New fighting games are possible before then.
'Street Fighter V' didn't have the strongest launch, but Capcom has added quite a bit to the game in its first year. From new characters to a story mode, the game has a lot more content than when it launched in February. That's only the beginning though, as producer Yoshinori Ono revealed that support is planned up to 2020 in an interview with Famitsu (translated by Event Hubs).
When asked about how far ahead Capcom is thinking about supporting 'Street Fighter V,' Ono said that "it's not just a 1-2 year thing." He revealed that the company is looking further ahead and have already planned out "as far as 2020 or so." Capcom producer Tomoaki Ayano also chimed in saying that "we're adding on to as it goes along, so we're working on it while planning ahead on the best way to develop it further."
Another topic touched upon in the piece was if the team would work on any other fighting games in that time period. "I'd be happy if we could," answered Ono. "But first, we'd have to solidify 'Street Fighter V' as an eSports title. I said in the beginning that we've seen a higher number of entrants than we had in the 'Street Fighter IV' era, but we'd like to heighten that even further."
'Street Fighter V' is available now on PlayStation 4 and PC.
