Team Ninja Ends Development On Dead Or Alive 5

Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja have been teasing an announcement at the Dead or Alive 5 Battle Royale 2017 Grand Finals at Northeast Championship 18 in Pennsylvania. The developer tweeted that fans should be watching the event using the "I'm A Fighter" slogan that was used for Dead or Alive 5's marketing, leading people to believe that a new game in the series would be announced there. Instead, Team Ninja ended up holding a funeral for Dead or Alive 5, which was briefly interpreted to be a goodbye to the entire Dead or Alive series. The announcement was also confusing for many because Team Ninja had announced a few months prior that development on Dead or Alive 5 had ended, causing confusion among fans that expected a new game announcement. Dead or Alive 5 first released in 2012 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It has since been ported to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game has been an extensive DLC moneymaker for Koei Tecmo, with hundreds of dollars of costumes and characters available for sale.
