Remember Me: Capcom looks at franchise potential
Capcom right on the money.
Capcom believes more games under the Remember Me brand are possible.
Dotnot’s new IP was picked up by Capcom after originally being planned to be a PS3 exclusive. There are a lot of publishers that were interested in the IP but Capcom made the move first.
“I was searching on the internet at the time and saw some of this concept art, and I was taken aback. So we took a trip over to Paris and it all happened very quickly,” said Capcom’s marketing manager Michael Pattison to MCV.
“There were a number of very high profile publishers looking at it at the time and in fact there were deals waiting to be signed when we arrived. Capcom is not usually that quick to make decisions, but as soon as we saw this we had to put our hat in the ring.”
“For any new IP, particularly this late in the cycle, you are going to have to overindex in terms of the spend. It is something we see a long-term future in and we will invest appropriately.”
