Capcom wants to make Remember Me 'a major franchise'

Remember Me

This week at Gamescom, Capcom introduced Remember Me, a new action-adventure game coming for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC from Dontnod Entertainment. Capcom senior producer Mat Hart said the publisher wants multiple games from Dontnod — a whole franchise, actually.

"We're looking to build a long-lasting relationship with them as a developer, and build this into a major franchise," Hart told Joystiq.

Capcom is looking at a May 2013 release window. "The thing is," said Hart, "if you leave it too late into next year, then you are starting to straddle that line where you're starting to move into the next-generation consoles. And what we want to do is make sure we launch this on the current generation of consoles, to really sell it in and establish it as a new IP. And then build the franchise out in line with the new consoles coming out."

Do you think Capcom is making a prudent decision releasing the game earlier rather than later?
