Street Fighter 6 will reportedly see the return of rollback netcode from Street Fighter V and cross-play across different platforms.
The confirmation of cross-play comes primarily from fighting game Youtube and Twitch player Maximilian Dood who was invited to a hands-on preview of Street Fighter 6 at Summer Game Fest.
Maximilian says he spoke directly to the developers who confirmed that the game has cross-play across multiple platforms. He announced this news on Twitter:
Confirmed from the devs directly. Street Fighter VI will have cross play.

IGN has also spoken to Street Fighter 6 director Takayuki Nakayama who confirmed that the game will have rollback netcode. He further says that they are developing Street Fighter 6’s rollback from the ground up and it will not be the same as Street Fighter V’s.
“As you know, Street Fighter 5 also had rollback netcode,” Nakayama said. “But in terms of SF6, it will have Rollback netcode, but it will not be the same as what we had in SF5, and this is something that we’re building from scratch.
“There’s a lot of effort being put into the development of the netcode. And it’s not something that only the netcode engineers are involved in. We’re involving the battle team to participate in that development to ensure that the experience is seamless and that it actually feels good. We’re working very hard towards it right now. “
Street Fighter 6 will be coming out in 2023 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
