Capcom's Vancouver studio is shutting down Puzzle Fighter


Capcom Vancouver has announced that not even six months into its lifespan, it will be shutting down its mobile game Puzzle Fighter.

Released only a few months ago at the end of past year, Capcom's Puzzle Fighter brought together the many familiar faces and franchises from across Capcom's properties together into a free-to-play mobile experience, though it appears that the game will be coming to an end this summer. Locked characters and stages will also be available for free.

The game is being removed from the App Store and Google Play on July 1st. Select characters like Dr.

All forms of in-app purchases will be disabled on April 23rd, but players will still be able to spend the in-game currency that they already have. Wily, will be added to the game later today, April 20, while Ada Wong and a pair of stages-Darminor and Uroboros Laboratory-arrive on April 23. It is a sudden and painful ending to an incredibly fun game, and while some dedicated players are disheartened for the inevitable ending of Puzzle Fighter, many others are thankful to have been able to experience the genius creation. Puzzle Fighter has brilliantly adapted to mobile devices so that the game could hold its classic Street Fighter combat style, while also remaining compatible. It was developed by Capcom Vancouver, the studio best known for the Dead Rising series.

The studio restructured in February resulting in a number of layoffs.
