Capcom has just released the Twitch viewership numbers for this year’s Capcom Pro Tour finale at Capcom Cup 2017.  The numbers released show growth in all areas such as total minutes watch, max concurrent viewers, and especially total unique viewers.

This year’s Capcom Cup had more viewers than last year. Specifically, 2017’s viewership grew by 45%, reaching 2.1 million unique viewers, over 1.4 million last year.

All these people spent more time watching the event as well, with a total 83 million minutes watched, compared to 66 million from last year. Concurrent viewers also saw growth, with the peak reaching 147 thousand viewers at the same time, compared to 142 thousand last year.

The numbers above seem to bode good things for Street Fighter V in terms of its ability to pull viewers — even more so with the launch of the Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition update later this January.
