Street Fighter V Won't Have Season Pass for 2019

Unlike past seasons of Street Fighter V, Capcom has no plans for a Season Pass of DLC characters for the 2019.

After finishing the year in grace with Capcom Cup 2018, developer/publisher Capcom decided to introduce a brand-new character for their immensely popular fighting game Street Fighter V and they did so a few days ago with Kage (Kah-Gay).

With that announcement, the company is showing up intention of mixing things up in 2019 for SFV. Season 4 is just on the horizon and players thought that reveal of this new character DLC would come up with more details on Season Pass but apparently, they don't have a plan for it.

Though people are calling the character out as a bad Halloween costume for Ryu or some citing this as just another crazed cosplay character, he is the physical embodiment of the Satsui no Hado and not Evil Ryu to be very specific.

The initial reaction from the fans for Kage was mostly mixed but many of them were not much interested about his inclusion anyway. You can purchase the currently available DLC for only $5.99 or in exchange for 100,000 Fight Money.

However, Capcom didn't go on hinting at who else would be there on their content plan for next season and announced the following on Twitter.

Of course they have no intention to stop with Kage and probably bring in more fighters next year but instead of offering a bundle of half-dozen warriors for a discounted price, they will probably sold them separately for in-game currency or real money. We are not sure yet.

There is also a possibility that the developers are moving towards a sequel or going for a free-to-play model. Producer Yoshinori Ono of Street Fighter V mentioned in a 2016 interview to Famitsu that they have plans to support the game to 2020 at least though.
