Does Street Fighter 6 feature microtransactions?

Street Fighter 6 will have microtransactions in the form of an in-game currency called Drive Tickets.

These Drive Tickets are Street Fighter 6’s microtransaction currency, and while it’s currently not confirmed, during the beta players were able to earn these by completing challenges. Perhaps players will have the option to purchase them with real money or grind to earn them for free by playing the game.

Further, we also know that Street Fighter 6 will feature a yearly pass for players to purchase. This pass is expected to come with content such as new characters, adding further depth and variety to the game. Given that each recent Street Fighter title has had a lifespan of a few years, we can anticipate Street Fighter 6 to follow suit, providing players with ongoing updates and fresh content.
