Katsuhiro Harada, the creator of Tekken 7, said he is not sure whether it would be a good idea to include cross-platform game in this new release.
Responding to questions from fans on Twitter, Katsuhiro Harada has said that his Tekken 7 will not support the cross-platform play. According to reports by the user, the reason consists in the fact that, within the community of players, there is the belief that PC gamers are able to use cheat, therefore it would benefit them against those on console.
“It’s not a matter of the technology for getting the PS4/XB1/PC players to match up against each other being the issue,” said Harada, but rather first party company policies and potential security risks alongside the community perceived reputation of PC gamers being cheaters that is hindering the decision to allow cross platform play.”
I didn’t say that (you read wrong translation article). It was just one of community’s opinion. Remember, I’m PC gamer.

Note that here Harada does not say that PC gamers are cheaters, only that many users of console believe in the community that are compatible. Regarding security concerns, Harada probably refers to possible hacks.
Tekken 7 will be launched early next year on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, but there has not yet been given a more specific release date. The version for consoles and computers corresponds to Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, an update that hosted the game in Japanese arcades in which new characters are included and significantly improved graphical section.
