After 6 years and two updates, Capcom is finally moving on from Street Fighter 5 and has officially announced Street Fighter 6.

As teased through a countdown website, Capcom has officially announced Street Fighter 6 following the end of the Capcom Pro Tour fighting game exhibition. The countdown was supposed to end at 9 pm PST but remained locked until the end of the stream.

Capcom says more info for Street Fighter 6 is coming this summer.

The short teaser revealed a beefed-up Ryu as he faces Luke, the 45th and final character for Street Fighter 5 who was teased to be in the sequel. The announcement for Street Fighter 6 also coincided with the 35th anniversary of the franchise.

Capcom also announced the Capcom Fighting Collection, an anthology of 10 classic titles including the full Darkstalkers series. The Capcom Fighting Collection will be released on June 24, 2022, for PS4, Nintendo Switch, Steam, and Xbox One.

The next game in Capcom's marquis fighting game series will follow one of the most turbulent entries in the Street Fighter series. The initial response to Street Fighter 5 was tepid, though subsequent updates like Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition and Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition were better received.

Development on Street Fighter 6 was partially leaked during Capcom's massive data breach alongside other games like Dragon's Dogma 2.

Street Fighter 6 will be developed with the involvement of longtime Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono, who left Capcom last year after almost 30 years with the company.
