Xbox Will Never Get a Version of Street Fighter 5, Says Capcom Rep
Capcom indicates Street Fighter won't be on Xbox until Street Fighter 6 at the earliest.
Capcom has poured cold water on speculation that future iterations of Street Fighter 5 could appear on Xbox One.
The latest entry in the company’s long-running fighting game franchise was revealed in December as a PlayStation console exclusive. However, due to Capcom's history of iterating its Street Fighter games, some fans suspected that a possible Super or Ultra edition of Street Fighter 5 could be a way to bring the game to Xbox.

However, a Capcom representative has told GameSpot that Street Fighter V, in any iteration, would never ship on Xbox One.
"One comment we see a lot is that something like a Super Street Fighter 5 is going to come out on Xbox," said the representative. "But the reality is that this is a real partnership. We are console exclusive for this franchise for this numbered run."
Speaking about the close relationship between itself and Sony, Capcom has said the partnership will yield benefits beyond marketing support.
"We’re not talking about how we’re handling post-launch content, but I can say the relationship with Sony does open doors for things we haven’t been able to do in the past," the representative said.
"The relationship serves a gameplay and development purpose, and not just a marketing value."
Xbox games executive Phil Spencer previously responded to the announcement that Street Fighter 5 is coming exclusively to PlayStation 4 for its console release.
"Business deals happen," he said. "We won't do all of them. When we have a first party franchise in a genre I'd rather invest in ours."
"There is a mix of deals to do," he said. "But making sure we own IP [that] Xbox gamers love is critical [in my opinion]."
Spencer went on to say: "I'd love it if Xbox fans could play all the games, but business just makes some deals happen. It's all part of competition."
