After the latest Tekken game which is released in 2015, the players and the fans of the series started to ask the question “Will there be a Tekken 8?”.
The latest game of the series, Tekken 7, was a great success. The latest game of the series, published on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms, received an average score of 82 over metacritic, approaching the success of the series’s favorite game, Tekken 3.
Some of the players who follow the series also follow the same type of game, Mortal Kombat. Mortal Kombat’s last game did not get good grades from the players, although received good grades from critics, and the eyes turned to the Tekken side.

There will of course be a new Tekken game in the future. The creators of Tekken will not leave their “Tekken” rights behind and will release the Tekken 8 game, some rumors that the game has started to be developed.
Although the developer company avoids questions about Tekken 8, the developer of the game, Katsuhiro Harada, stated in the following tweet that he is in the plans for the future of the series last April.
“Since I can no longer fly around the world, I have time to write a new title planning sheet & design document. Of course I’m also thinking about what to do with the new plan of “TEKKEN World Tour” and TEKKEN Series with many staff.”
Is the game Tekken 8 officially confirmed?
Everything is just rumor right now, nothing about the game has been officially confirmed. Perhaps the next game may be Tekken 3 Remake.
Tekken players tasted the impressive story as well as the action of the game. The dramatic story of Tekken will continue in the 8th game of the series.
What will be the story line of Tekken 8?
As there is no clue about the game yet, what we have to say now is only guesses. In the new game, perhaps we can see that the secret curtains in the game have disappeared.

The devil genes things may end before the players are bored.
