Capcom has lost an integral team member this morning.

Capcom announced today that Mark Beaumont, Capcom North America and Europe's chief operating officer, passed away earlier this morning.

Capcom released a statement about it earlier: "Our COO and dear friend, Mark Beaumont, passed away this morning. This sudden loss has left us with deep sadness. Our hearts go out to his family and loved ones. We will remember him for his humor, passion and commitment to Capcom and our industry. He was a great leader and visionary and his spirit will carry on in everything that we do. Please join us in memory of Mark."

The Nintendo World Report staff would like to express our condolences and we wish Mark's family and all his friends at Capcom the best during this sudden loss.


RIP Mr. Beaumont

Though you wouldn't expect this from a company executive. How old was he?

The reports i've seen say he was in his late 50s (but don't say the exact age).

I had never heard of him before, but sad to see someone die so youg.
