Street Fighter 5 isn’t out until next year, but series producer Yoshi Ono has plans to keep it rolling for another half a decade.
In an interview with eurogamer, Ono was asked how long it would take before Street Fighter 5’s roster of 16 would catch up to Street Fighter 4’s 44 characters.
“A lot of it will depend on once the game’s out in the wild, and if the model we make comes to fruition and I can be proven right about it being the right choice,” Ono replied.
“Simple maths suggests it’d take five years to get to the roster of Street Fighter 4, and we want to keep the game going for that amount of time. We want to support it as long as we can, we honestly will have to see – we don’t know anymore than anyone else does how it’s going to turn out next February, once we do this completely new way of doing things.”
