Capcom’s Digital Media Specialist, Haunts, has revealed some interesting details about the PC version of Ultra Street Fighter IV. According to Haunts, Ultra Street Fighter IV will be dropping GFWL for Steamworks. This, of course, did not shock us as Capcom has been using Steamworks in almost all its latest PC titles. And we are glad for that. After all, one of the worst things of both SSF4: AE and SF4 was GFWL (for a lot of reasons).
As Haunts confirmed when some fans asked him about that topic:
“It’s coming to Steam, yes, we’ll be transitioning from GFWL to Steam.”
“Yes the intention is to have them all launch at around the same time. Should have more deets on PC ver soon.”
Okay, that ‘around the same time’ comment sounds fishy. Still, Capcom has not officially delayed the PC version yet so we can all hope that the Japanese company will be able to deliver this time around. But then again, we all know that it will be delayed at the last minute, don’t we?
Kudos to NeoGAF’s member ‘El Sloth’ for spotting this.
Ultra Street Fighter V is currently scheduled for a 2014 release on PC, X360 and PS3!
