Capcom Rethinks Re-Releases of Fighting Games
Everyone knows that Capcom specializes in crafting great fighting games. They’ve been at it for years. But it seems that they might be slowing down their digital re-release schedule.
According to a post in the Capcom-Unity forums, Capcom’s Christian Svensson mentioned that their log of fighting games is becoming exhausted and that it is becoming less and less feasible to make a profit on the older titles. He also mentions that there is a substantial “drop-off” with each new re-release.
Basically, not all of your favorite old Capcom titles from yesteryear will be making the leap into digital distribution. This may be sad for some, but Capcom already has a decent stable of classic fighting games to whet your appetite.
Svensson also mentioned that Capcom was hard at work on more current and next-gen titles for digital distribution. So don’t worry, you’ll be able to get your Capcom fighter fix well into the new generation of consoles.
