Game Bits: Capcom Wants To Move To The PC As Its Main Platform, Paragon Is Now Part of StreamElements

Capcom Sees PC As King Now

Capcom plans to make PC its main software platform.
Capcom president and COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto told Bloomberg reporter Takashi Mochizuki that the company wants to eventually make the PC its primary platform, according to a Japanese-language Nikkei report.
The publisher also wants PC game sales to equal those of home consoles within two years.
A Nintendo Switch exclusive, Monster Hunter Rise, will be coming to PCs in January of next year.
While Capcom’s PC releases have historically trailed their console counterparts, the company has increasingly supported simultaneous releases in recent years for games like Resident Evil Village, Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition, and Devil May Cry 5.

StreamElements Has Purchased Paragon

Paragon, a gaming-focused YouTube talent network, has been acquired by StreamElements.
Following last week’s announcement that the streaming tools company had closed a $100 million investment round, the company announced the purchase today.
In addition to expanding our community support, one of our goals is to grow our footprint in the video-on-demand space, said StreamElements CEO Gil Hirsch.
Paragon’s integration into StreamElements allows us to directly assist popular YouTube creators to improve their offerings and grow their audiences. We also do not take a cut from their ad revenue, which aligns with our mission of being a creator-first company.”
With 1 billion views across its network this year, Paragon features content creators like SypherPK, xNestorio, and Kiingtong.
The Paragon influencer lineup will join StreamElements’ YouTube creator program. Non-Paragon creators will be able to apply for that program “in the coming months.”
