A representative from Capcom also confirmed that the game is not time based exclusive, meaning it will be a PS4 game for its entire existence.
While it seems a good marketing strategy not only for the game but Sony?s PS4 console, Sony is also helping out in the development of the game. In a statement from Capcom, it said ?We?re not talking about how we?re handling post-launch content, but I can say the relationship with Sony does open doors for things we haven?t been able to do in the past. The relationship serves a gameplay and development purpose, and not just a marketing value.?
The Exclusive Street Fighter 5
Unfortunately, all future versions of the Street Fighter 5 game will not appear on the Xbox One console, contrary to rumors that Super Street Fighter 5 will appear on the console. Capcom added ?One comment we see a lot is that something like a Super Street Fighter 5 is going to come out on Xbox. But the reality is that this is a real partnership. We are console exclusive for this franchise for this numbered run.?
