Capcom Europe Gets Ready For Major Layoffs
As Capcom Europe undergoes restructuring efforts, over 50% of its workforce will be laid off. A Capcom representative explains that the "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.”
Capcom is making a similar move to that of their United States operation where they, too, underwent a restructure. Reasons for the restructuring come from financial losses that resulted from their inability to hit their target sales. The titles they failed to hit their target sale were Lost Planet 3, Resident Evil 6, and DmC: Devil May Cry, among other titles.
What are your thoughts on the industry and/or on Capcom Europe laying off more than half of their employees?
