Capcom's Senior VP Christian "Sven" Svensson says the company is re-evaluating its DLC process and the future of on-disc DLC in its games.
"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."
Sven noted that current upcoming Capcom-developed titles like Dragon's Dogma won't be changed due to the development cycle ceasing and post-release DLC process finalised, as well as its schedule for launch within the next week and a bit.
Regarding Dragon's Dogma's DLC plans, Sven stated that "the decision to include some additional (but not all planned additional) game content for the game on disc was made at the beginning of the game’s development cycle as at the time this was determined to be the most efficient way of ensuring certain content was made available. Owners of Dragon’s Dogma will be able to further their gameplay experience with the release of additional quests, weapons and other items in the months following the game going on sale."
You may remember reading a little over a month ago that Capcom was in hot water over on disc DLC. Fans and the Better Business Bureau expressed concern on Capcom's DLC practices due to a bunch of hackers discovering 12 DLC characters planned for Street Fighter X Tekken were actually on-disc, with Capcom justifying their choice under the argument that there is no real distinction between DLC which is locked on the disc to unlock later, and DLC released later and downloaded, “other than the delivery mechanism”.
