More Capcom Developement Updates: More 2D Fighter Plans
Seems like every year we hear this rumor again (actually, it’s almost been a year ago exactly since the last mention), but In the new issue of EGM magazine (source) the rumor mill section points to a possible 2007 release of the next chapter in the Street Fighter series… Street Fighter IV. Supposedly, this information is based off of trusted industry insiders.
I would like to believe this rumor as I am a huge fan of Street Fighter 3: Third Strike and I would love to see the series taken to the next level if the correct direction is taken.
However, it seems that mosat every member involved in the original development of the best Street Fighter games have now moved onto other projects. (Such as Super Dragonball Z)
There was also as very strong rumor over a year ago that there was going to be a Street Fighter game that took place between Street Fighter Alpha and Street Fighter 2. As interesting as that sounded, we never saw any results from this as well.
At this point the only 2D fighting games that Capcom seems to be interested in is quick remixes such as Capcom Fighting Jam.
However, I would absolutely love be wrong.
