Officially announced during Sony’s PlayStation Experience event in Las Vegas, Nev. on Saturday, Street Fighter V will be console exclusive for the PlayStation 4. The game is also coming to the PC.

Sony Computer Entertainment partnered with Capcom on Street Fighter V’s development. The fighter is made from the ground-up on PS4, according to Adam Boyes, vice president of publisher and developer relations at Sony Computer Entertainment America.

The game won’t be releasing for the Xbox One.

“PlayStation 4 will be the only console this game ever appears on,” Boyes said during the conference.

Street Fighter V will have cross-platform online multiplayer gameplay between the PS4 and PC community, the first time in the franchise’s history.

Capcom didn’t reveal a release date or character roster for Street Fighter V. It wasn’t confirmed if future updates and releases of Street Fighter V are also exclusive to PS4 and will never release on Xbox One.

“Throughout all of our discussions with Sony Computer Entertainment, it is clear that we share a mutual belief that the fighting genre has a huge opportunity for growth,” Matt Dahlgren, senior product manager at Capcom. said in a press release. “The announcement today is just the first step, of many, in creating the next generation Street Fighter experience our fans have been asking for.”

Capcom also announced that Ultra Street Fighter IV will be ported to the PS4 in spring 2015 with all the game’s costume downloadable content packs. Unlike Street Fighter V, the game won’t be cross-platform with the PC version.

Ultra Street Fighter IV digitally released in June and is the latest update to Street Fighter IV, which first released for home consoles in February 2009. Ultra Street Fighter IV has 44 available characters.
