Corporate restructuring on a 'major scale' within Capcom's European division means that "more than half" of the workforce will find their positions made redundant. This follows a 'bad fiscal year' for the company.

Capcom confirmed the EU business is now "currently evaluating its structure" following in the footsteps of their US operations. Missed targets have hit hard.

Both DmC: Devil May Cry and Resident Evil 6 have undersold, with Lost Planet 3 failing to cover its development costs or enter in the UK chart top 25 at launch.

"Following a restructure at its US operation, Capcom's European 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," said Capcom.

The estimate of "more than half" of its workforce going in Europe is reported by MCV.
