• Capcom's countdown timer drew speculations from fans
  • Some believe it could be related to "Street Fighter 6"
  • Capcom has not said anything about its countdown timer

Japanese video game developer and publisher Capcom has recently launched a countdown timer on its official website, which intrigued a lot of fans. While a new piece of insider information claims a possible "Street Fighter 6" reveal could happen at the end of the countdown, others believe it could be the announcement of "Street Fighter Secret Lair."

Capcom's mysterious countdown is set to end Monday at 1 p.m. ET and according to VentureBeat reporter Jeff Grubb, it will end with an announcement of "Street Fighter 6." The reporter flatly said, "It's Street Fighter 6," when asked about the possibility of a new entry in the hit fighting franchise being announced at the end of the countdown timer.

Grubb also noted that everybody should expect the official unveiling of "Street Fighter 6" on Monday. The video game reporter has confirmed this information from various sources and believes it is a given that he does not need to talk about it in the latest episode of Grubsnax show.

Grubb's claim aligns with the prevalent theory that the game's official reveal will happen at the end of the timer. However, another possibility is the announcement of the long-awaited release date of "Street Fighter Secret Lair" from "Magic: Gathering."

This latest collaboration features iconic "Street Fighter" characters, including Ryu, Chun-Li, Blanka, Dhalsim, Zangief, E. Honda and Guile. Pre-order started on Feb. 18 and the set will be available from the Secret Lair and Wizards site until March 18.

Since Capcom has not said anything about the countdown timer, all of these are speculations.

But, claims about the possible official reveal of "Street Fighter 6" on Monday may have some credence since it is also the final day of the Capcom Pro Tour Street Fighter 5 tournament.

Considering the popularity of "Street Fighter" in the esports scene and that the Japanese gaming developer and publisher had previously revealed new "Street Fighter 5" content on professional tournaments, revealing "Street Fighter 6" will make a lot of sense.
