Capcom’s Seth Killian has said that fans won’t have to wait a decade for a full blown sequel to Street Fighter IV to arrive on the scene.

Killian’s comments will ring true for long-time Street Fighter aficionados’, as 2009's SFIV didn’t materialise until ten years after Street Fighter III was released.

However, it seems Capcom is keen on getting Street Fighter V out the door sooner, with Killian telling Eurogamer, “If I have anything to say about it, and I do, you will not have to wait ten years for Street Fighter 5.”

“It will be before 2019. Now I’m going to be fired for promising Street Fighter 5 before 2019. I think I should be OK. We’ll see. They’ll do 2020 just to screw me and make me look like an ass.”

Unsurprisingly however, he wasn’t in a position to divulge any possible ideas for a follow-up.

“I have to be very guarded. Or the case will be some other game cops the idea. That happens all of the time. With the rebirth of fighters there’s a lot of great games coming out. I’m always paranoid when I’m looking at new games to see if someone’s stolen one of the ideas I have in my notebook of awesome stuff. It’s not like they’ve read my notebook or they’ve cheated me out of it. They’ve come to it on their own clever reasoning.”
