Capcom has announced that it will establish a new division tentatively named Capcom-PC. It will be responsible for publishing PC titles developed by North American and European companies in Japan, porting console games developed by Capcom and third parties to the PC, and developing original titles for the PC.
Capcom-PC is currently scheduled to publish the PC titles Empire Earth, Aliens Versus Predator 2, and NASCAR Racing 4 in Japan this winter. It also plans to port Mega Man X5 and Dino Crisis 2 to the PC sometime this winter. The company also commented that it is currently working on a network title that will appeal to a wide range of consumers, though no further details on the project were revealed.
Capcom has previously released ports of popular series like Resident Evil and Mega Man on the PC, and it has also published PC titles such as Tribes 2 and Diablo II in Japan.
