A spokesperson from Capcom has been quoted as saying Street Fighter V will never stray from the platforms that have already been announced, according to details provided by GameSpot’s Tamoor Hussain.
“There will never be a Street Fighter V on anything but PlayStation,” Hussain said of his interaction with the company representative, quickly following up with, “and PC,” when prompted by his co-host. “Never ever.”
This “scoop” shouldn’t come as much of a shock to anyone who has been following this title, as Capcom has all but stated Sony is backing Street Fighter V’s creation, but it does give some of the more suspicious fans a reason to stop rolling their eyes in this age of limited exclusivity. Their partnership also extends to this year’s Capcom Cup, which has seen a massive expansion of its prize pool thanks to Sony’s involvement.
UPDATE (12:35 PM PDT) – GameSpot has provided an update to their previous story in the form of a longer interview with the aforementioned Capcom representative.
“We’re not talking about how we’re handling post-launch content, but I can say the relationship with Sony does open doors for things we haven’t been able to do in the past,” they mentioned. “The relationship serves a gameplay and development purpose, and not just a marketing value.”
Street Fighter V is currently in development. You can find our hands-on impressions with an early build here.
