Today June 2nd, 2022 Sony held a State of Play presentation focused on third-party published titles, along with upcoming PS VR2 games. The live-streamed digital broadcast is part of this summer’s, Summer Game Fest. With that, we got a fresh look at upcoming PS5 and PS VR2 titles including Street Fighter 6.
The new Street Fighter 6 trailer shows off lots of gameplay. Along with fighters Jamie, Luke, Chun-Li, and Ryu. The main headline from the trailer is the new linear campaign. Along with a brand new battle hub. It is not clear how either mode will work yet. The trailer ends with a release window of 2023. So fans of the series will have to wait a little bit longer for this new installment.
Following the State of Play Microsoft confirmed Street Fighter 6 will be headed to Xbox in 2023. This will be the first new entry on the platform in nearly 14 years.
