Data taken from the recent filtering of files and personal data of Capcom show that Street Fighter VI is in development as an intergenerational game without platform exclusivities: it will be released in PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S y Xbox One, leaving aside Nintendo’s hybrid console, Switch.
Of course, the Japanese developer has not commented on the matter, so none of this is confirmed. Among the more than 1 terabytes of leaked Capcom data and files, the Twitter user @pokeprotos has found a email where the sixth installment is mentioned of the fighting game and the consoles for which it will be in development. The email is about the progress in 3D modeling of characters and / or settings.
Ragnar has just released more onto the internet, this time including emails regarding #StreetFighterVI.
Capcom has not announced that it is working on a successor to Street Fighter V, available exclusively for PlayStation 4 and PC. However, the scene of the fighting games speculate at the end of 2019 with the premiere from Street Fighter 6 in 2021. The reasoning behind all of this is that Capcom announced that the Capcom Cup 2020 champion will not automatically qualify for the tournament the following year, as usual, a move that was read by the community as a release of the sixth installment before the Capcom Cup 2021.
However, in August of this year the insider “Dusk Golem”, who has leaked numerous details of Capcom productions such as Resident Evil 8: Village (not all of them correct), pointed out that the development of the fighting game was not progressing correctly, partly because director Yoshinori Ono was focusing the game on a equipment mechanics that it did not fit between the developers; this would have led to a delay in the planned release date, so it would not arrive in 2021. Three days later, Ono announced that he was leaving Capcom.
Between Capcom’s data leak, released by a group of hackers that extortion economically the Japanese company, other projects whose development has not been confirmed or denied are mentioned, such as a version for virtual reality of Resident Evil 4, a battle royale inspired by this saga and more installments of Ace Attorney.
