Fans of Darkstalkers and Capcom vs. SNK have had to patiently stand idle while Street Fighter, Marvel and even Tekken are getting a turn at the Capcom fighting wheel. Unfortunately, they're going to be waiting in line for a very long time, because neither series is getting a new game soon.

"Right now we're focused on Street Fighter X Tekken, SSFIV: 3D Edition, Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and maybe something else somewhere," says US VP Christian Svensson. "That's more than enough fighting products for an audience to digest in the near term without overly cannibalizing each other.

"We also only have so many development resources. Not just any team can make a credible fighting game and we have loads of requests for lots of titles that we don't have the resources to make. While we listen very closely to fan requests, any product decisions have to overlay positively against strategic objectives and be prioritised against product viability. It takes years to make a game (that's multiple years), even an HD Remix, so while we may get to them some day, that day is still likely to be a ways off."

Looks like my dream of Capcom vs. Gospel Bill will never happen now.
