Street Fighter 5 Won’t See Any Balance Changes at Launch; Says Capcom

Street Fighter V

Capcom’s Street Fighter 5 is out in the wild with some players already playing the game. Since these players have almost a week to learn about the game’s new mechanics, they will obviously be on an advantage when the game officially releases on Feb. 16, 2016.

As reported by Shoryuken; according to tournament organizer Joe ‘LI Joe’ Ciaramelli, the game’s day-1 patch may completely rebalance the game, rendering all discovered mechanics completely fruitless. However, it seems like this will not be the case as noted by Capcom.

Following the earlier reports stating that Street Fighter 5 will be compatible with Playstation 3 controllers after a day-1 patch, it was believed that Capcom will also bring some balancing changes to the game. According to a Capcom representative, Street Fighter 5 right now includes the game’s day-1 patch which essentially makes it the same version which everyone will be playing when the game officially releases:

[Street Fighter V] right now includes the Day 1 update and it will be the same version as what everyone will be playing when the game officially releases.

So yeah! If you were rooting for balance changes, you are out of luck. The players, on the other hand, who got early access to the game are in for a treat – at least for a few days until Capcom rolls out some balancing changes.

Street Fighter 5 is scheduled to release on Feb. 16, 2016 for PC and Playstation 4 with cross-play functionality between the two platforms.
