Back in November of 2018, Capcom had reported that they had sold at least 2.2 million units of Street Fighter 5. Notably, their original projected sales for the title was two million. We had received confirmation that Capcom had achieved this goal back in December of 2017.

It's worth mentioning that Capcom's latest financial report indicated that the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection performed well in 2018, but oddly made no mention of Street Fighter 5. Despite what that seems to suggest, it appears that Street Fighter 5 sales have jumped up by about 700,000 units.

In other words, Street Fighter 5 is now Capcom's 18th best selling title. This also means that Street Fighter 5 is Capcom's fourth best selling fighting game.

Note that updated versions of fighters like Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 or Street Fighter 4 and Super Street Fighter 4 are being counted as separate titles. It appears that Street Fighter 5 and Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition are being counted as the same entity since the new version was a free update.

As for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, sales were increased by approximately 100,000 units. Unfortunately, this means that it has only been able to reach 1.3 million units of the two million projected sales goal.

Oddly, the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is absent from Capcom's Platinum Titles page despite the fact that Devil May Cry HD Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection are both present.
