If we were to make speculation regarding the release date, Street Fighter 6 will likely be released in Q2 2022. Perhaps we’ll learn more at E3 2022 in June.
Is Street Fighter 6 available to pre-order?
Pre-orders have not yet begun for Street Fighter 6. But once they are, we will be sure to update you. Again, that could be something that happens in the summer. Capcom announced that they will be revealing more information regarding the video game series this summer.
In the meantime, you could go back and play Street Fighter 5 to get yourself ready, in case you haven’t completed it already. The game, which launched way back in 2016, is pretty affordable at this point. Go play the fifth edition so you could play this one like a pro!
On what platforms would Street Fighter 6 launch?
As of now, Capcom has not confirmed the Street Fighter 6 platforms. The previous game in the franchise launched on PS4 and PC as well as being a physical arcade machine.
Rumors on the web suggest that Street Fighter 6 could broaden the franchise’s horizons by launching on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S! However, none of this is officially announced. So, stay tuned as we will be posting more details shortly!
Street Fighter 6 gameplay
We are yet to receive any Street Fighter 6 gameplay, and we need to wait until summer for further revelations. The game’s first trailer seems to imply that the graphics will be getting much more realistic, but it doesn’t give us much else to go on at this stage.
Radio times suggests, “Presumably, the core mechanics of this 2D fighting franchise will remain intact, but we wouldn’t rule out some major changes because next-gen machines have launched since the last installment.”
Rather vaguely, the developers said in the announcement that they are making this game “intending to elevate the fighting game genre to a new level in the world of esports while also utilizing cutting-edge development technology to produce an enthralling game experience”.
