July 30, 2018 Update: Capcom has revealed the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection patch for the Nintendo Switch that will be coming to the platform later today — July 30th. You can check out the full patch notes after the jump to see how they compare to the other platforms.

Earlier: Capcom has announced that an upcoming patch will be released on June 28, 2018 around 10:00 a.m. PDT. Apparently there will be different changes for each of the consoles.

Matchmaking filters were added for the PlayStation 4 and Steam versions of the game. Notably, the Xbox One version uses "Microsoft’s system for optimizing matchmaking for users with strong signals," therefore no matchmaking filter was added for the Xbox One version.

The lobby issues of the PlayStation 4 have been improved. How they've been improved is not outright stated.

Akuma is no longer playable in Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo online ranked for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam versions of the game. This particular fighter has been banned from Street Fighter 2 Turbo tournaments for years.

There won't be a patch for the Nintendo Switch version at the same time as the other platforms. Capcom has confirmed that they are still working on it though. "Coming soon."

This should hopefully make the online experience better for all players. Understandably, there have been some complaints about many of the issues that are being resolved with this patch.
