According to a report on Siliconera, Capcom fighting game manager Matt Dahlgren said that the Darkstalkers Resurrection rerelease did not meet sales expectations. "Darkstalkers Resurrection did not perform as well as we would have liked to hope. You never know what the future may hold, but Street Fighter is definitely not dead. There is nothing Darkstalkers on the immediate horizon for sure," he said.

Previously at New York Comic-Con 2012, Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono showed off a teaser for a new Darkstalkers game featuring the characters Demitri and Lord Raptor. Capcom also experienced layoffs early this month, with senior vice president Christian Svensson leaving the company.
