Remember a while back in 2013 when Capcom announced a free-to-play dungeon crawler called Deep Down? We don’t blame you if you don’t,Â because Capcom kinda forgot about it.
There’s still some life signs in the project though.Â When asked about the game viaÂ Eurogamer, Yoshinori Ono said that the game still has a developed concept that seems promising.
“I havenâ€™t been called Mr.Â Deep DownÂ quite yet. The original team is clearly no longer together at this point, but people might have noticed that weâ€™ve kept the trademark registered, and itâ€™s not been completely given up on.
Every year we examine titles weâ€™re doing in future, and we bring up projects to approve and move forward. Thereâ€™s not much I can say about it, but if youâ€™ve noticed weâ€™ve kept the trademark it means we havenâ€™t given up on the title completely.”
If the stars align, wouldÂ Deep Down be the latest game to continue Capcom’s redemption arc following Devil May Cry V and theÂ Resident Evil 2 REmake? Time will tell.
