Capcom has issued a statement regarding problems players have been having with the PS4 remaster of Ultra Street Fighter 4 and revealed the game will not form part of the Capcom Pro Tour until further notice.

Ultra Street Fighter 4 for PS4 was released earlier in May but numerous reports from players on social media pointed out a number of problems. These included choppy menu screens, poor textures, bugs in gameplay and missing sound files. There have also been instances of input lag, which is particularly problematic in a fighting game.

A Capcom spokesperson told GameSpot: "We are aware that some users are experiencing problems with the PS4 version of USFIV, which is published and developed by SCEA's Third Party Production group.

"SCEA and Capcom are currently looking into the issues that some users may be experiencing and are working to resolve them as quickly as possible. We will continue to provide updates on our progress."

Capcom also discussed how the Capcom Pro Tour will be affected. Ultra Street Fighter 4 was once set to be played in competition but that will no longer be the case. It is not yet clear how Evo – the world's most renowned video game fighting tournament – will respond but organisers are discussing what to do.

"The integrity of the Capcom Pro Tour is a top priority for us and we will continue to work with tournament organisers worldwide to ensure that the highest quality event will be run," they said. "Each region will maintain its current hardware standard for the remainder of the 2015 Capcom Pro Tour until otherwise announced. We will keep you updated as to when the PS4 version of USFIV will be integrated into the Pro Tour."
