Street Fighter V got off to a bad start: gamers complained about a lack of content and bugs, and sales of the fighting game on release did not meet Capcom‘s expectations. Excellent-selling suits for fighters helped to correct the situation. They brought the company an amount sufficient to start finalizing the game.
This was stated by Maximilian Dood, a streamer popular in the fighting game community. According to him, he received the information directly from Capcom.
According to the streamer, if not for the high sales of costumes, the Street Fighter series “died” and Street Fighter 6 did not come out.
