Super SFIV is final game in series

Producer confirms that Street Fighter IV is drawing to a close

Super Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono has told OXM that there are no plans to continue the series.

While Ono keeps the possibility of future updates via DLC open, he also admits that he doesn't want to repeat 'mistakes Capcom has made in the past'.

"I have no intention of carrying on Street Fighter IV into Hyper Street Fighter IV or Ultra Street Fighter IV, because I'm aware of the mistakes Capcom has made in the past," Ono explains.

"So whether it would be a different IP or another Street Fighter, we'd like to keep options open. But in terms of Street Fighter IV, this is definitive... Super Street Fighter IV should be the distinctive end.

"Obviously there can be updates via DLC so perhaps in 2011, we could upload a patch for Super Street Fighter IV 2011 edition that would have tuning and balancing. But as a packaged product, I think this is the last."
