Capcom Re-evaluating On-Disc DLC
On-disc DLC has been the subject of controversy over the past few years, and at least one publisher says it's reevaluating the strategy for future releases. Christian Svensson, senior vice president at Capcom, says the company has been listening to fan outrage and may change the way post-launch content is delivered in the future.
"We would like to assure you that we have been listening to your comments and as such have begun the process of re-evaluating how such additional game content is delivered in the future," Svensson wrote on the official Capcom blog. "As this process has only just commenced in the past month or so, there will be some titles, where development began some time ago and that are scheduled for release in the coming months, for which we are unable to make changes to the way some of their post-release content is delivered."
Svensson then explained that the upcoming action RPG Dragon's Dogma was already deep in production before this internal conversation started, so some – but not all – of the game's DLC will be contained on the game disc.
