The original Street Fighter released for arcades back in 1987, which means 2022 is the year that Capcom’s beloved fighting series will be celebrating its 35th anniversary. Proper celebrations for the occasion are yet to fully kick into gear, but Capcom has begun preparations- the official logo for the series’ 35th anniversary has been shared on Twitter. Check it out below.
It’s been a while since the launch of the last mainline game in the series, but that could soon be changing. Capcom said in November of 2021 that it’d be sharing more details on the series’ future in 2022, and with Street Fighter celebrating a milestone anniversary, now seems like a great time to announce the next game in the series.
Rumours have indicated that Street Fighter 6 is in development for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox as a cross-gen game. It was allegedly due out in 2021, but got delayed due to development troubles. Yoshinori Ono, executive producer of the Street Fighter series, announced his departure from Capcom midway through 2020, before being appointed as the president and COO of Delightworks in April of last year.
