Capcom Europe will be undergoing a major restructuring following a difficult year for the company. Several of the high profile titles that were released in this past year have not performed as expected and as such, the company is expected to lay off more than 50% of its staff with several job mergers incoming.
“Following a restructure at its US operation, Capcom’s European organisation 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.”
These restructuring efforts are thought to be caused by failure of two key titles, including the recent DmC: Devil May Cry reboot, and Lost Planet 3.
