I just fucking hope Capcom doesn’t suddenly decide to shift the series around timeline-wise again like we’ve had so many times before
Just think about it:
Started with SF1 -> follow that with SF2 -> jump back to before the start with SFA -> jump way past everything with SF3 -> jump back but follow SF2 up with SF4 -> somehow get a direct sequel with SF5
Now imagine should SF6 happen they could place the game ANYWHERE inbetween those, or just say “fuck it” and go back to even before SFA. The inconsistent timeline progression is retarded and only creates confusion for those trying to follow the chronology. At this pace we’re gonna be approaching The Legend of Zelda levels of the series jumping around back and forth in terms of sequels and prequels.
Really hope that is not the case with 6 and Capcom will finally have the balls to retread the SF3 era properly, without forcefully axing more than half of the characters people have come to know and love
Street Fighter really is inconsistent with character progression when you think about it.
Some actually get meaningful development, others feel like they’re stuck in a fucking limbo for no reason whatsoever, the rest do not even have clear goals for them being in the story or the roster
