Capcom has confirmed that adjustments to Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition's online matchmaking will be applied in a future update. Additional details will surface regarding this on March 24.

"Hey there fighters. The #SFV team has taken your feedback with the online matchmaking and are making adjustments in an upcoming update," stated the post. "We will be releasing the details on March 24 when the update is scheduled to go live. Thanks for all your feedback and support."

Yoshinori Ono also echoed what was said on the official Street Fighter account. Apparently this update is coming about thanks to the feedback provided by the community.

"The #SFV team has heard the feedback on the online matchmaking system and adjustments are being made in an upcoming update," stated Ono. "More details will be shared on March 24, when the update is scheduled to release, so please stay tuned. Thank you for your support."

The previous update that was directed at Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition's online systems attempted to fix the desyncing issues that occurs during crossplay between the PlayStation 4 and PC versions of the game.

Of course, it was still possible to get matched up against opponents from different countries while playing ranked mode. Needless to say, this tended to be very frustrating for fans.

While unconfirmed at the moment, it sounds as though a region lock will be implemented for Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition.
