Dead Rising 3 producer Mike Jones from Capcom Vancouver has said everybody at the company is "a huge Capcom fan." They don't have any 'yeah, whatever' employees as "most people f**king love Capcom."

He admits Capcom's size makes it difficult to get "all those pieces moving in the right direction" speedily, and acknowledges mistakes but there's "a lot of big stuff" coming.

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.

The next major Resident Evil instalment won't be a repeat of Resident Evil 6 which, as Capcom marketing SVP Michael Pattison acknowledges, was trying to be "too many things to all people."

The term 'bloated' surfaced a lot in feedback, although Leon's missions "went down very well," they can't ignore what critic and fan feedback is telling them. There's "still a strong market" for survival horror.

Capcom may very well be announcing Resident Evil 7 next month at E3 in California if an alleged promotional poster still in the design phase is to be believed. It's best you keep that rumour-mill salt lick nearby.

Again, if the poster is to be believed, then Resi Evil 7 has the tag 'The War Ends Now'. Of course this could all be some 12-year-old on a sugar high playing around with Photoshop.

The previous forecast for their end of year fiscal by Capcom has been more-or-less on the money (no pun intended). An profit of £19.42 million was posted, which is down 52% year-on-year.

Resident Evil 6 "did not meet" their expectations with sales at 4.9 million, falling short of the 7 million they hoped for. DmC: Devil May Cry enjoyed "stable popularity" overseas, with no total sales mentioned.
