Capcom Swears Off Console Exclusives

Illustration for article titled Capcom Swears Off Console Exclusives

Capcom has decided its days of releasing games exclusively to one platform are over. In its fiscal 2008 shareholder's report, the home of Resident Evil stated:

"All major titles launched during the next fiscal year or thereafter will be developed as multi-platform games"

From here on in, Capcom will be developing all its titles using its proprietary MT Framework development kit, which should make it easy to cross-compile to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms.

I see nothing in that sentence that would prevent them from doing timed exclusives. They do say they won't develop exclusively for one side which is nice I guess. But weren't most of Capcom's games this fiscal year multi-platform?

And since most games are in development for a few years, isn't this statement repeating the obvious? Obviously the games you have already announced as multiplatform are multiplatform. Or do they mean future game development?

On a side note, is it just me or does that bicep look abnormally large?
