The sales numbers revealed that to date, the title has sold 1.45 million units since its release. The total includes sales worldwide, both digital and retail sales.

It should be noted that Capcom expected the game to have sold 2 million to date. Street Fighter’s sales performance has become an ongoing question among critics and supporters. The game experienced a number of issues which have been clearly reflected in the sales numbers.
