Capcom will make a new Street Fighter V announcement in November and December, series producer Yoshinori Ono said at EVO 2019.
In an English-written statement prepared by Ono at the start of the Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition grand finals, he said:
Dear EVO, Joey, and Street Fighter fans around the world. We sincerely apologize to everyone who was looking forward to a big announcement this year. We wanted to put together something else for you guys, but it didn’t quite work out. Trust me, we feel your disappointment.
There is nothing in Blanka’s pocket today. But please look forward to a new Street Fighter V announcement in November and December. We will make sure Blanka has a gift in his pocket at this year’s Capcom Cup at the Novo in Los Angeles. Looking forward to seeing you all there. You are all invited. Until then, please the new characters, the EVO finals, and the rest of the Capcom Pro Tour season. Thank you very much.
The latest characters to join Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, E. Honda, Lucia, and Poison, will launch on August 4.
