Capcom is supporting PC gaming more and more, according to recent statements by the publisher’s vice-president, Christian Svensson.

In posts on the Capcom Unity site spotted by, Sevensson wrote: “From the moment I walked in nearly six years ago, I viewed PC as extremely important for the company, not just to grow a new audience for our brands, but because of what the PC market teaches a company.”

He added: “As we continue to expand our businesses in Russia, China, Korea and Brazil, the PC becomes increasingly important as it is the primary platform in those territories.”

Svensson pointed out that Capcom has more upcoming PC games ports than ever before, such as Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, Dead Rising 2 Off The Record, Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City and more.

While not mentioned in the article, Capcom is also currently the sole game publisher for the non-profit PC Gaming Alliance, of which Svensson is a board member.
