Capcom Plotzes - Issues Profit Warning; Cancelling Games

Capcom has issued a dire financial forecast, warning investors that profits for the year will be about half of previous projections, reports MCV. They blame "drastic changes in the industry’s market environment," the "concentration of AAA titles in the hands of few foreign competitors," and their "delayed response to the shift to digital media in the Home Video Games business" as contributing factors. They also place blame on outsourced development, which always seems like a good idea at the time, as they cite a "decline in quality of titles outsourced to overseas developers," which is inspiring a shift to internal sources in the future. They also imply that some current game projects will be cancelled, saying "work in progress in game software" is being "strictly re-evaluated for business restructuring."

There is just no excuse for Capcom not being successful - they own some great properties. Too bad they atrociously mismanaged them. I will say that Dead Rising 2, despite feeling very much like a console game, was fantastic however. I really wish they had ported Dragon's Dogma to PC.

Yeah agreed. I played it on the PS3 and it looked like a vaseline smeared mess and had often annoying amounts of screen tearing. Good game but man that one needed a PC port. What's weird is that Capcom normally ports most things to the PC but for some reason just decided not to for this particular game, no clue why.
