Street Fighter V sold 1.4 million by the end of March0 Comments
The newest entry in the acclaimed fighting game series Street Fighter may have had a divisive launch, to say the least, but it seems that it performed fairly well regardless. Capcom has revealed that Street Fighter V sold 1.4 million copies by the end of March, just a month and a half after launching. It's not quite the 2 million sales that Capcom was hoping for out of the title, but I'd say that number is nothing to scoff at in the face of all the criticism the game has received for its lack of content.
If you want some context for those sales numbers, the game's predecessor, Street Fighter IV, has only sold 3.4 million copies in its lifetime, and that's across more platforms. Selling over a third of that in just a month and a half ain't too shabby. There's still plenty of content on the way for the title over the coming months, with the game's third DLC character planned to release this month and a proper story mode coming in June. Capcom also revealed that their profits have actually risen, with net sales reaching $714 million, a 20% increase from the same period of the previous fiscal year.
