Street Fighter 6 Will Have Cross-Play According To Streamer Maximilian Dood

Street Fighter fans are probably buzzing with everything they’ve seen or heard about Street Fighter 6 so far. The game was first announced in February, with a “huge” teaser featuring Ryu and Luke. In the end, we found out that Chun-Li and Jamie will also be part of the roster, along with an open-world feature. Most recently, at the Summer Game Fest, we learned that America’s hero Guile will be joining the fray.

However, fans of the series were eagerly awaiting one particular piece of information, which has now seemingly been revealed. According to streamer and fighting game enthusiast Maximilian Dood, Street Fighter 6 will reportedly feature cross-play. Death tweeted the information, saying it came directly from the developers. It’s not hard to believe that the developers could have revealed this to him, given his reputation in the fighting game community.

If you are unfamiliar with the term, rollback netcode is a type of technology that tries to neutralize latency. Simply put, your console essentially predicts what actions your opponent will take during online sessions to avoid input lag. This is especially useful in fighting games like Street Fighter 6, which require precise timing.

Street Fighter 6 looks set to bring back the “street” as a brief glimpse into the gameplay revealed elements of an open-world Metro City that players can traverse and even perform basic moves. Whatever small images of the open-world we saw were reminiscent of the open-world mode that came with Mortal Kombat: Deception and Armageddon.

Unfortunately for Capcom – who seemed to be planning a reveal for individual character reveals – the game’s entire roster had been leaked online. The roster includes familiar faces like Ryu, Ken, Zangief, Dhalsim, Honda, Blanka, Guile, Chun-Li, Cammy, Dee Jay, and Akuma, as well as newer ones like Rashid and Luke. Jamie was only recently introduced, while six of the characters on the leaked roster are completely new. Character descriptions have also been leaked, in case you want to better understand the new fighters.
