Report: Capcom Europe to be Hit with Huge Layoffs - NewsWilliam D'Angelo, posted on 03 October 2013 / 4,674 Views
Capcom Europe is undergoing a restructure as the Western business of Capcom struggles. Several titles have failed to meet sails expectations. According to a report at MCVUK more than half of the staff at Capcom Europe will be laid off.
"Following a restructure at its US operation, Capcom’s European organisation is currently evaluating its structure to ensure it is in the best position to take advantage of the changing market conditions the industry is facing," said a Capcom spokesperson.
This year Capcom cancelled several titles and will no longer use external development teams. DmC: Devil May Cry and Resident Evil 6 have both failed to meet sales expectations, and Capcom's latest title, lost Planet 3, has failed to make an impact.
