Capcom senior Vice-President Christian Svensson has expressed disappointment with sales for Darkstalkers Resurrection.
Taking to the Capcom Unity forums, Svensson acknowledged that the title had ranked well in digital sales charts, but had still not met the company's expectations.
"Sadly, it's not as high on that list as it really needs to be successful," he posted. "We're working on promotions and the like to improve the situation. We've not given up.
"But I'm disappointed in the opening sales response relative to any other fighting title we've put out on the same platforms given the frequency and urgency of requests we've had here over the last several years and the quality of the execution."
Svensson thanked those who have supported the series, and admitted that the company may have overestimated interest in a Darkstalkers reboot. "I'm more disappointed by my misread of the information in this particular case," he said.
