Despite being the producer for classics in the past, the last game credit he has is megaman 11 and has been producing anime/CG movies since.

So nothing will really change game wise at Capcom. Hopefully he got a huge raise and will actually produce a netease game i will want to play.

Where are you getting your information? I was on IMDb and couldn't even find Mega Man 11 on his credits list. Is there a better website that is more appropriate for videogame productions? VGDb or something? :D

Wikipedia. And i trust it because i remember seeing him on the re aniversary stream talking up the netflix re movie. He also produced the dragon dogmas anime.

Willing to be proved wrong.

Edit. 2021 RE showcase his title is Resident Evil Media Business if he is also responsible for the last 2 live action movies he might have been asked to leave.

So basically everyone left Cacpom to other studios , PG , Tango studio , Chinese studios ... damn Capcom are you that bad that everyone leaving you and only your Gen Z millennial devs left ?

After 27 years in the same job position you get to question your choices and when you get a better pay and higher position you will go for it even if it’s just to work with a new crew 🤷🏿

It would be bad if the games produced by those studios were way better or sold more than what capcom makes
