Finally, Capcom announced that Streamline Studios (BioShock Infinite, Gears of War) helped with Street Fighter V’s development, collaborating on design, concept art, and creation and integration of content, while also working on the “technical pipelines that led to better optimized lighting, material and backgrounds.”
Streamline Studios CEO Alexander Fernandez said:
It is has been fantastic working with Capcom and an honor to work on such an iconic IP as Street Fighter. We’ve enjoyed every second of our collaboration. A project of this scale requires innovation and seamless collaboration on all levels that doesn’t get in the way of development. Leveraging Streamframe, our technology platform designed for game development, we were able to directly integrate into Capcom’s development process and significantly reduce turnaround times and costs.
Street Fighter V launches tomorrow on PlayStation 4 and PC.
