Today Capcom published a new message to investors from Chief Executive Officer Kenzo Tsujimoto, followed by another from Chief Operating Officer Haruhiro Tsujimoto. The two gave a positive outlook of the year to come.
So they want to hire 1/6th of the Resident Evil 6 staff. Dragons Dogma sequel please.
I hope they turn things around and start releasing games people actually want to buy again. It'd be nice if they focused more on title releases than DLC and microtransactions. If they do this they might lower the negativity of their public face. I grew up on Capcom games, I'd hate to see them go away. There are just so many great IPs they could revisit.
So true. I just wish they would act like they know how strong of a library they have and put the same amount of effort into making them as they used to. I remember when Capcom games had so much content you could still be unlocking things almost a year after having the game.
They're too busy throwing teams on projects they promised they wouldn't do, like Ultra Street Fighter IV. We should be playing SF5 by now, but they are doing what they do best, vamping all the life out of a good franchise. They went from not being sure they wanted to let the SF team make another fighting game - to blasting their way through to the 4th iteration of the same numbered sequel now. All while dropping other fighting games in the small gaps (MvC3, UMvC3 and SFxTekken). Now they're basically just grabbing assets from SFxTekken to do Ultra SFIV. Crapcom is so annoying. They can never just do the right thing when they have a good thing going with a game. The SF team is like the only respectable team they have left, not counting the diamonds in the rough like Dragon's Dogma. You'd think they'd be more careful with such franchises, rather than just go all out with the anti-consumerism. MvC3 to UMvC3 was sad how they ripped the consumers off, they released UMvC3 less than 9 months later, and it wasn't upgradeable, just wrong. SFxTekken had characters locked on the disc, characters like Blanka, come on Crapcom, just - come on. They sold gems in that game, gems that altered fighting stats, and tried to say it wouldn't effect the outcome of a battle. It was obvious they added gems just to have another avenue for revenue with $$$ DLC, making a serious fighting game P2W, it's almost funny that they'd go that far. It's a fighting game, what the hell?! I almost got the game too, just cuz Hugo of SF3 was in there, so glad I didn't make that mistake. Crapcom are bastards.
Capcom should fire beta tester (RE 6)
You need 100 more people to make Street Fighter 4.87690 ?
That's good news, sounds like they have big plans. Looking forward to Strider.
Strider? The game thats being made solely by Double Helix?
I believe it's being made by Double Helix and 'core Strider staff', and it's the next Capcom release I'm looking forward to. They've done well with bringing back old series.
Capcom help Double Helix made Strider
I don't want to be part of the bulliest company :p http://www.escapistmagazine...
It's sad, and it's not just happening at capcom. My wife had similar issue at her job (although the company handled it much better and things did get resolved without her needing to leave the company). Unfortunately there are people in the world who rise to senior positions who don't have the maturity to handle people they don't see eye to eye with. In that case it sounded like a women who didn't like another younger women working in her dept.
Capcom wants to hire 100 Devs a year to not make Megaman It's a sick joke, I'm sorry But in case you wanted another one.. The mock application sheet:"Do you have relevant game design experience for platformers and have serious interest in the Megaman series? Just kidding, we're never doing Megaman" I'm done
Have faith that Comcept with do good with Mighty No 9.
I thought they were broke with about a $100 million left?
Capcom : monster hunter 4
Do they even have the money for it?
Can I request Capcom bring back a much better new-gen version but still cel-shaded Auto Modellista? ( http://www.covergalaxy.com/... )
Capcom need to make good survival horrors again like RE 1-CVx not the action based rubbish known as RE 4-6, until they go back to there routes and make proper games I not even going to touch there games with a stick.
They will hire them, then their games flop, then they are fired. I predicted it, always happens when a company expands cause of "demand", demand never lasts forever.
Come to ONE,DeepDown!!
Its capcom 95 of those 100 will be developing dlc :P
