The majority of the current fighting game community probably knows Matt Dahlgren as the guy that hands out giant checks to the winners at Capcom Cup, but his run with the major video game company spanned nearly a decade.

That run has reached its conclusion as the Senior Product Manager at Capcom on the fighting game brands is now moving on to other things as he and Capcom are parting ways.

Dahlgren was in charge of marketing campaigns for Street Fighter 5, Street Fighter X Tekken, Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition and assisted in the marketing campaigns for Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers and Capcom's best selling game of all time: Resident Evil 5.

He was also heavily involved in the production of the Capcom Pro Tour, was one of the more prominent representatives the fighting game community looked to for information during the development of Street Fighter 5.

We reached out to Dahlgren, who had a few words to share on the matter.

"After over 9 years, I have decided to move on from Capcom. Being able to work for a company and on brands that I have loved since childhood has been a dream come true," he said.

"I have grown here tremendously, both personally and professionally, and have been given the opportunity to work with so many truly amazing people. I’m very proud of the projects I have been able to influence, most particularly our fighting games and launching the Capcom Pro Tour."

"It is difficult for me to leave, but am extremely grateful for my time spent at Capcom, and excited for the next chapter of my career. I look forward to rooting for Capcom’s success as a fan."

We would like to take a moment to thank Dahlgren for his work in the fighting game community thus far, and wish him the best in his future ventures.
