Capcom Working On "PC-Lead" Projects

Capcom do a pretty good job getting console games to the PC, but then, those are just ports. Building games specifically for the PC, well, that's something else.


But it's something they'll be doing in the next few years, with Capcom's Christian Svensson telling VG247 "We do have a couple of products in development which are PC-lead, that are not announced yet. That doesn't mean that that content isn't also going to show up on console, because it will."

"But the pedigree of the team and the primary focus of the design is around the PC, and the largest forecast is on PC for at least one of these projects."


What's a "PC-lead" project? It's a game built with the PC in mind, but able to be ported to console. Think Oblivion and you'll be on the right track.

I've not seen much "success" software-wise from traditionally console-focused devs working on PC titles, because they're really two entirely different kinds of creature - though I suppose the gap is much less than what is was in the last two generations. Especially with dual-channel ports of FPS titles, though that likely has much more to do with Xbox/x86 interrelations than anything else. Regardless, I still want to see something other than FPS coming to the PC.

Come on, Capcom. Don't mess this up.
