Capcom has announced that it will not be launching Super Street Fighter IV on PC, claiming that piracy was a big problem for Street Fighter IV's PC launch.

In an interview with 4Gamer, translated by Andriasang, Capcom's Yohinori Ono said that, while Street Fighter 4 did sell well on PC, the game was wounded by rampant piracy.

To protect the series, Capcom has therefore cancelled plans to release a PC version of the game - even though the PC version is said to be 99 percent complete.

Asked whether Capcom would consider a digital release over more piracy-proof platforms like Steam or GamersGate, Ono said that such a move would be unfair to anyone who did not have access to the service.

Steam and GamersGate are free to use digital distribution platforms, accessible to anyone with an internet connection and the funds to buy the games they want.

Super Street Fighter IV was already released on consoles back in April this year.
