Street Fighter 6 Crossplay: Chun Li and Ryu can be seen fighting one another.

Street Fighter 6 has continually impressed since it was revealed at Sony’s State of Play in early June. But, Capcom is also making a number of advancements as a developer that are aimed to bring Street Fighter 6 in line with other modern fighting games. And, one of those features you would expect is Street Fighter 6 crossplay and cross-platform play.

The feature is a staple of almost any modern multiplayer game and Capcom hasn’t jumped on with supporting it like other companies. But, with a lot riding on Street Fighter 6’s success, you would surely expect Street Fighter 6 crossplay and cross-platform play to be available across the game’s modes.

So to find out if crossplay will be in the game and if so how it will work, read on below through the rest of this article and overview. We touch on Fighting Ground and Battle Hub, which both offer multiplayer.

Does Street Fighter 6 have crossplay and crossplatform support?

Street Fighter 6 will have full crossplay and crossplatform support when it launches in 2023 across all platforms. This news was confirmed during Summer Games Fest Play Days where journalists like Tamoor Hussain and creators like Maximilian Dood confirmed with Capcom that the game would support the feature.

Crossplay will be available in both Fighting Ground online modes, as well as the Battle Hub, which allows you to group up in big lobbies. Here you can play games, watch matches, and hang out with friends and strangers.

In addition, in the closed beta which is currently running, crossplay will be available between PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Unfortunately, the beta isn’t available on PS4 so crossplay won’t be available there.

We don’t yet know if crossplay will be able to be turned off, or if it is on by default, as response times between platforms, such as when you hit keys or buttons are different. This could make competitive modes less balanced, especially in a ranked mode. But, we will update this article once we have more information from Capcom.

And that covers Steet Fighter 6 crossplay and crossplatform support. Now that you are ready to begin playing, you can hop into a match with one of the new or returning Street Fighter 6 characters either online or locally.
