It appears that plans and information on the next installment of the Street Fighter franchise may have revealed, as a new rumor is circulating online that Street Fighter 6 may be cross platform — with the information supposedly coming from the recent Capcom hack attack that happened this past week that led to several personal data and information being compromised.
Here’s the tweet on the scoop obtained by Twitter user /PPG/, which should be taken with a grain of salt as this is still a rumor.
Ragnar has just released more onto the internet, this time including emails regarding #StreetFighterVI.
Email itself seems to be about progression on 3D modelling, but this is still groundbreaking nonetheless. VI confirmed! pic.twitter.com/hG0dr2F6Br

While the validity of the information is questionable and the images are about early progression on making the game, what’s most interesting about this post is that Street Fighter 6 is cross-gen — with the game’s released listed for platforms in the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. That would certainly be a big change for the sequel, as Street Fighter V was released exclusively for the PS4 and PC in 2016 and left Xbox One users in the dust. Now that SFV is approaching its final stretch with the impending release of Season 5 and its last batch of DLC characters and stages, the spotlight and attention for most fans turns to the next installment of the series. Only time will tell for sure if these leaks and rumors hold any water once Capcom releases official information.

Street Fighter V is currently available for PS5 and PC.
