Capcom hires two members of fighting community

Capcom has hired Neidel "Haunts" Crisan, founder of competitive fighting hub iPlayWinner, and Peter "Combofiend" Rosas, a prominent competitor in the fighting scene, Shoryuken reports.

The announcement was made during the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary grand finals, which took place in Burlingame, Calif., on Dec. 8. No specifics were given about what position both men will be taking, although early speculation from fans suggests that one or both could take over for former Capcom employee Seth Killian.

Killian, fighting expert, EVO Championship Series co-founder and former community manager left Capcom USA in June of this year to join Sony Santa Monica Studios. He is currently the lead designer on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
