Street Fighter 6 will feature cross-play multiplayer, as well as rollback netcode. While not officially announced by Capcom itself, the existence of cross-play has been revealed by YouTuber Maximilian Dood, who has seemingly confirmed it directly with the developers.
The presence of rollback netcode in Street Fighter 6 has been revealed by Giant Bomb and GameSpot’s Tamoor Hussain, who was also able to confirm it with the developers after trying out the game. When Hussain asked about the quality of the rollback netcode when compared to Street Fighter 5, the developers didn’t elaborate.
Earlier this week, Capcom revealed that Guile will be joining Street Fighter 6’s roster. Shown off in a new gameplay trailer, the Street Fighter 6 version of Guile brings back all of his classic moves, and he is also able to use a power up that allows him to fire multiple Sonic Boom projectiles in one go.
Street Fighter 6 is set to launch in 2023 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. It is being developed using the RE Engine, and new features to the game include new mechanics and its World Tour Mode. More details on the game will likely be revealed during the Capcom Showcase, which is set for June 13.
Confirmed from the devs directly. Street Fighter VI will have cross play.

Tried to ask if it was better rollback than SF5 but they said they had nothing further to say currently. Also said they had nothing to add on Crossplay, which is happening. https://t.co/2xXf9a1gDm
