Ono: No intention of carrying the Street Fighter 4 series beyond Super Street Fighter 4 series producer, Yoshinori Ono, told the Official Xbox Magazine that he has no intentions of carrying the Street Fighter 4 saga beyond this month's release of SSF4, although there's room for Street Fighter 5 in the future.

Although plans can and do change, it sounds like if there's another update for SF4 — it will be available via DLC that will cost users a little bit of money.

This interview also goes on to discuss character balance and several other interesting things. It's a great read, definitely something you should check out. Here's a snip.
How did you rebalance the old characters for Super Street Fighter IV? Did you consult the top players or was everything done internally?

Ono: In the past year, we went through all the statistics and all the data in terms of how matches went, and as well as that we made NDAs with top players and carried out some tests with the game in progress. We found out what they thought of these characters and how they could use the characters. With both of the findings together, we established a separate team - not a development team but an independent balancing team - and they went through both findings, matched them and tried to come up with their own solution. So that's how we have done it.
