Street Fighter series producer Yoshinori Ono has made it clear he does not want the main Street Fighter series to end at number IV.
"Realistically speaking, developing a title for next-gen consoles requires a huge amount of staff members, and a large sum of money. The issue of money also applies to everyone else, as it’ll be required to invest in a new console, game, and arcade stick." Ono said.
The issue of money has been brought up in the past, when Ono tweeted that he had no budget for a Street Fighter V on next generation consoles.
"I don't have R&D budget and staff," He said in response to a fan who asked if he was secretly working on Street Fighter V for next-gen. He further explained that his team is now focused entirely on Ultra Street Fighter IV, which was announced at EVO this year.
Ultra Street Fighter IV is in development for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC with no plans to bring the updated game to next-generation consoles. The game includes five new characters, six fresh stages, and a host of gameplay tweaks. For more information, check out GameSpot's interview with Capcom about the pack.
