After the bomb that was Bionic Commando, Capcom has decided to stop letting U.S. companies to develop games for them. The patriot in me is saying "Screw you Capcom! We know how to make games here in the U.S. of A.!" but the gamer in me says "What? No Bionic Commando 2: Electric Boogaloo?"
"Our experience with Bionic Commando has demonstrated the difficulty of outsourcing the development of new titles to overseas companies," said Tsujimoto over Christmas, reported by Kotaku.
"Nevertheless, we cannot develop a sufficient number of titles without using the resources of these companies. This is why we plan to continue using these alliances.
"We are considering ways to separate the roles of activities in Japan and overseas," he added. "We plan to develop new titles primarily in Japan. Overseas companies may be used mostly to develop titles for existing game series with well-established characters and universal themes. Overseas companies will also handle certain parts and/or line-ups of such games."
