As reported on their countdown website, Capcom has officially announced the latest installment of its competitive fighting game video game: Street Fighter 6. Capcom isn’t revealing many details about this new generation of fighting games, with a new short teaser. preliminary information about Street Fighter 6, including at least Ryu and Street Fighter 5 newcomer Luke is on the list. Following the announcement that the game was in development, Capcom released a teaser trailer confirming the addition of a new contender to the franchise.
The gaming platforms are yet to be confirmed and there are some details in the official press release, but we’ve been told to expect more information this summer. we expect additional information to be released around the time of E3, usually in June. Capcom made headlines last week after launching a cryptic countdown website that just ended today. A teaser for Street Fighter 6 showed a fixed gaze between Ryu and Luke, the latter of which was introduced in Street Fighter V. A short teaser trailer follows the Capcom Pro Tour season finale where Kawano defeated veteran Daigo Umehara.
Last week, Capcom introduced a one-week countdown. Unfortunately for those glued to the clock, the countdown was supposed to end at 9:00 PM PT, but it stuck until the end of the Capcom Pro Tour finale. The fact that the countdown ended on February 21 led to the conclusion that Street Fighter 6 should be a new addition to Capcom’s iconic fighting game series as Capcom’s competitive Street Fighter 5 Tournament, Capcom Pro Tour 2021 Finale season ends today. The trailer, website, and Capcom’s Twitter feed seem to confirm that Street Fighter 6 is dropping the Roman numerals from the title – it’s called Street Fighter 6, not Street Fighter VI, unlike any other game in the franchise.
It’s clear that the latest iteration of the Street Fighter franchise will have its place on the Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X. However, the announcement will be made this summer. According to Capcom, more Street Fighter 6 news will arrive “in the summer of 2022”, so let’s imagine Capcom giving us our first glimpse of the streets at a summer conference Overlord 6 and some interesting details at Game Fest/E3, as Capcom usually holds its annual conference around this time.

It looks like Capcom has been busy, as Capcom also announced the Capcom Fighting Collection, which includes 10 iconic games as well as two that have never been released in North America.
