Valve Apologizes for Recent Street Fighter V Leak

Street Fighter V

It was recently leaked that E.Honda, Lucia, and Poison would be making their way into Street Fighter V as DLC characters. While Capcom had planned on revealing the news in the near future the trailer showcasing the trio it seems that a mixup ended up bringing the trailer out a little early. Now it appears that Valve is taking responsibility for the leak and have issued an apology for the action.

A representative on Steam stepped in to make the apology through a Steam post, stating that a mix up in the publishing process is the reason the trailer went live ahead of schedule. The representative also states that the distributor has already taken the steps to ensure that leaks such as the Street Fighter V won’t happen again.

On Wednesday of this week there was a mix-up in the publishing process at Valve that caused a trailer to go live on Steam ahead of schedule. The trailer includes the major reveal of Poison, Lucia, and E. Honda as characters joining the fighter roster. It’s a regrettable and unintentional situation, and we have already implemented measures to prevent this error from happening again. We are fans of Street Fighter ourselves and we’re sorry for the error.”
