Capcom To Reconsider DLC Policies
There will be no more locked on-disc content in Capcom games.
Capcom's Senior Vice President, Christian Svensson, said via Capcom-Unity yesterday that they "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." In other words, they're going to cut back on the on-disc DLC that has continuously infuriated their consumers. Sadly, Dragon's Dogma is not included in this policy change because the decision to include on-disc DLC was "made at the beginning of the game’s development cycle." Too bad; a policy change like that would have done a lot to invigorate a new IP like Dragon's Dogma. Here's hoping Capcom pulls a strong play and makes all of that on-disc DLC free, as that would go a long, long way towards winning over their former fans once more.
