About a week ago, Capcom had updated their financial forecast to include a "special loss" of $73 million, which the company mostly attributes to a number of canceled projects. Well, turns out, none of those games had even been announced yet, and most were set to arrive between April 2014 and March 2015.
Obviously, they're not coming out anymore, but the publisher clarified that none of the projects have to do with currently announced titles. That's comforting, isn't it?
A Q&A released to the public reads:
"There were a few titles scheduled for the current fiscal year, but most of the cancelations were for releases planned in the fiscal year ending March 2015 and subsequent fiscal years. No titles that had already been announced were canceled."
Capcom also stated previously that they hoped to "strengthen digital strategies" by releasing more DLC, since additional paid content tends to be a safe bet and quick fix. In addition to DLC, however, Capcom remains invested in home video games, noting that despite the drop in packaged software sales, they believe consoles and online sales will improve over time.
On this matter, the publisher states:
"We believe that sales in the consoel and online category (downloadable content and other products) will continue to increase even if home video game packaged software sales decline. Developing content for the home video game market will remain the core element of our strategy."
