Will Tekken 7 come to PC?

 Tekken series has been an important game in the history of fighting games. Starting from 1994 and first coming in Playstation the Tekken series is still the best fighting game. The last game in Tekken series was Tekken Tag Tournament 2 which was the best fighting game of 2012. It will not be wrong if we call Tekken the King of Fighting games.
                               Now recently a trailer of Tekken 7 was announced which is the next title in the series. Tekken have always been made for Playstation consoles. Some titles also came in XBOX, but they never came in PC. Although PC gamers enjoyed all the games of Tekken on PC till Tekken 5 because of availability of PS and PS2 emulator on PC but they didn't had any chance to play the Tekken games which were made for PS3. Now when Tekken 7 is announced everyone is thinking that will Tekken 7 come to PC? There are doubts about the answer so we are going to take a look on some facts and then give a possible answer whether it will come for PC or not?
                                     First of all we have to take a look on the history. Not a single game in Tekken series was ever released purely for PC. Although they were played on PC by emulators but originally no title in series ever came for PC. So it decreases the chance of getting Tekken on PC but then the statement of Director of Tekken Katsuhiro Harada that
"With Unreal Engine 4, we could rapidly achieve visual quality expected on next-gen platform and go beyond it. Not only is Unreal Engine 4 is powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to immediately bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire."
 The last sentence by Harada that Unreal Engine 4 is not only powerful but it also allows to immediately bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire gives a possible guess that by saying ''Bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire'' means to bring Tekken 7 on PC. This means that it's upto the desire of developers whether to bring it on PC or other console (XBOX). Speaking about the desire of developers we can say that Harada desires that Tekken 7 may come on PC.
                                         The author Ares Bakhtanian of Avoiding The Puddle (a website about fighting games) claims that he interviewed Katsuhiro Harada about the upcoming Tekken game. He told several things about the upcoming title but the thing which concerns out topic was the statement of Harada that
Historically The Tekken series has been developed on Playstation platform but the new tekken is being developed for PC on the PC Platform. 
       It gives a strong belief that Tekken 7 will come on PC. But still there is much confusion and 50-50 chance about will it come on PC or not? More information about the game will be revealed on 25th July.
So what are your thoughts about the game? Do you want it on PC? Share your thoughts below and stay tunned to get more news.

(Edited :- After somedays of publishing this post Tekken 7 was confirmed to be released on PC. The game is expected to come next year)


  1. if they are gonna use UE4 then it'll most likely come to PC.

    Yes there are much probabilities of coming to PC is they are using Unreal Engine 4.

  3. MK reboot came to PC and the upcoming MK:X will also come other fighting games on PC: Injustice, skullgirls, street fighter 4, arcade edition, sf4 ultra will also come to PC. I have played Tekken tag tournament 2 on consoles and i think its fantastic, they should bring that game and Tekken 7 to PC now when gamepads are so common among PC gamers, they should make it cross mulriplatform in online mode!
