Producer Ben Judd leaves Capcom

Bionic Commando man follows Inafune out the door

Capcom veteran Ben Judd will be leaving the company to head up a new Japanese talent agency, Digital Development Management, it's been revealed.

Judd, a former translator who climbed the ranks to head up the new Bionic Commando, will work helping developers meet publishers, along with negotiating deals and finding outsource opportunities.


As one of few Western Japan-based producers, at Capcom Judd worked on such major franchises as Resident Evil, Devil May Cry and Mega Man.

Judd's departure follows the sudden resignation of Mega Man creator Kenji Inafune last year, who later resurfaced with a new blog on which he declared his interest in continuing game development, as well as other projects.
