Capcom’s told VG247 that its not currently working on any more updates to its historic fighting games, but will almost certainly revisit its older scrapper titles in the future.
“I’ll be honest: right now we have nothing in development, but we’ve been pleased with how our fighting games have performed and our re-releases have performed, so I’d be shocked if we didn’t explore that further,” Capcom US business chief Chris Svensson said in a phone interview yesterday.
The publisher’s recent fighter releases needed some space “to breathe,” added the exec.
“We have put out a fair number of fighting games in a very short window,” he said.
“We had HD Remix, Street Fighter IV, MvC2, we’ll have Tatsunoko in the pipeline, and we have who knows what coming that we can’t talk about yet, but suffice to say there’s been a lot of fighting activity out of Capcom in the last year-and-a-half, and we probably need to give all of those products a little room to breathe and perform before we do some more.”
Svensson was talking to us for this week’s podcast.

Street Fighter IV may have made its way to PC, but if you’re waiting for more recent Capcom fighters on your desktop you probably shouldn’t hold your breath.
“To get to Marvel Vs Capcom 2, there are no plans to bring it to PC, nor are there plans to bring HD remix to PC,” said Capcom US boss Christian Svennson, talking to VG247 for this week’s podcast.
Svensson said elsewhere in the interview that he’d been “satisfied” with SFIV PC sales, and that promotions to push the fighter’s PC SKU will be hitting soon.

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 will be hitting PSN and XBL in late July.
“MvC2 is not actually coming out on June 29, sorry guys. Not sure where that rumor came from, but it’s going to be closer to the end of July,” said Capcom via Twitter.
Reason it was rumored for June 29 was due to a May financial report released by Marvel.
Just keeping you informed.

Looks like a Capcom vs. Marvel 3 is not going to happen anytime soon, according to Capcom.
Capcom community manager Seth Killian was asked if gamers can expect the title any time soon by Joystiq during a media event yesterday, and his answer was not very hopeful.
“The short answer is no, that’s not any part of this deal,” he said.
“What we’re hoping is that if people get really juiced about this title, and we can show Marvel that there’s a lot of heat behind this, then they’ll open up the door for us to do something with ’3,’ which is something we’d love to do.”
The biggest problem, he said, has to do with licensing issues preventing further development.
However, there is the possibility of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 arcade sticks heading to retailers.
“It’s a discussion … we would love to make it happen,” he revealed. “If you saw the ‘leak’ of those MadCatz sticks, that was actually B.S. That was a complete fabrication, but it’s something we would love to do.”

Marvel Entertainment has slated Marvel vs. Capcom 2 for a June 29 release on PSN and Xbox Live.

Capcom can’t release newly-announced fight revamp Marvel Vs Capcom 2 on Wii because it only has download rights for the game.
“This is a downloadable play, not a retail play,” said Capcom’s ever-present Christian Svennson.
“We don’t actually have any retail rights on this project. And there’s no way to get anywhere near the Wiiware filesize limit here.”
Unfortunate. If you don’t own a 360 or PS3. Don’t forget the PS3 demo this week, 2D scrapper fans.
