Arcade fighting game fans are probably well-aware that Capcom is currently working on Ultra Street Fighter IV, but due to lack of staff and a budget, at the moment there are no plans for a Street Fighter V, much to the disappointment of many Street Fighter fans around the world. However while there are no plans for a Street Fighter V, Yoshinori Ono admitted to 4Gamer that he does not want the Street Fighter series to end at IV, although we also acknowledged that creating a new title especially for next-gen consoles could pose a challenge.
According to Ono, “Personally, I don’t want to stop Street Fighter’s main numbered series at IV […] Realistically speaking, developing a title for next-gen consoles requires a huge amount of staff members, and a large sum of money. The issue of money also applies to everyone else, as it’ll be required to invest in a new console, game, and arcade stick.” Of course given that Ultra Street Fighter IV has yet to hit the shelves, thinking about Street Fighter V could be a bit premature, but hopefully the sales of Ultra Street Fighter IV will be enough to convince the executives at Capcom to invest money into producing a sequel.
