Japanese publisher Capcom has confirmed that it will be providing software support for all three forthcoming home console platforms, but concerns over the firm's financial health have precipitated a drop in its share price. "We will be supplying games for the next-generation video game consoles that should be released around the end of 2005 by Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo," according to Capcom board member Kazuhiro Abe.
At present, it's expected that Microsoft will launch the Xbox 2 in late 2005, with Nintendo and Sony following with their next-generation hardware in 2006, but Abe's comments may fuel speculation that PS2 and Revolution have moved up the schedule. Despite Capcom's commitment to the next-generation hardware, however, the firm has experienced a significant fall in its share price on the Tokyo Stock Exchange in recent days as concerns mount among investors over its financial health.
