Street Fighter 5 sales reach 1.4M on PC and PS4

Capcom was able to sell an impressive number of copies, even though it only released Street Fighter 5 on two major platforms.

13

Street Fighter 5 has sold 1.4 million units across both PlayStation 4 and PC, Capcom has revealed.

The 1.4 million units combines both retail and digital downloads across both platforms, although Capcom doesn’t disclose which medium reigned supreme.

Its previous iteration, Street Fighter IV, sold a total of 3.4 million units in its lifetime. This makes the 1.4 million units sold for Street Fighter 5 that much more impressive considering it’s only been out for roughly three months, and of course, the fact that it launched as an incomplete game which Capcom continues to add content to on a regular basis.

Another piece of the puzzle that shows how impressive its sales have been is the fact Capcom was able to sell 1.4 million units just focusing on the PS4 and PC platforms. We’re sure this number could have increased substantially if an Xbox One version was also released.

        it is, but it's still short of their 2M copies sold expectations

          Which is what happens when you don't put a game on both platforms

            I'm sure that was in their projection. If it was on both I'd add another 1M to the total

              ^as someone who has never played any street fighter, hearing about how this new one is really good might get me to jump in. Except, no, the game is neutered. Maybe on a sale.

            which is fine because I assume they received incentives from sony

      I was playing through the "story mode" last week. It is such a joke.

      I picked it up on release, played it for a week and put it down. Maybe it'll be a full game in June. It felt a little more polished than the Rising Thunder alpha.

      That's like selling 700,000 complete games.
