The recent anniversary of Dino Crisis revived a lot of fond memories from fans online. Many of whom made sure their request for a remaster / sequel was heard by Capcom and its PR department. And surprisingly, the company may have actually made note of this outpouring of emotion.
We can say that because they recently informed their investers that they have plans to “revive dormant intellectual properties”. Specifically titles that haven’t enjoyed a recent release.
And it is far from an empty promise as Capcom also outlined their plans to make use of more development teams – an expansion that would make an increase in their line-up an actual reality. Talk about putting their money where their mouth is!
This good news formed part of their financial report for this year, which said they “will revive dormant intellectual properties for which we have not recently released new titles by increasing the number of our developers.”
All this talk of breathing life into old classics is in no doubt encouraged by the success of the Resident Evil 2 remake, along with other success stories such as Monster Hunter World and Devil May Cry. In fact, Capcom described their performance as “indisputable successes.” Which translates into, “very good for our pockets.” Those deep, deep pockets…
However, no candidates for resuscitation have been named and they’re also lucky in the fact they have a number of strong current IPs to keep them busy. Therefore there is going to be a lot of competition between the past and present over who gets the most resources. We can only rely on Dino Crisis showing its teeth and scaring the others to the back of the queue. That and the fact all of the internet has already mentally reserved a copy.
Capcom. Take. Our. Money.
