Yoshinori Ono is one of the most notorious figures at Capcom. Having served as the company’s brand manager for nearly 30 years and most notably linked to Street Fighter Ono will leave the company this summer.

Ono did not provide an exact reason for his departure. Instead, he went on to thank all the fans and people who have supported him throughout the years. This is a bit surprising considering that the next major updates for Street Fighter V were just announced. Adding Dan, Oro, Rose, and Akira to the game over the next year.

Currently, rumors are circulating it’s about Street Fighter 6’s development and how Ono was at odds with the direction of the title.

Street Fighter V is now available for PS4 and PC.
