Capcom recently released their financial results presentation for the 2017 fiscal year (April 2017 to March 2018). While most of the data didn’t really contain any surprises, they did include some things that hint at their plans for the near future.
As part of the presentation, Capcom has promised to release two major titles by March 31, 2019. Now, while these may not necessarily be fighting games, it’s hard not to consider the possibility with how big a role the company plays in the genre.
In addition to this, however, they’ve also stated that they plan to look at their dormant IPs and possibly release remakes. This may be the more exciting prospect for fighting game fans. Capcom has a number of dormant fighting game IPs — such as Darkstalkers and Rival Schools — that still have dedicated fan bases to this day. It is possible one of these IPs could be brought back, especially considering that there are still people within Capcom who would love to do so.
