Street Fighter Producer Says He Doesn't Have Street Fighter 6

Street Fighter Producer Says He Doesn't Have Street Fighter 6

It seems the focus is on Street Fighter 5, for now.

While Street Fighter 5 has carried on for most of the current console generation's lifespan, some have wondered if a new Street Fighter could be on the way soon. Series producer Yoshinori Ono took to Twitter today to dispel some of those rumors, however.

"I don't have SF6," Ono wrote. "Who ever said so? Our mind is only in one place, #SFVAE [Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition] work!"

That solves that, I suppose. Considering Street Fighter 5 has seen mostly incremental, gradual content updates over the course of its run, it's no surprise the team wants to focus on it. There's a new generation on the way anyways.

Street Fighter 5 had a bit of a rocky start, but the Arcade Edition revision seemed to revitalize the game and get it closer to that Street Fighter pedigree. Despite losing the Evo headliner slot to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate this year, Street Fighter 5 will still play on the Grand Finals Sunday stage. I wouldn't be surprised to see some news either; it's prime time for a new fighter, or maybe a returning face. (Can we please get Makoto?)

While a Street Fighter 6 may not be on the immediate horizon after all, Street Fighter 5 looks to keep going strong. Be sure to read up on how the simple introduction of a parry saved the series in our write-up of the classic Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike.
