Matt Dahlgren, Capcom's senior product manager, just announced he's leaving the company after a decade --

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.

The community outreach on the fighting side was amazing back then.

Matt Dahlgren always seemed to give 100% of his effort running the Capcom Pro Tour.

He also apparently helped start Melee's and Smash in general competitive tournaments.

If his absence led to MvCI's sorry marketing campaign, Mr. Dahlgren will be missed.

God speed.

Gonna go out a limb and guess he wasn't in charge of the MvC:I marketing.

Good luck to him w/ his next job.

I actually did interviews and talked with him a couple of times during the later SF4 and pre-SFV hype cycle of stuff. He really sold the CPT and other things and was always super on point when talking to him. Sucks to see him move on from this, but I hope his skills go on to a better company honestly.

Capcom USA is a great crew. He'll be missed but will undoubtedly succeed in his next endeavor.

Is this a meme to upset Jawmuncher? I don't understand how 1 out of 3 mainline games being bad makes it a bad franchise.

if anything is a meme is Munch's obcession with a mediocre clone of another franchise, the bizarre part being, both franchises are from the same Publisher.

Dino Crisis is like those random ass shit clones of popular games we had all the time in the 90s, but its from Capcom so some people pretend it matters.

Its like if BIO Freaks was published...by...Midwa- wait >_>
