The debut of STREET FIGHTER 6 occurred during the Capcom Pro Tour 2021 Season Final in February, which means fans of the legendary fighting game franchise are pumped and eager to begin another hard-hitting round of combo-breaking action shortly.
All that we know about Street Fighter 6, including a rundown of its trailers, our expectations for the game's roster, and our best guesses as to when the game will be released, is compiled in this article.

What Is the Release Date of Street Fighter 6?
There is no particular release date for Street Fighter 6 yet, according to Capcom. The publisher has stated that fans will be able to discover more about the game sometime this summer, if not sooner. A showcase at Geoff Keighley's Summer Game Fest, E3, or a comparable webcast presented by Capcom themselves, we assume, would be on the cards.
Following a Capcom hack in late 2020, the game has become a known quantity, indicating that the project will likely be well along. We believe that a release date of late 2022 or perhaps in 2023 is feasible for the time being.
Capcom published Street Fighter V in February of 2016, so it's feasible that the company may target a similar release timeframe for the game's sequel the following year. After all, the publisher has seen considerable success with previous Q1 releases like Resident Evil 7 and Monster Hunter: World, and they may choose to follow a similar path with Street Fighter.
Is There a Trailer for the Street Fighter 6?
Yes! A 30-second teaser clip for Street Fighter 6 surprises spectators of the Capcom Pro Tour Finale in February. The film doesn't disclose much beyond a very broad Ryu prepping for the fight against series newcomer, Luke. Luke was previously hinted at as a crucial figure for the future of the Street Fighter franchise, and we see that suggestion materialize here.
Which Street Fighter 6 Characters Are There?
Ryu and Luke are the only characters who have been officially confirmed to be a part of the Street Fighter 6 lineup, according to Capcom.
Unfortunately, there haven't been any leaks on who else could be included in the game, but fans can expect roughly 25 characters when the game is fully released. In late February, the FGC website EventHubs ran a survey. Here is a list of the top 20 characters that fans would want to see a return.
- Fei Long
- C. Viper
- Dee Jay
It should be noted, however, that if the DLC rollout for Street Fighter V is any indicator, Capcom does not always side with the fans regarding featured characters. Nonetheless, the results of this survey provide insight into what franchise fans could desire.
For those not impressed with the first lineup, a 2020 data leak implies that Capcom aims to release two incarnations of Street Fighter 6 in the future years, one in 2020 and one in 2021.
If and when these games are released, they will most likely be referred to as Super Street Fighter 6 and Ultra Street Fighter 6, according to franchise precedent, but we will have to wait for official confirmation before we can be sure.

What Are the Platforms for Street Fighter 6?
In the official Street Fighter 6 announcement, Capcom did not specify which platforms would be supported; however, graphics from the November 2020 data leak indicated that SF6 would be available on both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One this time around.
The reports claim that there will not only be an Xbox version of the game but the title will also be transferred to last-gen platforms such as the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, among others.
It's conceivable that agreements and financial conditions have changed since those Capcom emails were first discovered. Still, the fact that the Street Fighter 6 preview did not have any PlayStation branding at the top of the screen might be revealing.
Is Yoshinori Ono Now Involved in Street Fighter 6?
No. Soon after the game's first announcement, IGN incorrectly announced that Ono would be creating the following installment. Given that Ono left Capcom in April of last year, it was determined that the error resulted from a misprint. Currently, it looks like Yusuke Hashimoto, a game designer, and Kazuhiro Tsuchiya, a producer, will be in charge of the project.
Street Fighter 6 will probably have a different feel than its previous predecessors under new leadership. Still, Ono will likely have had a hand in the game's early concept, even if he won't be directly involved with the completed result. Street Fighter 6 is scheduled to release in 2015.
The Street Fighter 6 Logo Controversy: What Is It?
Following the game's announcement, fans expressed dissatisfaction with the logo, with many claiming that it resembled an emblem for a mobile application with a notification box in the corner.
When Aurich Lawson of Ars Technica examined the new title's logo, he discovered that it was remarkably similar to one formerly available on Adobe's stock image site but has since been taken down by the company's legal department. Previously, the image could be purchased for $80 through the user xcoolee's gallery.
Capcom has acquired the sole usage rights to the Adobe brand, according to xcoolee, who spoke to IGN about their decision to remove the emblem from Adobe's shop. Representatives from Capcom have not replied to inquiries about the similarities between the two photos thus yet.
