Capcom has announced a whopping £46 million restructure bill that will see many internal projects canned before they’re even announced, mainly because of “delays in responding to the digital contents and the resulting inability to address market needs,” according to official statements.
Halving its projected profit forecasts because of the restructure, the publisher has also cancelled several Western games because they’re “no longer compatible with the current business strategy” and has vowed to move away from outsourcing games, instead opting to “strengthen digital strategies” and “raise game quality by moving more game development in-house.”
Capcom has targeted sales of £650 million for the current financial year, suggesting something rather big is around the corner.
“In view of the sudden and significant changes in the operating environment of the digital contents business,” the publisher said today, “Capcom reviewed its business expansion strategy for the sector and restructured its game development organization.”
Capcom’s French-developed Remember Me is still expected to be released soon.
