Street Fighter 5 will punch onto SteamOS soon

Street Fighter V will only release on PC and PlayStation 4 at launch, but Capcom has confirmed it is working with Valve to make a SteamOS version happen sooner than later.

With Street Fighter V hours away from release, Capcom has released some good news to anyone using the SteamOS platform. Those users on Valve's Steam Machines will have their own version of Street Fighter V to look forward to at some point in the future.

"Our development team is working closely with Valve engineers to bring the full Street Fighter V experience onto the SteamOS platform," reads the Steam Announcements post. "This will be a free update to all Street Fighter V Steam players and will be released this Spring. More news will be shared soon, so stay tuned."

Presumably, this SteamOS version of SFV will also be able to play nice with the PS4 and PC versions of the game and offer the same quality of cross-play. No date has been given, but Shacknews will monitor this situation. Street Fighter V arrives tomorrow on PC and PlayStation 4 and our review is currently live.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        I'm really curious what kind of financials are in Valves books for the whole Steam Machine/SteamOS SKU. I'm going to assume some huge losses at this point in time.

          It was a defensive move with the ms store stuff. Threat is gone so no one gives any f's

          Doesn't really matter. They made that move because MS was hinting to close their environment to the windows app store. Even if they lost money, it was spent to keep their windows publishing stronghold.

          Remember when Steam came out on the PS3? I figure SteamOS is Valve's justification to make sure they never have to rely on some other incompetent person's backend infrastructure again.
