Capcom are looking for a 2.5 year gap between future iterations in it’s flagship franchises, as a potential boost their profits.
Translations of Capcom executive comments show that Lost Planet and Devil May Cry will be the first series to benefit from this new plan.
“We want to reduce the time needed to develop major titles from the usual three-to-four years to only 2.5 years,” Capcom chairman and CEO Kenzo Tsujimoto stated to investors.
“Speeding up development will probably raise the cost. But creating quality content will be vital to Capcom’s ability to survive by overcoming intense global competition.”
“For DMC Devil May Cry, development will require five years due to the time needed to select development companies because of our decision to switch to external development,” Haruhiro Tsujimoto said. “But our goal is to reduce the cycle to 2.5 years for subsequent titles in this series.”
This means we will be seeing Capcom titles more frequently. Are you ready to see a new Devil May Cry game in 2015?
