Capcom Big Wig Quits.


Back In April Capcom informed investors that the company would be making some serious changes after the likes of DMC and Resident Evil 6 failed to live up to expectations. The first of these big changes will be job cuts and the first of those comes in the form of Senior Vice President Christian Svensson who has announced that not only has he, “voluntarily” left his post but others will soon follow.
“Sadly, I’m not the only one affected by the reorganization today. Over the next few days, I’ll be gathering resumes from as many as I can and will be sending them out to my contacts around the industry to see if there’s a ‘love connection’ to be made.” Said Mr. Svensson via Facebook before adding.
“I’ve had the opportunity to interface with the best fans any company could ever hope to have. I know that I wasn’t always able to deliver what they wanted, but I promise that I did my best to champion their needs and wants. So thank you to the fans who made my job rewarding, challenging, and, if nothing else, interesting. While I wish the company the best of luck, Capcom is going in a different direction and the need for people at my level, relative to other areas, is lacking, those who know me well, know that I’ve been ready to go for quite some time.”
“We tried some things that worked. We tried others that didn’t. We fought fights that were worth fighting and even won a few. I’m proud of what we accomplished.”
What Mr. Svensson’s resignation will mean for Capcom in the long term is impossible to predict but with many fans firmly believing that a man in his position would have had a big hand in the redirection of the Devil May Cry series and the creation of unpopular titles like Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City, a Capcom less  Christian Svensson could really change things for the better.
