I wonder if Capcom is going to become another developer that bites the dust this generation?

Quite a few companies have not survived the switch to HD gaming and the soaring development costs. Capcom of course has other issues that have hurt them quite a bit. Could we be on the verge of seeing Capcom shut down?


It's a really high possibility at this point. If Capcom IS going under, they'll have to start selling their IPs.


Why do people say this? When has any developer or publisher ever sold their IPs? EVER? Seriously? A merger or acquisition is more likely.

People should stop making nonsensical predictions.


Remember THQ?


THQ liquidated its assets (including its IPs) upon dissolution. They didn't sell IPs to stay afloat which would be absurd. Licensing IPs to others for cash would be another story.

If they would just release a cross-platform Monster Hunter, the world would come together and sing!

Brand power means a lot.

I could honestly see another publisher/first party rather than just buy the franchises, buy Capcom outright.

The answer is simple:

Super Street Fighter IV Turbo: Special Championship Edition (Now available with 4K resolution!!!)


The PS4 and XO probably can't even run the original SF4 in 4k resolution...

Im just going to leave this here again for you TC.

My post taken from the PS4 board.

TC, that WHOLE article is taken out of context.
The reply to that tweet by Ono-San was that Capcom wouldn't give him the cash to bring Ultra Street Fighter 4 to the PS4/XboxOne.

Nowhere does it say that they don't have the cash to develop Street Fighter 5

With Monster Hunter 4 shipping 4 Million units + in Japan, i'm sure that Capcom are now rolling in the cash.

Also, sf iv is very ugly. I doubt a next gen game would look good.


Agreed, they should go back to 2D, not 2.5D and make the characters look like they are supposed to look, and not super buff.

Ultra sf iv isnt coming to wii u.

Also, sf iv is very ugly. I doubt a next gen game would look good.


Ugly? It has a unique style to its animation. The incorporation of Japanese brush strokes makes it an interesting concept. You forgot to mention it's the most balanced fighting game in history.

Most balanced? Close, but no.

I know Capcom deserves the hate it gets, but I'm worried.

They're gonna focus more on smartphones because of this tech avantgarde BS of western gaming companies pushing competition into needing to invest too much to make profitable games.

You guys know he could just as easily be referring to staff as money, right? Nintendo has 5 billion+ USD in pure cash, but still have limited resources and are expanding because of it.
