Capcom Admits “Street Fighter V” Needed More Time

Street Fighter V was one of the most highly anticipated games of the year, but when it finally arrived, it faced major criticism for its skeletal package that didn’t even include all of the standard fighting game content—such as a story mode.

Since the game’s release in February, there have been regular updates that include new characters and modes. Still, there’s this sense among many fans that Capcom released a game that clearly wasn’t finished to maximize profits. But in a recent earnings presentation, Capcom revealed that Street Fighter V sold less copies than originally projected: only 1.4 million of an expected 2 million as of March 31.

People are left wondering – will Capcom release a new edition of the game with the missing pieces, or offer a season pass for additional content? There’s also the question of how much Street Fighter fever will be restored once competitions like the Evo Fighting Championships are around the corner.

For now, though, Capcom plans to dedicate more time to developing upcoming releases, citing Street Fighter V‘s reception and sales numbers as a major factor for the adjustment.

“[It]’s best to spend a little more time in developing and running a high-quality title that will perform well globally,” Capcom said. “For example, some aspects of Street Fighter V needed more polish, such as the lack of content and server issues at launch. Accordingly, we feel it’s better to give a little more time to development than before, and have made slight adjustments to our portfolio. Profits may take one or two years longer to stack up than initially expected, however we will be firmly strengthening our brands.”

Ultra Street Fighter 4 Is On Its Way

[youtube id=”pQf9K2QGuew” width=”560″ height=”315″][youtube id=”qP7p7rduqKc” width=”560″ height=”315″]

Capcom’s critically-acclaimed Street Fighter IV series is set to see its next installment with Ultra Street Fighter IV. Staying on par with the near non-stop action the series is known for, five new characters (Elena, Rolento, Poison and Hugo already announced[their trailers are at the end of this article]), and six new stages have been added to the mix, with rebalanced gameplay and original modes including an improved team battle and online training.

Even better more, if you weren’t much of a fan of the balance changes of the previous installments, Ultra Street Fighter IV will offer an edition select option in the character select screen.  So if your favorite character has been toned down for newer installments, it won’t be an issue anymore.

Available via retail, full download, or digital upgrade (for SSFIV and SSFIV: AE owners), users who purchase the retail or full download version will also receive all previous costume DLC released for the series (a $40 value), making this the definitive version of Street Fighter IV to check out if you haven’t already.

Ultra Street Fighter IV is set for release for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for June of 2014, and August of 2014 for PC.
