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.
