Street Fighter 4 PC Coming After Console Release

While the home versions of Street Fighter 4 are slated to arrive in the vague "winter" timeframe, developer Capcom has stepped in to clarify that the estimate only applies to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 editions--not the promised PC iteration.

"[A] PC version is in the works, but will come post-console release," the company told IGN. "'Winter' is the only timing we've given as of yet for console release."

The console-first, PC-later strategy is nothing new to Capcom. Both Lost Planet: Extreme Condition and Devil May Cry 4 debuted on consoles roughly 5-6 months before the PC edition arrived. While a PC release of Resident Evil 5 has not yet been confirmed, many expect a PC version to follow its March 13 arrival on consoles.
