Ryosuke Yoshida, a Capcom designer who worked on Devil May Cry 5 and Monster Hunter Generations, has announced his departure from the studio to pursue next-generation development overseas.
Capcom Design Leaves For Next-Gen Development
Yoshida-san confirmed the news on Twitter, noting he had been with the Resident Evil creator for 12 years.
On a personal note,I quit Capcom on July 4. I was very happy to be able to develop for 12 years at Capcom. From now on, I will leave Japan and go overseas to develop games for next-gen. (I work from home in JP until COVID-19 calms down.) I will continue doing my best！
In addition to working on Devil May Cry 5, which he was responsible for creating some of the game’s enemies, Yoshida also received ‘Special Thanks’ credit for Resident Evil 5 and its Gold Edition re-release.
Capcom is busy working on Resident Evil 8, aka Resident Evil Village, for PS5, PC and Xbox Series X. The game is currently slated to launch at some point in 2021. The game has reportedly been in the works for 3.5 years and will conclude the story established in Resident Evil 7 Biohazard.
Hopefully we’ll hear about Yoshida’s next move in the not-too-distant future.
