Yoshinori Ono has departed Dead Rising 3 studio Capcom Vancouver, but will continue to work with the company at which he made his name.
Ono revealed yesterday that he was leaving Capcom Vancouver, tweeting "I resigned from the director position about Capcom Vancouver. Thanks good staff of Capcom Vancouver, and Dead Rising staff.” He later added, "I had take some time, I think over very carefully about next things. I'd like to watch TV for Brazil World Cup before thinking it!”
The tweets prompted speculation from some outlets that Ono had left Capcom completely. However, presumably after watching the dreary Iran v Nigeria match and the destruction of Ronaldo and co at the hands of the Germans, Ono has shed a little more light on the situation.
"My position within Capcom has not changed and I'm still involved in all of the projects that I'm currently working on," tweeted Ono. ”Only my role for Capcom Vancouver has ended.”
Ono will continue his roles as Capcom corporate officer and Street Fighter producer.
