Capcom COO Mark Beaumont Dies Suddenly

Beaumont joined Capcom in 2005 and was the company's executive vice president, officer and Head of North America, South America and Europe consumer software publishing. This morning, Capcom released the following statement:

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.

Kotaku cites an MCV report that says Beaumont died after suffering a heart attack but reports that Capcom refused to comment further than the already released statement.

Beaumont was in his late fifties.
