Super Street Fighter IV
Street Fighter 5 is Not a Thing Yet, Ono Confirms

If you were hoping that Ultra Street Fighter IV might be the perfect game to pave the way for Super Street Fighter V, carry on hoping. It ain't going to happen, or at least not yet. Asked on Twitter if SFIV overlord Yoshinori Ono and his team is "secretly working on Street Fighter V", Ono responded with a claim that the research and development budget and staff isn't currently in place for a new Street Fighter title. Here's the tweet:

Ono and Capcom lifted the lid on Ultra Street Fighter IV during Evo 2013 at the weekend, igniting speculation that Street Fighter V could be next on the agenda, however Producer Rey Jimenez says that Capcom is "still very early in development of the initial content" on the Ultra SFIV update, which is where the SF dev team's focus lies for the time being.

"This personally isn't my title, but I know that the release questions that you guys are asking about haven't been determined yet." Jimenez wrote in a thread on the Capcom Unity blog. "Probably won't have anything solid until next year."

Ultra Street Fighter IV is coming in early 2014.

I'm refusing to buy any more street fighter games. They're milking this harder than cod.

Maybe if they hadn't used those resources up on yet another Street Fighter IV rehash they could have put them towards Street Fighter V.

Good news. It's still too soon for SF 5. Leave that for a new generation of fighters on the next consoles I say.

Anyone who was buying Streetfighter games on SNES decades ago will buy this too. Count me in.

BTW, EVO2013 was great! Check out some of the footage!

....really, no SF5 because the are working on this nonsense, its really starting to seem like a complete waste of money...but wait 4 of the 5 new character already have character models and move sets because they where in SFxT. So why is this coming out next year.....i might be to busy playing killer instinct in "early 2014" to even care about a game that has been going since 2010

You guys may not care for another updated version of the "same old game", but the fighting game community will welcome it with opens arms.

Wow it seems people are okay with them releasing super,mega,ultra editions of a game. That is DLC, the stupidity in these parts of the forum is ridiculous.

@12 2 DLCs? and they're charging $15 for characters that what, you might use once or twice to try out? is anyone really going to main hugo? is anyone maining evil ryu, yin or yun? each addition barely brings anything new to the table, arcade edition brought 4 characters now this brings 5? And these aren't just dlc they're standalone games too, SF IV, Super SF IV, Super SF IV Arcade Edition and now Ultra SF4. That's four different versions of essentially the same game. I understand they tweak and balance the game, I understand it's popular at fighting tournaments, but the only people that are getting fucked over here are the people supporting their products because we're slaves to consumerism, if you want to stay up to date with the community then you have to keep buying the newest version of their product.

It's not ripping fans off if the true fans enjoy what they are buying and ask for more. You call yourself a fan, and yet all you do is whine and moan when more content is brought to you.

@15 you have no idea.and talk so much useless things...sad.
yes Sako ( this year top 8 at evo ) is maining evil ryu,kazununko is maining yun (he also placed really well at evo this year) And yin ..many player main him,pr balrog use him as his third main character,poongko use him as his second main character.
Its a fighting games!!Its all about the charcaters and the balance ? All the fans want is a new balance and new characters.
I hope that street fighter 5 is the same just with many more characters.
Dont talk if you dont nothing about the community.i bet you are just an angry guy that cant get all ssf4 achievements lol

@15 - You don't have to buy it? And its clearly not marketed for people like you ... it will sell because its what people want.
Similar thing happened in the 90's, people still bought them, because its what the fans want.

2, 3, 9, 11, 15, 16, 17, and 19..
Why are you even posting your garbage here? Some of you made it pretty clear you know minimal about SF4 and it's going-ons.

Go back to that generic, MILKED OUT shooter franchise I'm sure you uptight losers like to play, Noobs.

Wait so let me get this straight, the true 'fans' want them to release so many versions of the same game with extra characters? So stuff they could've included in the original they spread across 3-4 games. But that's not DLC right? No way.

Zombiefan you should check out the breakdown of what it costs to add extra characters to a fighting game.
There's a kickstarter (or there was not sure how far they are) for skullgirls in which they make a breakdown on how much it costs to create and add a character to a game.
Roughly 150.000 dollar
48.000 for staffsalaries times 8 people for 10 weeks
30.000 for animation
4.000 for voicerecording
2.000 for hitboxcontracting
5.000 for audioimplantation contracting
20.000 for QA testing
10.000 for firstparty certification
these are offcourse different for Capcom since certain things will be done inhouse however balancing is going to take a bit more work since the roster in Skullgirls is only 8 character to the 34 in SFIV.
I know Capcom has it dubious decisions and you can't blame them for trying to make money off us, but I'd hardly call it taking advantage of us.

You could simply not have made the endproduct in one go because it would have never excisted that way.
Don't forget Ono took a risk bringing back Street Fighter.

@27 Capcom was done with SSf4 with 38 characters which its really nice.
BUT THE FANS wanted new characters and big balance because some character was just way to strong.I never saw a game which got big DLC's for FREE.So why should capcom do that? They put 9 Extra characters in 4 years!what the hell is your problem? 2 DLC'S in 4 years,and you are crying?Man whats wrong with you.THE FANS want it so badly so they got it and now we are all happy and hype as hell. Its not like Call Of Duty where they bring everygame 5 map packs that nobody really ask for.And i dont want to talk about battlefield 4,they announced a dlc map pack for guys that do a pre order of that game!Yep Game is coming in 4 month , there is no way to put that dlc in that full game ...
Thats milking!A Season pass is milking ! But 2 DLCS in 4 years?Thats not milking.
@26 so true !!

@29 My problem is that the so called 'DLC' came in the form of a disc with a nice retail price to go with it. DLC is usually something they add to an already released game. Adding 9 characters in the form of DLC is a lot different than adding a 9 characters to a game and reselling it with Super, Arcade edition and finally Ultra in the name.
