‘Resident Evil’ Producer Sees More Management-Creator Disputes

The producer behind the zombie-fighting “Resident Evil” games who left Capcom Co. after clashing with management said more developers are likely to face similar disputes as social games upend the industry.

“In this industry, it’s often the creators who have the eye for potential hits but they’re not the ones deciding what gets published,” Keiji Inafune, who left as head of research and development of Capcom in November, said in an interview last week in Tokyo. “We’ll see many more clashes as creator-management divides widen.”
