Recently, Capcom's official website featured a mysterious countdown timer. When the countdown came to an end, the company revealed Street Fighter 6 - the next installment in the popular fighting game series. This announcement coincided with the conclusion of Capcom Pro Tour 2021, a tournament that saw many of the best Street Fighter players from around the world.
