Capcom Open Conference RE:2019 and the RE ENGINE Both Awarded First Prize at the CEDEC Awards!
– Capcom garners high recognition for its contribution to the technological advancement of the industry via technological prowess and knowledge sharing –

Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) was honored when its Capcom Open Conference RE:2019 operations team and its RE ENGINE development team were both awarded first prize in the Engineering category during the CEDEC Awards 2020, which were announced at CEDEC 2020 (held from September 2nd through 4th and organized by the Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association).

Capcom Open Conference RE:2019, whose operation team was awarded first prize, was a free conference that featured detailed presentations regarding the evolution and enhancement of Capcom’s RE ENGINE, as well as real-world examples of how it was utilized on the development of Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5. The conference attracted major attention, with the number of applications to attend more than doubling the venue capacity for the Tokyo session. The RE ENGINE is Capcom’s propriety game development engine, which provides the company with a flexible, efficient environment optimized for developing games. Not only does the RE ENGINE enable photoreal-quality, richly detailed graphics, but it also allows for reduced title development times and specification updates customizable to each title.

Capcom was awarded first prize due to contributing to the technological advancement of the industry through sharing knowledge at its self-organized conference, as well as to receiving high recognition for its advanced technological prowess used in developing its proprietary game development engine.

Capcom is committed to achieving further growth and maintaining its superior competitive advantage in the global game industry by continuing to carry out research on both fundamental and cutting-edge technologies.
