Capcom released a document detailing its upcoming financial and development strategies, and in the slides there are quite a few pieces of information on what the publishers plan to do during the current fiscal year and beyond.
Interesting are their plans for the console business, that include reinforcing the DLC strategy (is anyone really surprised here?), enhancing quality and accumulate know-how by developing more titles internally and realigning the lineup of titles.
Strengthening the online games business is also mentioned, and in particular the development of more PC games outside Japan and more online-only games like Deep Down on PS4 (that received two new lovely screenshots just today) is planned. Unsurprisingly, the mobile market is also an area of interest with several titles listed, including to belonging to the Monster Hunter franchise.
Finally, six “powerful” series that Capcom plans to focus on are listed: Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Monster Hunter, Devil May Cry, Dead Rising and Lost Planet. These franchises are identified as the key to the publisher’s growth.
