announces this was his final day at
Capcom, as the publisher/developer laid off staff today as part of a
reorganization. He says he actually suggested this: "This departure is not a bad
thing for me and it’s happening mostly because I’d suggested it during the early
planning for today’s reorg. While I wish the company the best of luck, Capcom is
going in a different direction and the need for people at my level, relative to
other areas, is lacking. Those who know me well, know that I’ve been ready to go
for quite some time."
has a statement from Capcom following up on this:
today laid off several employees from the US office as part of an overall
organizational restructure of the company. The transition to the new generation
of hardware and changing industry landscape have required us to adapt our
business to best meet our new goals. We sincerely thank each individual for
their contributions and wish them well.
