Street Fighter 6 has managed to impress audiences so far. The game promises a massive overhaul to the classic franchise, bringing some much-needed improvements after Street Fighter 5.
Less than two months from its official release, a new report claims that an open beta for Street Fighter 6 is right around the corner.
Today’s hot “leak” on JP FGC Twitter:
Eiko Kano, a talent and streamer who is regularly invited to Capcom TV, casually mentioned that SF6 will hold an open beta later this month while streaming Dead by Daylight.
He didn’t seem aware that this wasn’t officially announced yet. https://t.co/avs7aHJwK1

The streamer hints that an open beta is coming this month. This would allow players who missed the closed beta tests to try the game just in time for its nearing launch.
Open betas have been a common trend across multiple different fighting games. Looking at the hype surrounding Street Fighter 6, it would not be too surprising to see an announcement in the coming days.
Following recent reveals, Capcom has shown the full list of characters coming to Street Fighter 6 at launch. The game’s marketing is also reaching its conclusion, so an open beta could give it a slight boost right before launch.
However, it would be best to wait until Capcom makes an official announcement before jumping to conclusions.
Street Fighter 6 officially releases on June 2. The fighting game will be available across PC and nearly every console except the Xbox One. Would you participate in an open beta? Are you a Street Fighter fan? Let’s discuss this in the comments.
