Despite just launching worldwide with much anticipation and hype last November, Capcom recently announced it is shutting down Puzzle Fighter, the casual mobile game based on characters from various classic and popular Capcom games, including Street Fighter, Devil May Cry, and Darkstalkers. Developed by the studio in Vancouver, the only reason given for the shutdown was the shift to focus manpower on the flagship Dead Rising franchise.
Puzzle Fighter wasn’t that bad a game, and it certainly doesn’t cost much to actually leave the game by itself without any regular updates. Perhaps part of the unspoken reason is that the game is not monetizing as well as Capcom would like it to be. Will there be a Dead Rising mobile game announced soon? No one knows, but Capcom sure has big plans for it.
