“We’ll always be experimenting with new IP. This generation of hardware alone has given us:
Age of Booty
Zack & Wiki
We Love Golf
Ghost Trick (recently announced)
If you wanted to take a more liberal view of something like TvC, you could call it a new franchise for us, even if it isn’t new IP (all characters have previously existed).
And I’m sure some others I’m forgetting off the top of my head. Naturally, we always need to be introducing new IP so that we have some percentage of them “stick” to become ongoing franchises. But it’s always a balancing act both to keep fans happy and to manage risk.” - Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development
I’d have to say that Capcom is doing a pretty good job of keeping the old alive, and bringing in the new. The company seems to be a bit hit or miss lately, but we all have our ups and downs.
