Capcom finds out that making great games based on the IPs they have is, *GASP*, actually good for business. Who knew except for everyone that plays video games?

Our initiatives are to (1) strengthen digital sales, (2) bolster our title lineup through the full-scale execution of our 60-month and 52-week maps and (3) awaken dormant intellectual properties

... ) we will revive dormant intellectual properties for which we have not recently released new titles by increasing the number of our developers.

http://www.capcom.co.jp/ir/english/data/pdf/annual/2019/annual_2019_01.pdf

As far as packaged software, Xbox was way in the rear this year, even behind the Switch, which didn't even get the same AAA content as Xbox and selling over five times less than Playstation. Full game downloads did VERY well, but no platform split was given on those.

However, Capcom is very pleased at the performance of the titles they've released recently. Ohhhh boy! I hope this means some new Dino Crisis, Darkstalkers and Onimusha entries possibly in the oven?

Also to note, they plan on expanding into other media more, which likely means more crappy RE movies are on the way. More remakes are in the pipeline as well.

What Capcom IPs need to make a return?

Deep Down. Maybe they could have it as a fake launch title for PS5 too. :D

All of them, really. Capcom has made so many great games that all of them deserve a remake. Top of my list is probably Ghost'n'Goblins. And make it 2D please. Also make a 3D Dino Crisis game which is scary as hell.

Shadow of Rome. But games kinda suck these days, so I don't know if I want another installment of a beloved franchise. It's like how I want Freedom Fighters to come back. Imagine a FF game these days. Gear levels, episodic content, microtransactions, multiplayer is pay2win.

Nevermind. Keep them in the past.

@vfighter: Nah, I still enjoy games. But as far as practices, dlc and the like, it's never been worse. Just like CTR. Nice remake of a childhood favorite. Shove in microtransactions.

Given Resident Evil 2's success Dino Crisis would seem the natural conclusion.

I'd take a revival of Power Stone or Darkstalkers.

What I really want most of all however, although it's not technically dead since X Dive just came out, is a new MMX game like Corrupted.

A game that looks like X1, but plays like X4-X6? Yes, please.

Capcom is my favorite third party dev again. RE2 and DMC5 were amazing. I loved MH as well and need to purchase the iceborne expansion. Even the last Megaman was fun. As far as old IP's i want back?

1. A Dragons Dogma sequel

2. A new Dark Stalkers that uses a similar visual style to the latest Guilty Gear.

3. RE3 and Code Veronica Remakes.

4. A high quality Megaman X sequel

5. Onimusha Warlords, think Nioh but with way better visuals.

6. A new Xmen game( it will probably never happen)

7. Power Stone

8. Megaman Legends

9. Okami

10. Final Fight

11. Saturday Night Slam Masters

PS: I've had to keep editing my post because I keep remembering all the bad ass IP's they own.

Lost Planet was ahead of its time when they wanted to give it an online co-op focus with the second game, it would totally work now.

I wouldn't trust capcom with any remake of 2D games. Just resident evil 3 remake that I never got to play is enough.

I heard people say that Capcom should let Arc System Works develop the next Darkstalkers... I definitely wouldn't be against that.

@BenjaminBanklin: I'd be ok with that. But Capcom is great at making fighting games. But Ark system works has mastered the anime look. I wouldn't mind seeing a Marvel vs Capcom game as well using cell shaded visuals but more based off a comic style.

Onimusha, as they did just do a HD re-release, and Dino Crisis. Both would likely fare very well with the recent success of the RE2 remake.

This would be a good candidate. Don't think they will use Marvel VS, it's tainted atm.

Either way, Darkstalkers or Dino Crisis, good shit.

These. And Viewtiful Joe.

...And Rival Schools

...And Heavy Metal Geomatrix

...But maybe base it on a licenced property people actually care about this time.

Well, let's start off with what I would truly like to see the most, a good Breath of Fire game. The first 3 are my favorite RPG's of all time, but everything after that fell off bad.

Other games I would love to see get some love are

A new Marvel vs Capcom game. Not that Infinite crap though, an actual newly numbered entry in the series.

A new Dino Crisis

A new Dragon's Dogma

A new Knights of the Round

A new Onimusha

A new Trojan (won't happen but would be cool)

Not remakes or reboots, I want brand new sequels, prequels, or alternate realities.
