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.
