Street Fighter 6 Release Time Guide: When Does SF6 Come Out?

Street Fighter 6 is the latest entry in the long running series, and eager fans may be curious about the exact release time they can play. After SFV’s rocky launch, Capcom has seemingly addressed these issues by packing SF6 with loads of content at launch. From the game’s World Tour mode to the 18 characters available, fighting game fans are in for a grand time when the game drops on June 2, 2023.

However, when exactly will you be able to play the new title? Here’s everything you need to know about the release time for Street Fighter 6.

When Can You Preload SF6?

Street Fighter 6 is available to preload now across all platforms. This ability was just flipped on the night of Tuesday, May 30, just three days before launch. If you’re looking to preload, you can head to the store of your respective platform and go to the game’s page. Once there, you will now have the option to preload the title.

The title will begin downloading and stay locked until the game has launched, which will require you to connect to the internet and check for the release time.
