I can only speak from experience, but a couple of the Japanese people u follow have said that a lot of people are still going to work even despite the fact they have been in a state of emergency. I Japanese friend of mine did say that quarantine isn't happening so much anymore though.

Yeah, the state of emergency was lifted a couple of weeks ago. That's why it was odd to me that they would say "we're moving to work at home." Y'all are a bit late. lol

In all seriousness, safety first. I wouldn't trust that emergency lift for a second. If people can work from home, they should. I think they said 100-ish people got infected in Tokyo the other day. R.I.P. in pieces, America.

I have to admit, I'm a tiny bit glum about the content of those two tweets in that, while somewhat vague on the details, they kinda sorta did imply that the DLC production is even further behind schedule than I was anticipating: my hope had been that Setsuka was already well underway when the lockdown began, that she and any incidental assets necessary to release her might be completed by this juncture, and that her release would come no more than one to two months later than it otherwise would have (that is, relatively soon). I'm not longer as confident of that, based on those comments. But, as you say, better that they should push the timetable and protect the team than take risks at a time like this.

No, its not because Setsuka was always going be saved for EVO Online 2020. I seem to see the Namco DLC schedule pattern for Tekken 7 & SCVI.
T7 gets DLC a month after EVO, days after the Tekken World Tour Finals, & after EVO Japan. SCVI gets DLC before Christmas, a month or two after EVO Japan, days after EVO with another announcement.

I don't think that's likely to be what is at play here in the delay. For one, we've only been through one complete season so far, so there's no 'pattern' to point to here as yet. For another, I doubt very much their initial plan was to have a nearly six month wait between DLC 2 and DLC 3, as that is significantly longer than how they have staggered previous releases. If you look at the actual dates of drops for the six characters to be released so far, they are highly irregular in both the specific dates and the time period between them, but until COVID there was a maximum span of about four months, with the mean being somewhere around 3 and 3.25 months. Yeah, I don't think this was an EVO target, especially considering they have known for months now that EVO was unlikely to go forward this year.

So this could be a big loss of "leaks" for our end. If we can't see the DLC slots appearing then we will just be in the dark waiting for official announcements I guess. Obviously steamdb didn't give us leaks but it did give us an idea of how much future content would come and when we could get it.
So this gives devs back the 'element of surprise' then? if so, I'm sure they're able to take a breather now that they don't have to go through the headache of having bits of their game leaked. can't imagine how many times they probably lost their **** when someone 'cracked' the code and put it up on Reddit, Discord, YouTube, etc. I remember watching Harada and Okubo making "There was no leak" jokes on stage. probably really got to em lol.

Well that method might be closing but they still have to be diligent about what they leave in the game for us to see, as Amy Cassandra Setsuka and Hwang have been leaked due to obvious and not so obvious references left behind...

Kudos though to the dev team for at least keeping Setsuka and Hwang a secret for almost 4 months!

I could be wrong, but I don't think this affects SC6 stuff. SteamDB is collecting "tokens" which allows it to collect info on more games, and those tokens shouldn't be hard to get for any released game. Maybe this affects the locked development depots for SC6, but I guess we'll see.

I'm not surprised Valve is trying to increase security on this. There have been many leaks due to SteamdDB being able to dig up all kinds of info.

Remember the old 4chan rumor of Hwang possibly being in the base roster of SCVI. He wasn't in the base roster as a playable character, but a small hint of him being DLC in the future was that he wasn't a CaS enemy in Libra of Souls like Lesser Lizardman. In SC:BD Quick Battle Hwang did appear as a CaS with Yun-seong's style or in SCV Quick Battle was DJ's style because Yun-seong was absent.

Setsuka got way too many hints after the huge datamine in January 2019.

1.) SNOW - Setsuka's name in Japanese is Snow-flower.

2.)
3.) The Pink Slot

The 4chan rumour was based around the info leaked from someone at the sound recording department. The leaker even mentioned that they weren't sure if Hwang was going to be a character. I can't remember the exact details, but I do remember that in this leak, the list of characters had Azwel's name there long before his reveal trailer.

That leak also had Aeon as a character. Both Hwang and Aeon were planned based roster but didn’t make it. I won’t be convinced that that isn’t true. Aeon was halfway into development and that’s why we got Lesser Lizardman as an enemy to fight at least, but they didn’t get anywhere with Hwang of note, probably got pushed out for Tira, who they knew they would be selling as day one DLC. That being said, it’s kind of sad that neither of them made it into season one, though it is a bit reassuring that Hwang at least is making it into season two. Aeon will likely appear in season three. Better late than never.

do you have preference between axe axe aeon or axe shield lizardman?

Of course Setsuka & Hwang are getting new stages + Soul Chronicles.
Soul Chronicles are a given, but stages are not. It’s likely certain that one of the two will get a brand new stage, based on developer comments, but claiming that both of them will get a brand new stage for sure isn’t absolutely certain. One of them (probably Hwang) will likely get a “new stage” like Hilde and Amy, which is an existing stage, but with different time of day and ambient environmental objects. That requires a lot less work to do and isn’t something that would delay a release, when the stage geometry already exists as a base, versus making something completely from scratch.
