Clarification: An earlier version of this story said that the prize pool for Capcom Cup 2015 is confirmed to be at least $500,000. This is incorrect.


According to Capcom's Associate Director of Brand Marketing and eSports Matt Dahlgren, the $500,000 prize pool is for the entire Capcom Pro Tour 2015 season, of which the Capcom Cup tournament is part of. We apologize for the error.

Earlier: Yoshinori Ono took the stage after the Capcom Cup finals, and confirmed that Capcom Cup will in fact be returning next year, but that wasn't all.

He also noted that thanks to the partnership with Sony, they can make the event even bigger than it already was, and the total prize pool for Capcom Cup 2015 all of the tournaments involved in the Capcom Pro Tour season for 2015 is confirmed to be at least $500,000, meaning that the stakes are even higher next year.

Please look forward to further announcements regarding Capcom Cup 2015 in the near future.
