Street Fighter II not hitting XBL in Q2?

Capcom's brawler appears to be on the verge of missing its anticipated release window for third time.


When Capcom first announced in January that it was bringing Street Fighter II' Hyper Fighting to the Xbox 360, it said the game would be available "in early 2006." Later that month, the publisher adjusted that time frame to "Q1 2006." Late last month, when GameSpot previewed the title, Capcom then indicated a Q2 release for the game.

With time rapidly running short in the second quarter of the year, GameSpot asked Capcom if the game's release window had been pushed back yet again. A representative replied, "Capcom has not yet announced a specific release date or pricing for this game."

Earlier this week, some Street Fighter fans were buzzing over a July 30 release date for the game listed on the official Australian Xbox Web site, but that entry has since been changed to read simply "2006." The American Xbox Web site is a little more precise at the moment, giving a "Summer 2006" date for the game. This year, the last day of summer is September 23.
