E3 2014: Street Fighter 5 Won't Be Pay-To-Win, Yoshinori Ono Says
Capcom producer says reports today were false, game is in "early planning stages."
The SFV news today about a pay to win model is not accurate and isn't something we're planning for.— Yoshinori Ono (@Yoshi_OnoChin) June 11, 2014
Sorry for the confusion! We're still in early planning stages and will share more at a later date.— Yoshinori Ono (@Yoshi_OnoChin) June 11, 2014
Reports today from Japanese media that unannounced game Street Fighter V will use a "pay-to-win" model are false, Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono said on Twitter.
"The SFV news today about a pay-to-win model is not accurate and isn't something we're planning for," Ono said. "Sorry for the confusion!"
Street Fighter V is not even announced, but Ono teased, "We're still in early planning stages and will share more at a later date."
If you're eager for Street Fighter V, you might want to get comfortable. Last year, Capcom producer Tomoaki Ayano said that the game might not be released until 2018.
The most recent core Street Fighter game was 2009's Street Fighter IV for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
