Is Dimps recruiting for Street Fighter 5? Capcom working with the developer on a new next-generation fighting game project

Posted by Cheng Kai 'KarbyP' Sim • September 1, 2014 at 11:10 a.m. PDT

Capcom and Dimps are currently in search of talented software engineers, CG designers and video game planners to work on a new fighting game for next-generation platforms, a front page ad on recruitment site Imagica Digitalscape has revealed.


Although Dimps -- the development studio that Capcom commissioned to make Street Fighter 4 and Super Street Fighter 4 -- was not involved in the development work for Ultra Street Fighter 4, Capcom's Yoshinori Ono has recently made the studio an offer to make a new fighting game that utilizes the latest cutting-edge technology, Dimps director Takashi Tsukamoto wrote in his address to potential applicants.

Could this new next-generation fighting game project be Street Fighter 5?

The title of the new game itself was not mentioned in the recruitment ad -- but maybe you can fish out some hints in the brief messages Yoshinori Ono and Takashi Tsukamoto wrote for potential applicants, translated by us below.
