Rumor: Street Fighter 6 could make it to Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S

Luke is the newest character to arrive at Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition as DLC this November 29th and will be the last to reach the title which is already closing its doors to more content. It’s almost an open secret that Capcom is working on what will be Street Fighter 6In fact, IP director Takayuki Nakayama and producer Shuhei Matsumoto discussed the upcoming issue of the legendary IP and the relevance the character Luke would have in the game’s story.

Street Fighter 5 was a roller coaster, a troubled title at first, incomplete, that needed to win back the crowd despite the relevance of its name. Unfortunately, it was also the big absentee of the genre on Xbox, as the title only made it to Playstation and PC, which seems to have contributed to its not so good reception by the public.

Matsumoto indicated that as early as 2022 we would have news of the next stage of the series: “The farewell to Street Fighter 5 is more of a “goodbye” than a “goodbye”. No next year we will be able to tell you more about what is to come”.

If we stick to the rumors (which are never lacking in these cases), Street Fighter 6 should have arrived in 2021 but a repertoire of development problems would have delayed the release and would have caused the departure of Capcom of Yoshinori Ono, the director of the franchise.

Everything seems to indicate that Ryu and Ken’s new title will fix its previous bugs and will arrive on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, as well as PC, PS4 and PS5, although confirmations seem to be arriving.
