In a recent article from Gameindustry, it was revealed that Capcom might be in serious financial problems.  With only $152 million dollars in bank, the celebrated third party company is in dire danger of going the THQ way.

While $152 millions might look like a huge sum to the average Joe, for a company of such caliber, it is nothing.  In comparison, Grand Theft Auto V (which is an amazing game) cost $250 million dollars to produce and market; Nintendo makes this amount of money in roughly three months.

According to Capcom's COO, Haruhiro Tsujimoto, Capcom will try to mitigate the situation by implementing big changes, notably a bigger focus on DLC.

"I regret to say that, up to now, we had few plans for the full-scale implementation of DLC." From here on out, we need to focus on the long-term provision of content starting at the earliest stages of development. Furthermore, in terms of user response, if the additional related content we are providing continually to users online is deemed uninteresting from the start, there will be no ongoing business to pursue. This means that, more than ever before, the creation of underlying content is the key to success."

If you were one to hate Capcom's habit of milking a franchise to death and having on-disk DLC, it seems like they will be even more aggressive with these tactics in the foreseeable future.

What is worse, and could prove even more catastrophic for Capcom is the arrival of the next generation of consoles which are sure to bump up the average production cost of AAA games.

Personally, this news really affects me. You see, Capcom is one, if not, my favorite video game company.  I have been playing their games for as long as I can remember. From the classic Megaman and Strider on the NES, to the Street Fighter II on the SNES, Resident Evil on Playstation, Devil May Cry on Playstation 2, Dead Rising on Xbox and so much more!

Take a look at my blog for more thoughts on this and more!

Hey man, love your work. I referenced one of your Megaman pieces. My rendition is a hand drawn black and white version. Didn't quite hit the perspective you did but I enjoyed it all the same.

My rendition can be found here: dr0ski.deviantart.com/art/Mega…
