Kirk Black, the Vice President of Product Development for Capcom, posted the following information on his Facebook account today. 

"Recently I joined Capcom as VP of Product Development with the charter to lead the creation of their eSport platform. 

I'm creating and leading multiple teams including a server backend team based in Los Angeles and multiple game development teams based in Vancouver and Japan developing established Capcom IPs such as Street Fighter as well as creating new, original Capcom IP. 

I'm currently focused on hiring Ruby on Rails engineers (junior, mid and senior level positions) and Dev Ops to join my server backend Platform engineering team in Los Angeles. 

Additionally I'm looking for a Server Game Engineer and a Unity Game Engineer for one of my original game content development teams in Vancouver. 

If you or anyone you know is interested, please contact me"

Recently, it was announced that Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite wouldn't be part of this year's EVO 2018 tournament. With a new esports scene, Capcom could attempt to develop a game solely focused on esports. As we've seen with Umbrella Corps Capcom is interested in having an established footing within esports.
