Street Fighter 6 Sells 1 Million Copies 

Street Fighter 6 is already one of the most popular fighting games less than a week out from release.

Capcom’s latest release, Street Fighter 6, has significantly impacted gaming, selling over 1 million units worldwide in under a week. 

Capcom’s latest release, Street Fighter 6, has made a grand entrance into the gaming world, selling over 1 million units worldwide in a record time. This achievement is a testament to the enduring popularity of the Street Fighter series and Capcom’s ability to consistently deliver engaging and innovative gaming experiences.

It has been met with broad acclaim, thanks to its innovative features such as the World Tour Mode and Battle Hub, as well as its improved audio accessibility settings. These features cater to a diverse range of players, from beginners to seasoned fighters, contributing to its impressive sales figures.

Not a One-Off Success

The success of Street Fighter 6 is not an isolated event but part of a larger trend of successful Capcom releases. For instance, since its debut in 2004, the Monster Hunter series has grown to include 59 titles and has sold over 92 million units. Similarly, the Resident Evil series, which pioneered the survival horror genre, has grown to 168 titles and sold over 142 million units worldwide. While these are aggregate figures for entire franchises rather than a singular game, it does put things in better perspective.

The success of Street Fighter 6 is also reflected in Capcom’s commitment to esports. The company has announced that it will provide over $2 million in prize money for the Capcom Pro Tour 2023, featuring Street Fighter 6. This marks the company’s largest-ever event prize pool.

As Street Fighter 6 continues to gain momentum, it will be interesting to see how it compares to other successful Capcom franchises in the long run. Will it surpass the sales of the latest entries in the Monster Hunter or Resident Evil franchises? Only time will tell.
