Capcom clarifies game dev changes to focus on quality not deadlines -

Capcom has clarified comments made last week by chairman and CEO Kenzo Tsujimoto regarding changes in the publisher's development process in an effort to focus on hitting quality targets.

After the disappointing 1.4 million sales of Street Fighter 5, Tsujimoto said: "It's best to spend a little more time in developing and running a high-quality title that will perform well globally."

In a FY2015 Financial Results Question and Answer Summary released today, Capcom confirmed that only a small number of titles have had their development schedule adjusted.

"For games to be hits at the global level they must be high quality. To this end, as a result of judging it necessary to spend a little more time on the development and operation of titles that are not yet up to that standard, we have revised the development periods for a small number of titles," explained the Capcom Q&A.

"Rather than absolutely holding to sales periods or development deadlines, in the pursuit of quality that wholly satisfies our users we will carry out development that prioritizes completeness even if it requires some scheduling adjustments."

Capcom hasn't said which titles are affected by the changes.
