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, because Capcom kinda forgot about it.
There’s still some life signs in the project though. When asked about the game via Eurogamer, Yoshinori Ono said that the game still has a developed concept that seems promising.
“I haven’t been called Mr. Deep Down quite yet. The original team is clearly no longer together at this point, but people might have noticed that we’ve kept the trademark registered, and it’s not been completely given up on.
Every year we examine titles we’re doing in future, and we bring up projects to approve and move forward. There’s not much I can say about it, but if you’ve noticed we’ve kept the trademark it means we haven’t given up on the title completely.”
If the stars align, would Deep Down be the latest game to continue Capcom’s redemption arc following Devil May Cry V and the Resident Evil 2 REmake? Time will tell.
