Capcom Europe Gets Ready For Major Layoffs

Over 50% of CapCom's workforce will be laid off.

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 3Resident Evil 6, and DmC: Devil May Cry, among other titles.  

It isn’t new news about how tough it is to be in this industry as we have seen many cases of other layoffs being reported, such as at SEGA of America, Sony, and EA.

What are your thoughts on the industry and/or on Capcom Europe laying off more than half of their employees?
