It remains to be seen how players respond to Street Fighter 6 as the initial response for Street Fighter 5 wasn’t really great. However, updates like Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition and Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition were much better received. There were reports about Street Fighter 6 development after a massive data breach at Capcom, which revealed listings for Street Fighter 6 and Dragon’s Dogma 2.
