Devil Jin is a character that has been banned since the beginning of Soulcalibur V. Whether your reasoning for wanting him gone was due to his crazy pre-patch ringouts or his Tekken origins, the official reasoning for the ban was from the lack of a character model. This means that we are forced to use character creation mode to access him.
The potential problems with that is that there are certain hitbox issues that can be induced by the custom characters that cause unintended misses or hits. Recently, we have developed a team in response to the online players who use Devil Jin and don't want to go out to tournaments because of the ban.
We have made and set a standard character in creation mode. That way we can have consistency in any wonky hitboxes that may occur by using the same model every time. Now it is like the wonky hitboxes we already have for the characters in SCV!

The first tournament to allow Devil Jin will be Summer Jam or possibly the side tournament at CEO. We hope to see you all learning how to use and beat the character for the future.
