Does Street Fighter 6 have microtransactions? Drive Tickets explained

It does appear that Street Fighter 6 will indeed incorporate microtransactions into the game in the form of a Drive Tickets currency.

Street Fighter 5’s Fight Money currency proved to be very controversial with the community. But in the Street Fighter 6 beta, we saw the debut of the new Drive Tickets. They allowed you to acquire new clothes and cosmetics for your characters.

We’ll have to wait and see if they have any different or additional functions when it comes to the full launch of the game compared to Street Fighter 5’s Fight Tokens.

We also know that there will be a new yearly pass for players to purchase that will come with content such as new characters. Each recent Street Fighter title has had a lifespan of a few years, and we’d expect Street Fighter 6 to be no different.
