Capcom made the decision to produce Street Fighter V as a PS4 and PC only title, but why?
Street Fighter V’s Executive Producer Yoshinori Ono sat down with Gamesradar to explain why Capcom did this move, and his answer was to “unify the community.”
‘We wanted to really unify the community, in previous titles we’d say ‘we’re having a tournament’ and it’s like ‘which version? Is it PC, Xbox, PlayStation? Which joystick should I bring? Which framerate should I practice in?’ It was all over the place. We wanted to have it be one place to play Street Fighter.”
He continued to express the support Sony gave Capcom to be able to achieve what they planned.
“Ultimately, the support we were able to get – not just in terms of community building support, but also technological support and advice – Sony was able to provide to us. It’s really helped us achieve that goal. It’s all on one place and it’s one community and everyone can play together.”
Street Fighter V is set to launch in 2016 for PC and PS4.
