Capcom Remains Dedicated To New IPs

Established franchises are great but without new IPs, you'll eventually just keep spinning your wheels.

It seems Capcom understands this. During a post-earnings Q&A session, the Resident Evil publisher explained that new franchises are a "priority."

"Creating new intellectual property is one of our priorities. We allocate about 20 percent of our investments each fiscal year to intellectual property and are constantly working on developing new property."

They added that they don't anticipate new IPs to be huge blockbusters right out of the gate. They're not looking for "an immediate hit;" they just want to "build up this property in stages wile incorporating the feedback and wishes of users." Some gamers question Capcom's commitment to their fans based on previous years, especially in regards to the direction of their esteemed Resident Evil franchise.

As for a new IP, well...we're still waiting on a really special one from this particular publisher. Haven't seen one in some time.

I don't get why a company with several insanely popular franchises would choose to either A. ignore them completely (Onimusha) or B. bastardize them to the point of no longer being anything like what loyal fans have come to expect (RE6)
