It looks like this hero will only get stronger

Street Fighter 6 beta testing will take place from 7 to 10 October 2022. Eighteen characters will be available in the full version, but it is not yet known how many of them will be in the beta. It is expected that cross-play will also be available during this period. However, Capcom has not yet officially confirmed this information. The release of the project will take place in 2023 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and Microsoft Windows.
