Since its launch back in February, it would seem that Capcom is now taking into account the amount of criticism that has been addressed for Street Fighter V.
In a March financial results briefing from Capcom chairman and CEO Kenzo Tsujimoto, a summary has noted that there was indeed a lack of sufficient content upon the titles launch. As such, the summary said that it should be in Capcoms best interest to spend a little more time in future development, to ensure the company is running a “high quality title” that will perform well globally. It is worth noting that this is not a press release, but instead a discussion to investors and resulted in tweaks to how they’ve budgeted in the future.
For example, some aspects of “Street Fighter V” needed more polish, such as the lack of content and server issues at launch. Accordingly, we feel it’s better to give a little more time to
development than before, and have made slight adjustments to our portfolio. Profits may take one or two years longer to stack up than initially expected, however we will be firmly
strengthening our brands.
“We were so excited to get the game in the hands of our fans,” Ono said. “…. we did our best to include as much content as we could for the February launch, but obviously some players expected more.”
