Since the start of this generation, Capcom has pretty much been able to do no wrong. Churning out blockbuster after blockbuster, from Dead Rising in 2006 to Resident Evil 5 just a few months ago, the Japanese publisher has a very nice software catalog on the PS3 and XBox 360.
Capcom did stumble a bit, though, with the launch of Bionic Commando. The PSN/XBL Bionic Commando remake sent hopes soaring for Grin's re-invention of the franchise. Long story short, the game ended up being a critical and commercial dud, taking Grin under with it.
However, it seems like Capcom hasn't given up on the franchise yet. Community Manager Seth Killian said that the franchise is one Capcom would like to stay involved with, and the question is more of a "when and where", rather than a 'if'.
"It was big move for [Capcom] to try and reengage with [Bionic Commando]. I think its gonna be something, we'd like to find a way to stay involved in the Bionic Commando business," Killian said on the most recent 4G1U. "So where that ends up, who knows. When and where is really the question - as a franchise, it's not dead."
Those hoping for a sequel soon might be a little disappointed, though. Bionic Commando producer Ben Judd is currently tied up working on an unannounced game for Capcom.
Bionic Commando was released in May for the PS3 and XBox 360.
