Capcom Hiring For Next-Gen Fighter?

Well, if it isn't Street Fighter V, what is it?

Street Fighter series producer Yoshinori Ono has revealed that Capcom is cranking away on a new, currently unannounced fighting game. The news came via Ono's Twitter page, where he had this to say:

"I want.... no, Capcom wants Game Designer and programmer for New Fighting Game. Its location at Tokyo or Osaka Studio."

When asked if the game would be coming to next-gen consoles, Ono said that he doesn't know what the target platforms are. But at this point, and considering that the title appears to be in early development, one would assume Capcom is targeting the PS4 and Xbox One. However, don't think it's Street Fighter V; Capcom producer Tomoaki Ayano was quoted as saying that it would take "until the year 2018" to complete and release. And Ono has recently said that the company doesn't currently have the resources for it.

So, maybe this is a new IP...?

I somehow suspect the next wave of fighters will be cross platform, and for two reasons. Fighters don't need a whole lot of processing to work. Fighters now require a PS+ to play online. I don't think the whole fighting community will be ready to drop free online play all at once.

Maybe Mortal Kombat Versus Street Fighter is a go.

That would be an awesome VS! At long last we will see Evil Ryu and Akuma on their slaughtering glory! :D

Also World, your avatar pic is sexy! Now I want Persona 5 more than before! A whole generation without a proper Persona game! :/

puke, sorry I just don't care to see Ryu's and Chun Li's heads get ripped off. If they do it, they'd have to make it T for Teen =p

Thanks Yukian, I'm pumped for more Persona too.

The only reason I mention MK is cuz the dev said they would like to see a Versus Street Fighter game in the series. I wouldn't mind taking off Ryu's head, he's such a b*tch.

But we may get shredding clothes and we'll see Cammy and R.Mika nude! :D

Now that you say it, it'd be pretty shocking to see beheading or something like that... guess a T will do, then... :/

wish more companies would do a 3D brawler in the lights of the arkham series, or even good old mortal kombat shaolin monks!
even xmen origins wolverine was a decent game, buggy, VERY buggy, but a metric sh*t ton of FUN!
quite gory too which always helps.........

I hope it's Street Fighter V. I don't want another generic anime VS game.
