Street Fighter 6 sold close to 2.5 million copies since launch

A solid start for the fighting game, if not stellar

Capcom has disclosed some sales numbers in its latest financial report, revealing that Street Fighter 6 has sold 2.47 million units since it launched on June 2, 2023, for PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. That’s a much stronger start than its predecessor had, but that one launched with severe issues that massively slowed down sales, so it’s not that much of an achievement.

The sales trajectory of SF6 is far more comparable to that of Street Fighter 4, which arguably something of a negative sign – back then, fighting games weren’t nearly as widely popular as now, so SF6 should technically be doing better by virtue of the genre having more players now. Be that as it may, SF6 has a long lifespan ahead of itself still.

Street Fighter 6 seems to have had a solid launch.

Resident Evil 4 Remake has added another 1.66 million sales to its total over the past six months, meaning it has now sold 5.45 million units overall. Looking at these numbers, it’s probably safe to assume that Capcom will very gladly keep remaking old Resident Evil games for the foreseeable future.

The MegaMan Battle Network Legacy Collection Vol. 1 and 2, Resident Evil 2, and Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak all sold over one million units each in the same time period as well, marking a pretty successful run for Capcom.

The launch of Exoprimal, a new IP, was mentioned in the report as a highlight of the past six months, but Capcom did not provide any numbers in connection with the title, leaving open if its release was a success or a failure for the company.
