Kazuhiro Tsuchiya, the producer of the Mega Man series and recently Street Fighter 6, has seemingly left Capcom after 30 years of service. As noticed by Rockman Corner, he changed his Twitter bio, which now says he "graduated from Capcom" (via Google Translate) and lists Mega Man and Street Fighter as his past projects. Before, it said he was in charge of the Mega Man/Street Fighter series.
As noted by Game World Observer, Tsuchiya joined Capcom in 1992, working on Mega Man 7 and Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo. He then became the director of Haunting Ground and producer of Asura’s Wrath.
The news comes just days before Street Fighter 6 release on June 2. Tsuchiya hasn't disclosed his career plans yet.
