Street Fighter 6, the highly anticipated fighting game set to release on June 2, has significant expectations from its publisher, Capcom.
The company’s President, Haruhiro Tsujimoto, recently confirmed in an interview with Famitsu that they have invested a considerable amount of money into the creation of the game and expect it to be a massive success.
Aim for 10 Million Units Sold
Capcom’s President believes that with the experience gained from their previous digital releases, they can aim for 10 million units sold.
This is an ambitious goal when compared to the 7 million copies sold by Street Fighter 5, the most successful chapter of the franchise. However, another fighting game, Tekken 7, has achieved the 10 million milestone only last December, five years after its launch.
Although Capcom has not specified when they expect to reach their sales milestone, Tsujimoto is confident that their IPs, such as Monster Hunter and Resident Evil, have significant reach in the gaming market.
However, it is worth noting that fighting games are a different niche compared to role-playing or action-horror games.
Street Fighter 6’s market debut will be closely watched, and players will ultimately decide if it meets Capcom’s expectations.
The game has been tested and previewed, and early signs suggest that it is highly impressive. It will be available on various platforms, including PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S, with an exclusive Steelbook Edition available on Amazon.
Capcom’s decision to invest a considerable amount of money into the creation of Street Fighter 6 shows the company’s confidence in the franchise.
The game promises to deliver a thrilling experience for fans of the series and attract new players to the fighting game genre.
With its immersive gameplay, stunning graphics, and iconic characters, Street Fighter 6 is shaping up to be one of the most significant releases of the year, and it will be exciting to see how the game performs on the market.
