Capcom announced today that the recently launched Street Fighter 6 surpassed two million copies sold within a month of its launch. The game launched on June 2 and received a lot of praise (including from GamesBeat, who gave it full five stars).
Street Fighter 6 cross the million player mark a few days after its launch, according to Capcom. The company also recently revealed that Monster Hunter Rise has sold over 13 million copies, and before that, Resident Evil 4 Remake has sold over 4 million copies.
Capcom revealed earlier this year that Street Fighter V’s lifetime sales have reached 7 million copies over 7 years. In a recent interview with Famitsu, Capcom President Haruhiro Tsujimoto said the company hopes to sell 10 million copies of the sixth installment. This would bring sales of the Street Fighter series closer to those of Capcom’s other franchises, such as Resident Evil and Monster Hunter.
Also this week, Capcom announced the first fighter DLC for Street Fighter 6: Rashid, which will be released in-game on July 24.
