Capcom plans to release the next major revision to Street Fighter IV update, Ultra Street Fighter IV, in early 2014. As the third update, Ultra follows in the footsteps of 2010’s Super Street Fighter IV and 2011’s Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition. 1997’s Street Fighter III only received two updates, so fans have begun asking the question, “When are we going to get Street Fighter V?”
Sadly, it may be quite a while before Capcom learns to count to five. Speaking to VG247, Capcom’s Tomoaki Ayano revealed that the next numbered game in the series may not be released until the end of the decade:
“Game development is a long and arduous process,” he continued. “If you look at the history of the series, it took six years to go from Street Fighter II to Street Fighter III, and nine years to go from Street Fighter III to Street Fighter IV. Purely based on that it would probably take us until the year 2018 before Street Fighter V comes out. So I hope everyone will play Ultra Street Fighter IV for a long time.”
So… Street Fighter V for the PS5 and Xbox OneTwo confirmed!
