Tekken X Street Fighter Development at 30% Says Harada
For all the fighting game fans who enjoyed the rather controversial Street Fighter X Tekken and are hoping to experience Tekken X Street Fighter but has somehow got tired of waiting, well, it seems that you may have to wait a little longer. This is due to the fact that the game is not yet scrubbed and is currently at 30% in terms of development as confirmed by Katsuhiro Harada himself during a live-stream broadcast during Kuro Kuro's year-end drinking party. In relation to this, Harada also mentioned that the development is still "pending" may not the be part of Bandai Namco's priority list. From the looks of it, it will take a hefty amount of time before Tekken X Street Fighter is unleashed to the public. 
 
"if the timing arises where it is a good opportunity, then maybe the development on Tekken X Street Fighter will resume. But for the moment it is still on hold," Harada speaking to Finder May 2017 
  
Or is it? 
In May of 2017, Harada told Australian comparison site Finder that the game is on hold due to the immense work and was eventually put on hold due to the launch of Street Fighter V and their (Harada's team) work on Tekken 7. He also states on that particular interview that throwing in another fighting game that features both IP is not a good marketing decision.

Now that both games are out in the open and are about to somehow reach their prime, isn't it the perfect time for the development to resume? Given the fact that Tekken 7 already launched its second Season Pass and has completely revealed each character for DLC 7 while SFV recently revealed a single DLC character in the form of Kage, who from the looks of it could be the final DLC character for the game. Even better is the possibility that the development of the game has already resumed and that Harada or the Japanese Tekken team may be throwing tiny hints to somehow hype up the FGC? These, however, are just speculations. In the meantime, check out the E3 2011 trailer for Street Fighter X Tekken from below and stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
