For years to come.
'Street Fighter V' has only just been revealed and yet series' fans know that the game will have a life that could easily last a decade, especially with likely 'Super' iterations and additions. Thus, Epic's announcement that 'Street Fighter V' is built using the Unreal 4 engine means that the partnership between Epic and Capcom must last the test of 'SFV' time.
From Capcom Producer Bochan Kim, "Our goal with the next generation of Street Fighter is to take our beloved fighting game franchise and bring it to our fans in the best way possible. In order to fully deliver on that promise, we know we have to incorporate the latest and greatest technology available, which is why we partnered with Epic Games to power Street Fighter V using Unreal Engine 4."
'Street Fighter V' will be the first Capcom fighter to debut on a new console (the PS4), and that everything from the visuals, to the controls, to the online experience will be under serious scrutiny. This is the kind of challenge that Epic has been waiting for.
From Taka Kawasaki, Territory Manager at Epic Games Japan, "I have been a very loyal fan of this historic franchise since the debut of the first Street Fighter in 1987. This opportunity to help the development team using Unreal Engine 4 for the new title is a great honor for Epic, and I couldn’t be more proud. We know that the expectation level of fans is extremely high, so the support staff of both Epic Japan and Epic HQ have been providing dedicated support to help the team realize the very best performance from Unreal Engine 4 and deliver the highest quality experience to players."
'Street Fighter V' as announced, is exclusive to the PS4 and PC and is expected in 2015.
