While Comic-Con has typically been the place for Capcom to offer some sort of hint about the future of the Darkstalkers series, talks during this year’s event offered a more somber look forward. “Darkstalkers Resurrection did not perform as well as we would have liked to perform,” Capcom’s Matt Dahlgren relayed while speaking with Siliconera. “You never know what the future may hold, but Street Fighter is definitely not dead.”
This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, as former Senior Vice-President Christian Svensson previously expressed disappointment at their misunderstanding of the demand for a return to the series and Darkstalkers Resurrection’s low sales numbers, the latter of which was said to tie heavily into their plans for developing a brand new title.
Upon further questioning, Dahlgren had this to say: “There is nothing Darkstalkers on the immediate horizon for sure.”
