Street Fighter 6 May Have a Better Launch Than Previous Iterations In the Series

Undoubtedly one of 2023‘s most anticipated releases, Street Fighter 6’s release schedule deviates slightly from that of its predecessors, but it has recently come to light that this was not at all accidental and that the game’s producer ‘fought hard’ to keep the game from repeating the pattern established by SFV.

For context, Street Fighter 5 was initially launched earlier on in 2016, and while there was a lot of hype surrounding the game, it was, by no means, a proper release, and hence was filled with bugs and glitches. This was, however, not how Capcom wanted fans to receive the game this time around.  

Kazuhiro Tsuchiya, the game’s producer, spoke with Game Informer about his goals for the game and how he fought to ensure that the game’s core development team had enough time to recognize those goals without being rushed. This was done to avoid a repeat of the disastrous Street Fighter V launch.

It is too soon to say for certain whether or not the producer of Street Fighter 6, Kazuhiro Tsuchiya, was successful in preventing a launch fiasco, but only time will tell if the company has improved enough to prevent a repeat of the last time. He said:

It’s very rare to see games come to fruition where they were able to deliver everything the team was aiming for. There’s always some sort of compromise that had to be made or ideas that had to be scrapped due to budget, schedule, resource issues. But for this time around, regarding the fundamental things that Nakayama-san wanted to accomplish with his dream project, it seems like we haven’t really had to make any sorts of omissions or compromises for this title.”

With the success of Street Fighter V’s post-launch title and content updates, Capcom will likely keep refining the game for years after its initial release in June 2023. This time around, Street Fighter 6 appears to be in a much stronger position than Street Fighter V was prior to its release, and we can only hope that it stays this way.

Let us know in the comments what you think of the game and what are your expectations from it. Till then, we will keep you updated of any information as it becomes available.
