“I’m still involved in all of the projects that I’m currently working on,” says Ono.
Yesterday, we broke the news to you that Capcom’s legendary designer Yoshinori Ono had left his job at Capcom Vancouver, and possibly Capcom as a whole, which would have been the end of an era. Ono is known best for his work on the Street Fighter (and associated) series of fighting games.
As it turns out, he may have quit his gig at Capcom Vancouver, but he is still working at Capcom proper- he seems to be currently working on an as yet unannounced PS4 game, according to his LinkedIn profile. According to his Twitter, “My position within Capcom has not changed and I’m still involved in all of the projects that I’m currently working on. Only my role for Capcom Vancouver has ended.”
Presumably, whatever game he is working on for PlayStation 4 will also be coming out for Xbox One, as Capcom releases very few exclusives these days. Stay tuned for updates anyway.
