No, this isn’t a joke, Capcom really did announce the upcoming Street Fighter sequel and nobody even saw it coming.

It all started with a somewhat mysterious countdown timer that showed up on the Capcom official website. Of course, there was plenty of speculation as to what the impending announcement could be.

Fans were actually expecting a Resident Evil Village DLC, or maybe Devil May Cry 6, or maybe even the gaming studio being bought by another major company, as we saw in Activision Blizzard’s case.

But none of the above-mentioned possibilities came true when the timer ran out. Instead, fans were surprised to find out that Capcom was preparing to show them a glimpse of the next Street Fighter title.

Street Fighter 6 is coming soon

Capcom chose a perfect moment to show this sequel to the world, as their reveal lined up perfectly with the end of the Street Fighter Pro Tour Season Final.

You might also want to know that the Street Fighter series is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, having started its life with an arcade-only title, back in 1987.

The teaser trailer for Street Fighter 6 seems to hint at a new exaggerated-realism art style. That being said, Capcom offered no additional details on Street Fighter 6 except to say more will be revealed in the summer.

Developers are also hoping that Street Fighter 6 will have a better launch than its predecessor. Street Fighter 5 is an awesome PS4 and PC game, but it suffered from a lack of new content, as well as bugs and server issues.

Will Street Fighter 6 come to Xbox as well?

As we previously mentioned, there aren’t a lot of details available on Capcom’s upcoming fighting game sequel, and we will have to wait a few months before we find out more about it.

There’s presently no word on whether or not Street Fighter 6 will become available for Xbox, or if it will remain a strictly PlayStation and Windows PC affair.

However, many things can change until the game will be ready, so we won’t exclude this possibility, no matter how unlikely.

There are also no mentions of any new characters coming to the game, new mechanics that will be introduced, or fighting environments, only the teaser trailer we showed you at the beginning of the article.
