Christian Svensson is kind of a big shot at Capcom. Why is this important? Because his words tend to be indicative of the company’s mindset as a whole… this means it’s kind of big when he admits to Capcom’s shame over the PC port of Resident Evil 4.
Resident Evil 4 was a part of the Capcom 5, a group of five games intended to be Gamecube exclusives (It didn’t work out, one was never released and three others were ported to the PS2), but ended up on other platforms. The PC port was a unanimously decided failure, being outsourced to Sourcenext.
When asked about the option of releasing Resident Evil 4 onto digital distributors, Christian Svensson replied…
“Sorry, but there’s enough people at Capcom who aren’t happy with that version and would prefer it not be in the digital marketplace.”
Humbling, really. But does this mean we’ll never truly get a great PC port of Resident Evil 4?Capcom Admits To Fairly Massive Mistake, Surprisingly,
