The ongoing Capcom leak drama continues. Hacker group Ragnar Locker has released more information taken from Capcom's servers, this time emails that appear to confirm the existence of Street Fighter VI.
What do we know about Street Fighter VI?
At the moment, very little indeed. The emails leaked by Ragnar Locker confirm the existence of Street Fighter VI and state that it's coming to current-gen and next-gen platforms. As Twitter user pokeprotos points out, the emails themselves - much of which are in Japanese - pertain to 3D modelling procedures and not to any more juicy info about the game itself, but they do at least confirm its existence. It'll be coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC at an unconfirmed date.
Ragnar has just released more onto the internet, this time including emails regarding #StreetFighterVI.— /PPG/ (@pokeprotos) November 18, 2020
Email itself seems to be about progression on 3D modelling, but this is still groundbreaking nonetheless. VI confirmed! pic.twitter.com/hG0dr2F6Br
A translation posted by pokeprotos points to an "outsourced deliverable management site" with a heading marked "deliverable content", under which is written "model data". There are also a couple of dates that suggest this work was undertaken in early October, which could mean that development on Street Fighter VI is well underway at this point. Of course, we don't have anything official to go on, so take this with a pinch of salt. However, this leak does come from the same group that Capcom itself confirmed had stolen its data, so that lends the Street Fighter VI leak some legitimacy.
What's the background to this Capcom leak?
Earlier this month, ransomware group Ragnar Locker hacked into Capcom servers and stole a huge amount of data. This data included not only project information but also personal information pertaining to employees - both current and former - and their families. Capcom is currently investigating the true scope of the theft, but estimates that in a worst-case scenario, around 350,000 pieces of personal data - including that of customers and shareholders - could have been leaked. It's not clear what else Ragnar Locker could have in its possession, but expect to see more Capcom projects leak in the coming days and weeks. We'll have more for you as we get it.
