Who could have told, Capcom?

Results of Analysis
- Decline in quality of titles outsourced to overseas developers

Countermeasures
-Change of strategy for the Home Video Games business (increase DLC, shift to internal R&D)

Reasons Behind the Undershooting of Original Targets
-Delayed response to the expanding digital contents market
-Insufficient coordination between the marketing and game development divisions
in overseas markets
-Decline in quality due to excessive outsourcing
-However, business results are largely in line with revised forecasts (2012/12)

Future Strategic Issues
2. Raise game quality by moving more game development in-house

Also, DmC sales expectations have been lowered again (only a little, to be honest).

Also I wonder where the 1.15 millions for DmC comes from. Given all the sources it doesn't seem it has sold anyhting near that.

Update:

As a result of the figures below, Capcom has now confirmed that it has cancelled several overseas projects that it has deemed, “no longer compatible with the current business strategy”. We’ll update once we know which games have suffered the axe.

That game is way too far in the development cycle to be cancelled at this point. It's probably a bunch of unannounced games.
