It's official, Keiji Inafune, Head of Research and Development at Capcom, is leaving his job. In the past, he stated that he hated his job and wanted to quit if he could. Well, he got his wish and is now leaving the company.
What is uncertain is the future of games that he created. Mega Man, Onimusha, Dead Rising and Lost Planet are games he developed and created. If there were to be future titles of these series, Inafune will no longer be involved. What is interesting though, is Mega Man Legends 3 has been announced and Megaman Universe is on the way to the U.S. It's unknown if the development of the games have gone gold but without Inafune, the future direction of these games is also unclear.
Either way, it's a sad day for Capcom and for those who truly loved his creations; myself included. I wish him the best in his future endeavors.
