It’s a sad day for members of the fighting community, as Capcom has announced that there are no immediate plans to continue the Darkstalkers franchise. Capcom fighting game manager Matt Dahlgren stated that Darkstalkers Resurrection did not perform as well as we would have liked to perform,” shortly after stating that, “You never know what the future may hold, but Street Fighter is definitely not dead.”

The Street Fighter statement comes in contrast to last years NYCC where capcom unveiled a teaser trailer for a new Darkstalkers game with the tagline “Darkstalkers are not dead.”  Whether you take that comment as a dig to the Darkstalker franchise or not, it seems pretty clear that Capcom is opting to hold off any future installments of the game in favor of their more profitable Street Fighter series.  When asked about the possibility of it, Dahlgren confirmed it by saying, “There is nothing Darkstalkers on the immediate horizon for sure.”

There's no problem that can't be fixed with fire. Doesn't matter what game. If that doesn't work, use more.
