Capcom says sorry for Street Fighter 5 silence

Capcom has issued an apology over its ongoing radio silence regarding Street Fighter 5’s forthcoming new features and DLC character releases.

In a blog post, the company admits it needs to improve its communication with fans going forward and address the major concerns within the community.

“We’ll be the first to admit that we can improve our communication with the community,” the post reads, “in terms of where our priorities lie around the game and status updates.  We plan to change that in the coming weeks and months and will work to quickly address topics that come up in the community as best we can.”

The post goes on to address some of the key questions about the game. Firstly, Ibuki, the next DLC character to come to the game, delayed at the last moment recently, will now launch in the last week of June, Capcom hopes.


“We are doing our best to release the content in the last week of June,” hardly filling the fans with confidence.

The post concludes with an acknowledgement the team is investigating reports of input delay in online matches and also that rage quitting – while improved since the introduction of stricter punishments – continues to be an issue.

It’s a shame that Street Fighter 5 continues to be plagued with issues, after being met with such anticipation from fans. Hopefully Capcom can work quickly to alleviate concerns and deliver the product fans expected to receive at launch.
