Capcom: Another new IP set for 2012

COO teases another original title set to join Dragon's Dogma

Capcom is to announce another original game to be released next year, the company's European COO David Reeves has revealed.

Speaking to trade mag MCV, Reeves said Capcom is now refocusing its efforts around banner franchises Street Fighter and Resident Evil - hence the new titles announced this month.


"The strategy going forward is for those two franchises to form the basis of the portfolio," he said. "We're not saying it's going to be all Street Fighter and Resident Evil forever. There will be new projects, but they will be shot through with Capcom's quality NDA and subjected to a very rigorous green light process.

"We've already announced Asura's Wrath and Dragon's Dogma, and there will be at least one more original title from us that will come out next year."

According to comments made by Capcom's head production honcho Jun Takeuchi earlier this year, the company's third original game could be announced before the summer.

We bet it's got an apostrophe in the name.
