Capcom is planning to support Street Fighter V “as far as 2020 or so”, according to the game’s producer Yoshinori Ono.

When asked by Japanese news outlet Famitsu (as translated by EventHubs) about the development schedule of Street Fighter V, Ono replied by saying that “It’s not just a 1-2 year thing. We’re looking pretty far ahead … We’ve planned out as far as 2020 or so.” The game’s producer Tomoaki Ayano added to the conversation by saying that “Street Fighter V is a title we’re adding on to as it goes along, so we’re working on it while planning ahead on the best way to develop it further.”

Ono continued to talk about how Capcom aims to make Street Fighter V a stronger eSports title before moving to the next entry in the series. “The more people participate, the bigger tournaments we can host, and the more people are going to watch them, which is directly connected with our sales, and that’s going to decide the future.” Ono concluded.

Capcom has recently banned the game’s latest stage, Skies of Honor, from competitive play in an attempt to make Street Fighter V more tournament-friendly. The Next Street Fighter V official tournament is scheduled to happen at PlayStation Experience, on December 3-4.
