However, he stated that the delay was due to development-related issues. Still, Capcom is yet to announce Street Fighter 6 publicly, but from what Dusk Golem stated, the announcement could be further away.
Rumor – Street Fighter 6 Delayed Beyond 2021, New Director Appointed To ‘Fix’ Sequelhttps://t.co/LH8AQaTKQK#StreetFighter6 #Capcom #Delay #StreetFighterV #Season5 #PS4 #PS5 #Rumor pic.twitter.com/FMFiWlhDHo

On Twitter, Dusk Golem extensively brawled about Capcom delaying it out to 2021, saying it was according to the game’s producer, Yoshinori Ono. Speaking on that, Golem explained that the producer focused on the mechanics within the game, which didn’t sit well with the internal system.
As a result, Capcom took a rash decision and demoted Ono and designated the project to another person to fix the game, which led to the game’s postponement.
Here’s what Golem has to post on his twitter: ‘As Capcom is trending for Street Fighter stuff, though I’m not that a Street Fighter fan, I can mention for the unexpected Street Fighter 5.
(3/3) talking about this stuff makes people to ask you about it, and really I don't care that much about fighting games (though my brother loves them). For what it's worth, I've heard the extra year & new director/fixes & direction they've taken it have been doing wonders.

He continued saying: ‘the most basic gist of it is Street Fighter 6 was scheduled to launch next year, but internally it didn’t fly.’
Still, Golem tweets speculate that Capcom’s corporate officer, Midori Yuasa, now handles the game.
Moreover, Street Fighter 5 recently got one year of new content, and so much more!
• Dan – A mainstay from the Street Fighter Alpha series and last appearing in Street Fighter IV, Dan Hibiki will be bringing his (over) confidence and iconic “Taunt” to Street Fighter V. A training partner of Ryu and Ken, Dan considers himself well-equipped to “school” other players with his unique Saikyo-Ryu (“Strongest Style”) fighting style. Release timing: Winter 2020 • Rose – Rose is a fortune-telling fan-favorite character who also previously starred in the Alpha series and Street Fighter IV. Using her tarot cards, Rose will arrive armed with a variety of unique special moves and plans to channel her Soul Power energy into Street Fighter V. Release timing: Spring 2021 • Oro – Last appearing in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, Oro is an ancient martial arts master who exists as an immortal hermit. He restricts one of his arms from use to give his opponents an advantage, but that won’t stop Oro from being one of the most well-trained and powerful fighters in Street Fighter V. Release timing: Summer 2021 • Akira – First introduced in Capcom’s 1997 fighting game Rival Schools: United by Fate, Akira Kazama is preparing to make her Street Fighter debut. As an acquaintance of Sakura, Akira has previous ties to the Street Fighter universe and is gearing up to bring her biker style look and clever gimmicks to Street Fighter V. Release timing: Summer 2021 • ???? – You may also remember we previously said there would be five characters for Season 5…, but we’re not quite ready to announce our fifth yet. Stay tuned for info on that later on!
