When it comes to fighting game licenses, everyone has a bit of a favorite. Indeed, whether it is Smash, Tekken or Mortal Kombat, they are legendary licenses. But there is another one that has managed to make its mark in recent years, and that is Street Fighter! Precisely, the date of Street Fighter 6 has just been leaked on the web!
Street Fighter 6, an expected sequel
As said, Street Fighter 6 is a highly anticipated game. It must be said that since the release of the first episode of the license in 1987, the games have rarely disappointed. Thus, Ryu and his band have many fans. By the way, you may be thinking that the last opus isn’t that old, but it was released in 2016, which is over six years ago now.
A period that is starting to be a bit long. Especially when we know that since the fight is raging and that its competitor Tekken begins for example to present its next game. We have known for some time that this Street Fighter 6 is in the works and that development has even begun. But not much more was known.
Indeed, Capcom had been a bit stingy on the details of the release date. The only thing we knew until recently was that this release would take place in 2023, that’s all. But for a few weeks now, announcements have been made and each time the release date has been refined more and more.
Date leaked on PlayStation Store
Indeed, a few weeks ago, we learned a little more about the release of the game. Thanks to a quarterly report, we learned that Capcom had been a little more talkative with its shareholders than we were. We learned then that the release of the game, it would be for the second half of the year 2023, without more details.
Well, this information has just been confirmed by PlayStation. Better than that, we even got a more precise date! Indeed, as it happens from time to time, pages are launched too early. Well, that’s what happened! On this page, we had the right to know the release date of Street Fighter 6! This one would be planned for June 2, 2023.
So, this date should be taken with a pinch of salt. As long as it has not been made official, it is better not to take it at face value. However, it corresponds to the information released earlier. This makes it very credible. It could be officialized soon. Why not at the Game Awards this weekend.
