To contextualize, Street Fighter V it sold close to 1.4 million copies in almost 3 months, which was below Capcom’s expectations. Despite the criticism, this installment became the most successful in the franchise, with more than 6 million units sold throughout its life cycle.
Of course, everything seems to indicate that the most recent title of the IP will be able to surpass its predecessor. A few months ago, Haruhiro Tsujimoto, representative director of the Japanese company, announced that they hope to sell 10 million copies. Will he get it? Only time will tell.
