Street Fighter V started well with 1.4 million copies shipped & sold digitally by the end of March 2016 which was less than two months after launch. Since March there had been a major decline in sales, and by the end of November 2016, that 1.4 million number had stayed the same, which implied that the game had sold less than 100,000 copies since the end of March 2016 number.
After the end of December 2016 update on Capcom’s finance site it now shows that Street Fighter V has hit 1.5 million which means from April 2016 all the way up to the end of 2016, the game sold just over 100,000 copies. With the slow climb to reach 1.5 million, it’s likely that it only just hit 100,000, and not much more than that.
Unless there’s a major price change in 2017, it’s doubtful that Street Fighter V will hit 1.6 million by the end of 2017. I mean they can’t go that much lower with it already being sold brand new on Amazon for $15 and on Amazon UK for £14.99
What do you think Capcom should do with Street Fighter V? Should they make it free to play? Should they allow it to be a PlayStation Plus game to try and increase numbers and hope they buy the DLC? Let us know all your thoughts on the sales disaster of Street Fighter V.
