THQ-Capcom call it quits

THQToo bad this loveteam called it quits. In Australia, Capcom and THQ has split-up, making what seems to be a definitive stir in the local game distribution scene. Says THQ’s Drew Taylor for PR and Promotions, “All good relationships eventually come to end. We certainly enjoyed working with them – with [distributing] Dead Rising, for instance. But at the end of the day, these things happen – and they happen quite often in this industry.”

So what now of Capcom’s Australian and New Zealand markets? Well, they’ve obviously weighed this separation far ahead than anyone’s anticipated as Activision has stepped up to the plate. The distributor has confirmed that they have agreed with Capcom to become its exclusive distributor for the aforementioned markets. This engagement coincides with the debut of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition for the Xbox 360 in the early part of 2007.

Says Activision’s Senior Vice President, Managing Director, Asia/Pacific Region, John Watts, “We are delighted to be working with one of the most admired Japanese video game companies in the world…the calibre of Capcom’s products is second to none…We are very excited to be working with Capcom and look forward to a long and successful partnership with them in [Australia and New Zealand].”
