Darkstalkers Entombed For Now, but Was It Really All About the Sales Figures?

J. Hugo of Kaboomshark writes "A day where you find out a beloved franchise has been sent to the storage room to collect dust is always a sad day indeed and, for many, today was one of those days with the announcement that Darkstalkers would be shoved aside. According to details revealed by Capcom’s head of fighting games Matt Dahlgren, the reason why many’s hopes for a Darkstalkers sequel has been quashed is due to the poor sales figures of Darkstalkers: Resurrection........However, is the failure of Darkstalkers: Resurrection resting squarely on the shoulders of us gamers who didn’t buy it? I don’t really think so." (Culture, Darkstalkers Resurrection, Industry)

The game is old as dirt and doesn't really have the longevity that 3rd Strike or Capcom vs Marvel 2 had.
Did Capcom really expect this game to sell gangbusters?

If they made a new Darkstalkers and made just as good as any other of their fighters the sales would have came.
