Capcom Aiming To Reduce Development Cycles For Major Franchises and More

According to a recent Q & A briefing listing some of the questions asked at Capcom's Briefing of Financial Results, it appears that there is a main goal of reducing development cycles of the company's major franchises. (Industry)

See this is the type of crap that got crapcom into their financial slump in the first place. Making stupid descisions exactly like this. If they honestly think that shortening development time even more and pumping these games out even faster is going to change their fortunes, well they're sadly mistaken. People want games that are well produced, not rushed garbage and this goes for capcom especially. Ever since last generation its been mistakes over and over, whomever is running this company needs to fired immediately before their situation gets worse than what it already is.

So true. If all youve been producing over the past few years has been crap, why would you think spending even less time refining games before releasing them is a good idea? Aside from the success of Street Fighter IV, Capcom hasnt released a single damn noteworthy game this past gen. Maybe dead rising but even thats sort of a toss up based on critical performance.

to think capcom was once such a heavy hitter. I dont even think i want to see another RE announcement to be honest. Not unless RE7 spends A LOTTTT more time cooking in the oven first.

You dont know what your talking about Dragons Dogma was a smash hit for them and like it or not RE6 sold really well and I'm one who loved my buy. You come off as one of those followers who just says what others who hate Capcom would say.

Dont like their stuff dont buy its clear millions of others do just look at the sales. Their money problems is not its games its their spending. Is monster hunter a failure think not...try again.

Dragon's Dogma? Dead Rising? Good games indeed.

Im with you ppl just love hopping on the ban wagon
I loved RE6 nothing was wrong with it we gotta start as gamers getting rid of the bias gamers that flame online its bringing the industry down
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   221d ago
okay guys, rather than jumping down my throat for not mentioning dragons dogma, how about you all actually take a second to consider why im saying what im saying?

Bionic Commando
lost planet(s) 2, 3
resident evils Raccoon city, 5, 6
Dark void (published)

capcom games were literally some of the first i had ever played with the SNES. go ahead and assume im on some hate-train while your company continues to plummet $$$ into projects no one cares about.
MrSwankSinatra  +   221d ago
@Hidden Mission More like you have no clue what you're talking about. RE6 did not sell well based of capcom's own projections. Not only was it critical failure, but was also a commercial failure for capcom themselves. Hell they've come and said this themselves. Dragon's Dogma is one game out of the countless games that have under performed for capcom. Devil May Cry 4, Bionic Commando, DmC: Devil May Cry, Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom, Street Fighter X Tekken, Remember Me, Dark Void, Lost Planet 2, Lost Planet 3, Resident Evil 6, etc. How about you actually do some research before trying to correct somebody.

BTW if you honestly liked Resident Evil 6 then not only do you have poor standards for storytelling, but you probably have even worse standards when it comes to actual gameplay. It's universally known that RE6 is not even up to par for an average third person shooter. I'm going to guess your one of those gamers that based the quality of a game off your Co-op experience LOL. what a joke.......

Why just why Capcom Sigh!!!

Used to rate Capcom highly made some great games in the past like Resident Evil/Dino Crisis being two of my fav's but these days it's all about dragging their tired ass out the swamp with mediocre average games being spewed out of every orifice and now this,i'd love to see Capcom get back to the good times but i only see more bad times ahead.
kalkano  +   221d ago
They'll undoubtedly achieve this by putting less content in the games, making people want them even less than they already do.
cfc78  +   221d ago
Less content and more dlc is my guess.
meatysausage  +   221d ago
Im guessing I can forget my hope for a Dragons Dogma sequel, or a good one at that
Aleithian  +   221d ago
I want a DD sequel SO BAD. The Pawn Community is such a great group of people - I hope Capcom doesn't shaft us.
XtraTrstrL  +   221d ago
LOL, so shorter development cycles = risk taking? Yeah, pretty risky there Crapcom, sounds like a bad idea basically, with how bad you been doing with regular development cycles as is.

I swear they have the old Mike Tyson curse. They have all the potential in the world, showed it many times, they just can't help but throw themselves into the fire, over and over, pointlessly. Except, most their errors come from the greedy CEOs and COOs and other bigwigs that have too much say.
Omar91  +   221d ago
They really don't wanna make money huh?
Monstar  +   221d ago
I bet capcom are crying when they compare RE6 to Last of us lol
WeAreLegion  +   221d ago
Devil May Cry 5 with the same team who did 2, 3, and 4. How hard is that?!?
Roccetarius  +   221d ago
Itsuno would be the man for the job, as long as they're not cutting content like they did with 4.
jeremyj2913  +   221d ago
It really makes me feel better when others kno what went on with that game. My friend just played it again recently after playing DMC3 for a while and sent me a text saying he understands how I got bored with 4 so fast.lol
WeAreLegion  +   221d ago
Oh, awesome. More DMC fans. They're few and far between around here. Itsuno really needs to take up the reigns on DMC5 with as much time and money as his team needs. This could be a huge hit for Capcom.
Inception  +   221d ago
Or, just collaborate with P* Games and make Kamiya direct it.
WeAreLegion  +   221d ago
I know everyone is working with him lately, but he's kind of a prick these days. And the best DMC was made by Itsuno's team: DMC 3. As much as I love Kamiya's older works (DMC, Viewtiful Joe, Okami), the man hasn't done much great stuff in the past few years. Wonderful 101 was a decent action title, but I expected more. Bayonetta has wonderful gameplay, but the story bores me.
Remy_Chaos  +   221d ago
Just no... why waste my time shaking my head, or matter of fact why waste all our time posting comments here. They won't listen so I say let them sink. Last gen I only got one capcom game - Dragon's Dogma, it wasn't perfect but it was still pretty damn good. Now well any sequel will be rushed and DLC, microtransaction ridden. I'm done.
rambi80  +   221d ago
this wont end well...i wonder who will buy them out eventually?
MegaRay  +   221d ago
Anyone would be fine with me... anyone except EA & Activition.
TenkoTAiLS  +   221d ago
So they can't make a decent game anymore with a proper long dev time...but they want to shorten these dev times? Where is the quality going to magically come from?
paul-p1988  +   221d ago
The official Monster Hunter page on Facebook keeps showing off 'amazing' screenshots of MH4 that look near enough identical to the PSP games. Expect none of this to be upgraded anytime soon if they are intending to reduce development time.... (imo they've made a lot of silly mistakes with it since moving to Nintendo...)

Why Crapcom, Why?! The PS1 games you made were amazing, original trilogy of Resident Evil & Dino Crisis to this day are still some of the best games ever made, and now you just pump out the same rubbish that had no thought put into it, and it's obviously about to get a hell of a lot worse...

The end of Capcom is near

I so wish Capcom would make anew Dino Crisis game. Zombies are scary but having a giant monster trying to kill you and smarter too is a lot more scary. I would have thought companies would have been wanted to make a dinosaur game to come out around the time Universal brings out Jurassic World. But I've heard nothing. I just hope some day some company has the brains to make a dinosaur game again.
