Authored by Tyler Colp
A major restructuring following a rough year for Capcom Europe will see more than half of its staff laid off, MCVUK reports.
Several other jobs, according to the report, will be merged.
“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 Capcom representative told MCVUK.
The restructuring comes after multiple Capcom releases failed to meet the company’s sales expectations, including Resident Evil 6 and DmC: Devil May Cry.
Capcom reported a significant drop in income for its fiscal year ending March 31, 2013.
