In an interview with Famitsu, Capcom Representative Director Haruhiro Tsujimoto stated that future titles will have cross-play support. According to Tsujimoto, Exoprimal’s development was partially fueled by the desire to gain that experience and expertise. He believes that Capcom will need to make more games like Exoprimal, which will serve as testing grounds for the company’s future. [Thanks, ryokutya2089!]

Exporimal is a multiplayer dinosaur-hunting game that has crossplay and cross-platform compatibility. No matter what your friends play on, you will be able to play with them. The development team that worked on Exoprimal likely learned a lot in regards to making sure the game can support cross-play. Cross-play can be an important factor in whether a person decides to start a game or not.

Other tidbits of information Tsujimoto offered in the Famitsu interview include Capcom’s opinion on Ghost Trick Remaster, Street Fighter 6, and digital sales. First of all, it decided to release Ghost Trick Remaster specifically because of Ace Attorney’s international success. It knew that it would receive attention. Tsujimoto also stated that since Street Fighter 5 sold over 7 million copies, then Street Fighter 6 could sell over 10 million units in its lifetime. So it put everything it wanted to do with Street Fighter into 6, including more eSports focus and genre expansion.

Capcom will also start promoting some of its older titles. Since 2021, it has been able to sell games older than three years, and has expanded them with either new content or spin-offs. It will continue to do that. In order to decide which games it will focus on expanding or porting, it will check sales of its past games.

Street Fighter 6 will come out on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC via Steam on June 2, 2023.
