According to a translation of Inafune’s blog:

Inafune declared he had no more “stairs” to climb within Capcom. “It would probably be good for me to sit gracefully in this seat and become a leading figure in the industry,” he wrote. “However, I cannot do this. Settling down means death for a creator. As long as you are a creator, you cannot settle down.”

Eurogamer had an update as to his replacement:

As of 1st November, Jun Takeuchi will take on the added responsibility of corporate officer as well as his existing deputy head of consumer games and R&D Division, and general manager of R&D production.
