Street Fighter 6 Might Arrive Sooner Than We Think!

While Capcom says that the new installment in its three-decade-long fighting franchise will be released sometime in 2023, the game could be released in the first quarter.

 

The South Korean age rating committee has evaluated Street Fighter 6, which received a 15 rating. It suggests that the game is not far from the finish line, and an older, similar scenario can be cited. Guerrilla Games’ Horizon II Forbidden West was rated in November last year, and the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 got it in February, so about three months have passed between the rating and the release.

That’s in contrast to God of War: Ragnarök, which is also available on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 (heh, it’s like Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO Jim Ryan has gone off the deep end again: he used to say it was time to move on from PlayStation 4, so Horizon II is a PlayStation 5-exclusive, but then they changed their minds), which was reviewed in May but not released until November. Thus, the gap was six months…

Capcom said in their latest financial report that they would have one more significant release in the financial year ending on March 31. That is, of course, Resident Evil 4 Remake, but the Japanese publisher may change its plans. Officially, there are no plans to release it in the current financial year, but who knows, a spring release is possible. But it’s worth looking back at the past. Street Fighter V came out in February 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PC, and Street Fighter IV was released in February 2009 for PS3 and X360 (with the arcade version available to play from the summer of 2008). So it might be appropriate to continue the tradition, but it’s up to Capcom…

Street Fighter 6 is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC, and PlayStation 4 sometime in 2023 (Resident Evil 4 Remake is also coming to these… how much did Sony pay Capcom for the PS4 ports?).
