Capcom may be gearing up for a Street Fighter 6 reveal Monday, according to GamesBeat reporter Jeff Grubb.

A mysterious countdown appeared on Capcom's website earlier this week without an indication of what will happen when it runs out Monday. Without much context, fans speculated the countdown could be teasing an imminent reveal for Street Fighter 6. Central to the theory: The countdown ends at 1 a.m. ET Monday, coinciding with Capcom's Street Fighter Pro Tour season finale, which began Feb. 17.

Grubb added fuel to the speculative fire in a recent episode of his Giant Bomb show (paywalled; H/T VGC), when he reported that multiple sources familiar with Capcom's plans told him the Street Fighter 6 reveal would arrive at countdown's end. A reveal would also align with the 35th anniversary of the Street Fighter franchise.

Capcom hasn't yet confirmed plans to reveal Street Fighter 6. It released the last Street Fighter game, Street Fighter 5, in February 2016 to a fairly negative reception. Over the ensuing years, Capcom has updated the game first to Arcade Edition and then to Champion Edition, improving the game's reputation over time.
