Street Fighter V is going to be supported by Capcom until 2020



When Street Fighter V launched back in February on PS4 and PC with very little content, fans were hoping and praying that Capcom was playing the long game.

Though we’ve had a few updates since adding a little more meat to the bone of the original release, we were still wondering how long this was going to last for.

Well, now we know that the Japanese publisher intends to support the brawler until at least 2020.

Producers Yoshinori Ono and Tomoaki Ayano were interviewed by Japanese gaming stalwart Famitsu (translated by Event Hubs) where they talked about their plans.

“It’s not just a one to two year thing. We’re looking pretty far ahead,” Ono said. “We’ve planned out as far as 2020 or so.”

Ayano added: “Street Fighter V is a title we’re adding on to as it goes along, so we’re working on it while planning ahead on the best way to develop it further.”

When asked if Capcom would release other fighters during that time frame, Ono reiterated the studio’s focus on Street Fighter, for now at least.

“I’d be happy if we could. But first, we’d have to solidify Street Fighter V as an eSports title,” he replied.

“I said in the beginning that we’ve seen a higher number of entrants than we had in the Street Fighter IV era, but we’d like to heighten that even further.”

Other fighting games series published by Capcom include the Darkstalkers franchise and Marvel vs Capcom.
