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.
