With a ton of free-to-play games taking hold of the market, people have become quite skeptical about the newly announced games that have the potential to survive as an F2P title.
Recently announced Street Fighter V has also suffered from the same dilemma, as a lot of people were asking Capcom to clarify whether the game will be an F2P title or not when some rumors started to go around that it will be released as one.
Capcom has broken its silence on the matter to clarify the situation once and for all. Speaking to the famous Japanese Magazine Famitsu, producer of Street Fighter V, Yoshinori Ono confirmed that the game will not be a free-to-play title.
Let me set this straight: Street Fighter V is a packaged game. Not free-to-play. The SFV news today about a pay to win model is not accurate and isn’t something we’re planning for.
It is a pretty clear answer by the producer and will bring rest to the rumors that have been flying around since last couple of days.
The announcement of Street Fighter V was scheduled to happen at PlayStation Experience event but it was leaked a couple of days early on the web, revealing that it will be console exclusive to PlayStation 4.
There isn’t a lot of information available at this point regarding the new entry in the popular fighting series but we do know that Charlie Nash will be making a comeback after a very long time.
