There have been rumors of a fourth installment for years, with Sega of Japan creating a demo of a ''Streets of Rage 4'' running on UsefulNote/{{Dreamcast}} hardware. But since Sega of America was not aware of the series and its past success, the project was not followed up on. The Eidos brawler ''Fighting Force'' was also pitched to Sega execs as ''Streets of Rage 4,'' but because of the aforementioned lack of faith in the brand it was passed up, becoming the later independent title. A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3W3BfMKI2o reboot]] by Ruffian Games was also cancelled in 2012.

In ''Streets of Rage 3'', Max is replaced with Zan, a cyborg with electrical powers who's playstyle revolves mainly around crowd control, essentially taking the "gimmick" role.

After ''[[DevelopmentHell eight]]'' years of development, Spanish fan developer group [[http://www.bombergames.net/sorr_project/ Bomber Games]] released in 2011 their [[FreewareGames free]] [[FanRemake unofficial remake]] of the game, aptly named ''Streets of Rage Remake''. It's basically a mish-mash of the three games with a lot of original and remixed content added; to make room for all the levels, the game makes extensive use of branching paths. Highlights include being able to play as any character in the series so far (including Adam) and MultipleEndings. The game [[FanworkBan was pulled down]] [[ScrewedByTheNetwork from the developer's site]] at [[http://www.destructoid.com/sega-responds-to-streets-of-rage-remake-pull-198723.phtml Sega's request]] (although details are sketchy, basic reckoning concludes that they did not want unsolicited competition for their eventual compilation re-release on Xbox LIVE), but not before having received wide coverage and [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes spread]] with unofficial updates fixing the game.
