Newsbrief: Capcom is undergoing significant restructuring and is letting go of several key U.S. staff, Gamasutra has learned.

One of those affected is Christian Svensson, heretofore Senior Vice President of Planning and Business Development. In commenting publicly about his departure, Svensson said:

"This departure is not a bad thing for me and its happening mostly because Id suggested it during the early planning for todays reorg. While I wish the company the best of luck, Capcom is going in a different direction and the need for people at my level, relative to other areas, is lacking. Those who know me well, know that Ive been ready to go for quite some time."

Gamasutra has received reports of several other employees being let go as a result of the restructuring but the full extent of today's layoffs is not yet clear. We have reached out to Capcom for further comment. If you have been affected by today's events, please consider getting in touch with us at news@gamasutra.com.
