.

Tekken X SF wouldnt be the same as SF x Tekken simply because two different developers and the mechanics will be different since Tekken isnt the same as SF. I'm pretty sure at this point, Tekken X SF will become more popular but only if they go that route.

Doesnt seem like Capcom's gonna invest on it though, such a shame too cause I wanted to play SF X Tekken  on PC ;(.

I realise it wouldn't actually be the same.  But people are going to see the name and associate it with SF x Tekken and all the fiasco with on-disk DLC and I'd imagine that will put them off.



Enjoyed Tekken 6 a lot...maybe too much! (20k wins haha)

I'm still of the belief that the PS4 and its current success caught Japan Inc off guard and now they are struggling to get projects up and running for it...which is unfortunate. Many will announce PS3/Xbox 360 games in the not too distant future, i suspect that Tekken vs SF will be announce for them followed by current gen versions (same with Ultra Street fighter 4).
