Street Fighter 6 is proving to be a very popular release on PC with the fighting game reaching a peak player number of over 65,000 on June 2, 2023, on Steam according to SteamDB. That almost doubles the peak of Mortal Kombat 11 on the platform, which reached 35,147 players at one point, and dwarfs Tekken 7’s peak of 18,966 active users.

Street Fighter 5 only ever reached a maximum of 14,783 at the same time, so this is a huge gain for its successor. This makes Street Fighter 6’s launch undoubtedly the most successful release on PC from any of the big three traditional fighting game giants.

However, even Street Fighter 6 can’t compete with the launch of MultiVersus’ beta test in 2022, which drew 153,433 concurrent players on Steam at its peak. That comparison, of course, isn’t entirely fair, since MultiVersus was available completely for free, while Street Fighter 6 must be purchased for a price of $59.99.

In any case, it seems like the recent trend of more and more people being interested in fighting games on PC seems to continue, which bodes well for the release of Mortal Kombat 1 as well as Tekken 8, the next iterations of their respective series.
