Staff reorganization at Capcom has resulted in the loss of senior vice president Christian Svensson, along with an undetermined number of other employees.
News of restructuring at Capcom comes from Svensson himself, who posted about his departure on Facebook.
“Sadly, I’m not the only one affected by the reorganization today. Over the next few days, I’ll be gathering resumes from as many as I can and will be sending them out to my contacts around the industry to see if there’s a ‘love connection’ to be be made.”
Svensson began his career as a games journalist before joining Midway, then later Capcom. He has been with the company for eight years, and was known for his very active communication with fans on the Capcom-Unity blog and forums.
“While I wish the company the best of luck, Capcom is going in a different direction and the need for people at my level, relative to other areas, is lacking,” Svensson said. “Those who know me well, know that I’ve been ready to go for quite some time. We tried some things that worked. We tried others that didn’t. We fought fights that were worth fighting and even won a few. I’m proud of what we accomplished.”
