On Monday, Haunts announced Street Fighters V’s August update. The update was released on Capcom’s official blog. The biggest focus of the update was the stricter guidelines for players who disconnect before a match ends.
Capcom will also implement Double Fight Money days with additional features in September. The event will give players an opportunity to increase their earnings in Ranked Matches.
