Capcom Europe Undergoing Major RestructuringLuke Brown |
As a result of not meeting sales expectations over the course of the past year, it appears Capcom will be consolidating a number or roles at its European branch.
According to MCV, the restructuring at Capcom Europe will see more than half of the jobs at the company merge. The other half of the redundancies will unfortunately be let go from the company.
"Following a restructure at its U.S. operation, Capcom’s European organization 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,” a spokesperson told the site.
If you recall, a similar unfortunate situation befell the U.S. branch earlier this year, with senior VP of planning and business development Christian Svensson leaving the company voluntarily as a result. It's never good to hear about publishers and developers downsizing, but it's been an all too common sight these past few years. With budgets and expectations soaring higher every year, it's also a trend unlikely to end any time soon.
