It is with great sadness that I announce today that I am to leave Capcom,” outgoing boss Neo said. I am incredibly proud to have had the chance to work with the team at Capcom Europe over the last two years. My successor, Hiroshi Tobisawa, has a long and distinguished record working at Capcom and I look forward to seeing what the company goes on to achieve under his management.”
