Capcom to Focus on Reviving Older Franchises and “Dormant IP,” Starting with Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite
With upcoming titles such as Resident Evil VII: Biohazard and Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, Capcom is building a strong lineup of titles in 2017 and beyond, with possible titles in the future to include some of Capcom’s legacy franchises and titles.
In a press release from Capcom today confirming details and franchise sales for the Marvel vs. Capcom series, the company also confirmed that as part of its strategy moving forward into next year and beyond, Capcom will be “focused on reviving series that have not had new entries recently, or otherwise dormant IP.” Capcom also added that the company will look to “enhance its corporate value further by utilizing its library of rich contents .”
Specifically, Capcom explained that this initiative will begin with Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, with the last entry in the series having released five years ago (Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in 2011), and while no specific series, franchises, or titles were mentioned by the company just yet, hopefully some of the company’s legacy titles and series will get their chance to shine again in the coming years.
Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC in late 2017.
