Speculation about Street Fighter 5 and the possibility of coming to Xbox consoles has been swirling lately. Apparently, there is no truth to the rumor, and a Capcom representative recently laid it out in black and white to Gamespot.
“One comment we see a lot is that something like a Super Street Fighter 5 is going to come out on Xbox… But the reality is that this is a real partnership. We are console exclusive for this franchise for this numbered run.”
While it won’t be heading to Xbox, PlayStation 4 owners could be getting the game as early as March 2016. A recent preview of the fighter revealed the target release date, something that Sony and Capcom may very well announce at Sony’s E3 Press Conference.
Street Fighter 5 Producer Yoshinori Ono was recently meeting with Andrew House of Sony, which many have speculated to be a meeting of what’s to be revealed at next week’s show.
Skipping a numbered Street Fighter game is probably a deal-breaker for Xbox One owners who happen to be fighting game fans. Fortunately, Microsoft’s own Killer Instinct has been continuously updated with new content since it’s launch side by side with the console.
