In a piece of somber news, we’ve learned that Capcom’s Senior Product Manager of fighting games, Matt Dhalgren — who many may remember from his appearances as the host of Cross Assault — will be departing the company after nearly a decade-long career.
Beginning with Capcom as an Associate Product Marketing Manager, “Matt Deezie’s” credits include assisting with the execution of marketing campaigns of various titles, such as MotoGP’08, Lost Planet 2, Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, Street Fighter X Tekken, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers and Street Fighter V, as well as the company’s highest-selling game of all-time, Resident Evil 5 and its Gold Edition.
His final credit with the company will be as the Director of Brand Marketing for the recently-released Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.
Speaking to EventHubs, Matt noted that, “It is difficult for me to leave, but [I] am extremely grateful for my time spent at Capcom, and [am] excited for the next chapter of my career. I look forward to rooting for Capcom’s success as a fan.”
Dhalgren also mentioned that he has “grown here tremendously, both personally and professionally, and have been given the opportunity to work with so many truly amazing people. I’m very proud of the projects I was able to influence, most particularly our fighting games and launching the Capcom Pro Tour.” Dhalgren also served as one of the main producers behind the CPT and Capcom’s e-sports endeavors, in addition to being a popular source of public relations between Capcom and the fighting game community.
We here at Shoryuken would like to wish Matt Dhalgren all the best as he continues onward towards a new career path.
