The countdown timer has finally struck 0. This is everything we’ve learned from the Capcom announcement today!
I feel sorry for the person who was in charge of ensuring the countdown website was functional. Why? Because all of the announcements made it to Twitter before the website refreshed. Mostly by third party groups and individuals.
Firstly, Capcom Collection was announced by the official PlayStation Twitter and will consist of a pretty decent list of titles that we haven’t seen an update from in many, MANY years.
Capcom Fighting Collection delivers 10 head-to-head arcade classics with extra features and online play for all games with rollback netcode: https://t.co/44iGTz1chf

The tweet was then followed up by an official tweet from the official Capcom US Twitter a couple of minutes later with a link that provides more details on the new title.

Continuing the trend of early announcements, Geoff Keighley broke the news a little earlier than the official Capcom accounts with the tweet that Street Fighter 6 had been announced for a Summer 2022 release (Winter 2022 if you’re in the southern hemisphere).

The announcement was then double confirmed by the official Capcom US twitter a couple of minutes later.
The original countdown website has now been updated to a Street Fighter 6 landing page that will allow for fans of the franchise to keep up to date!
