No new information about the title has surfaced online as of yet, sadly.

The news doesn’t stop there as reports that during the “Dragon Ball Games Super Showcase Stream” that aired on YouTube on January 14th, 2019, the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 producer Masayuki Hirano states, “we said that new information on FighterZ would be coming during the Finals, but we’re also planning to release other big news.”
