We know that Street Fighter V is a big project meant to be updated with no solid form. This gives you one solid purchases and just updates without having to worry about buying another copy. Although we knew it would be here for awhile I don’t think anyone knew it would be like this as we find that Capcom will support SFV up till 2020. Ono and a colleague will explain.
“Famitsu: So, moving back to the earlier subject, how far does your current road map for Street Fighter 5 development go?
Ono: It’s not just a 1-2 year thing. We’re looking pretty far ahead… We’ve planned out as far as 2020 or so.
Ayano: Street Fighter 5 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.
Famitsu: Are we going to see other titles than Street Fighter during that time, as well… ?
Ayano: That’s not something I’d know, at my level, haha. Please, Ono-san, take over.
Ono: I’d be happy if we could. But first, we’d have to solidify Street Fighter 5 as an eSports title. I said in the beginning that we’ve seen a higher number of entrants than we had in the Street Fighter 4 era, but we’d like to heighten that even further.
The more people participate, the bigger tournaments we can host, and the more people are going to watch them, which is directly connected with our sales, and that’s going to decide the future.”
As always thank you for reading.
