Capcom Shareholders Vote Not To Block Sale

Capcom is officially for sale. This iconic company has been around for more than 25 years and just a few days ago anyone would be able to buy their amazing IPs. 

What most of you probably didn’t know is that Capcom shareholders voted not to the block the company sale. This means that anyone can buy most of Capcom’s stock and own the company. I am very sad to see that Capcom has fallen on such hard times, but I think we all saw it coming.

Over the years their games has gotten worse [with the exception of Dead Rising 3] and their DLC policy has always been in question. One big question is who will step up and buy Capcom? What company would buy most of the stock and own Capcom? Or will everyone just buy the IPs and let Capcom die?

Obviously the three main names on everyone’s list is Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft. Honestly I don’t think Sony could afford that right now so I’m scratching them off my list. So that leaves Nintendo and Microsoft. Microsoft could probably buy a continent if they wanted to and if they decided to make Capcom an offer they would win, but Nintendo could possibly buy a few of their IPs before anyone could buy the company.

Megaman would do very well on the Wii U. What about Devil May Cry and Dragon’s Dogma 2? Has Dragon’s Dogma 2 been canceled because of this or is it still in development? I have so many questions, but I’d be surprised if I ever got any answers.

What if EA brought Capcom? Or Ubisoft? Those two companies are giants in the gaming world and have enough cash to do it.

If you had to choose what company would you want to see own Capcom? Nintendo is at the top of my list followed by Microsoft. Capcom has made some amazing games over the years and I’ll always be grateful to them for the fun that I’ve had in their blockbuster titles.

  1. Capcom used to be my favourite company, but I won’t shed any tears if they get bought out. In recent times they have milked fans with endless Street Fighters, treated Mega Man poorly and expect people to buy DLC to get the ending of their games. They reaped what they sowed.

    1. I agree, but they’ve made some pretty good games over the years too. I think we all saw this coming. I just wish Capcom would be like they used to be.

      I don’t have a problem with endless Street Fighter games :].

      1. I didn’t mind the endless Street Fighters until I bought the original Marvel vs Capcom 3. It felt like a bare bones release and a few months later they announced a better version. I felt very cheated.

  2. I am really sad to hear this. Street Fighter has been my “go to” for years. Capcom was such a fantastic company and had great product (other than dlc) for so many years.

    I don’t know who I could seriously consider as an owner for Capcom to handle its direction, but I will jokingly say Kevin Levine just because I want some even stranger plot in my fighting games.

    On the other hand, it would be nice if Monster Hunter went to all consoles (especially American), other than being a Sony or Nintendo exclusive.

    1. I agree. This is indeed shocking news. I grew up playing their games. I hope whoever gets this company or their IPs respect them and don’t destroy them.

      I think if anyone could do it than it should be Nintendo because they usually do really great jobs at making all of their games.
