Street Fighter 6 hits 1m players after strong launch weekend

Punching above its weight.

Street Fighter 6 is off to a strong start, and has clocked up a million players already following its launch weekend.

Capcom announced the player milestone via Twitter this morning, and celebrated the news with a piece of congratulatory artwork - which you can see above.

Total sales for the Street Fighter series to date have now exceeded 50m units, Capcom also said.

Street Fighter 6 launched worldwide last Friday, 2nd June, on PC, PlayStation and Xbox.

Over the weekend, PC player figures shown via Steam revealed that Street Fighter 6 had achieved a player concurrent figure nearly double the best of its fighting genre rivals.

More players were playing Street Fighter 6 than had ever logged on concurrently to Mortal Kombat 11 or Tekken 7 - and by quite some margin.

Back in 2016, Capcom seemed more cautious when celebrating 1.4m sales of Street Fighter 5 - a figure achieved over the course of six weeks, rather than just a few days.

All in all, Street Fighter 6 appears to be doing the business for Capcom. It's also a very good game in general - one that "rights the wrongs of its predecessor while dragging the famous fighting game franchise kicking and screaming into the modern era," according to Eurogamer's Street Fighter 6 review.
