Fans of Capcom have been looking forward to their yearly Captivate event since 2008 now, which is a private media event that Capcom hosts and will usually announce new games and other company-related news. It has seen a lot of cool announcements over the years and served as a great platform for Capcom to give their games a spotlight. That is until this year, where Capcom has decided to skip the event entirely to focus on other events, it looks like.
There are a ton of events for Capcom to shine in this year, still, even without their yearly Captivate event. They will be focusing on the upcoming E3, Comic-Cons and PAX events instead and use those to do what Captivate has traditionally done. This is not exactly a terrible idea as those events are all, to varying degrees, open to more people and get a lot more attention. Sure, they’ll have to deal with other companies making big announcements as well, but if last year’s E3 gives us any clues as to what expect this year, Capcom could potentially steal the show.
