Street Fighter V NEEDS a knockout this EVO

July 14, 2017 1 min read

EVO returns to Las Vegas this weekend. Once again the best in the world will gather to do battle in gaming's popular punch-ups. This year's competition could be a defining moment for Capcom's Street Fighter V, a game that is most assuredly not dead, but is certainly unwell.

The launch of SFV last year went badly. For a game that Capcom planned to make a platform for many years, they turned off a huge chunk of their audience in month one with the decision to bang the game out in time for Capcom Pro Tour and EVO qualification, and thento add features to it afterward. They were open about this plan, but they should've known better than to expect that openness to placate consumers.
