Mark took up the role as COO in April 2008, after stints as both senior vice president and executive vice president.  Before that he worked at Midway, as executive VP of publishing.

According to MCV, he suffered a fatal heart attack in the early hours of 23rd February.

PS3 Attitude received the following statement from Capcom late last night;

“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 humour, 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.”

All of Team Attitude wish to extend our condolences to Mark’s family and friends.
