Capcom Will Hire 100 Employees Every Year for 5 Years

Jason Clement

In a recent letter discussing the company's 5-year outlook, Capcom CEO Kenzo Tsujimoto outlined a number of goals, including strengthening marketing strategies for downloadable content, mobile contents, online operations, and brand contents. Tsujimoto also mentioned that he'd like the company "to provide to as many people as possible a variety of products that take full advantage of Capcom's vast amount of content."


One of the most interesting things he mentions in the letter, though, is that Capcom is planning to hire at least 100 new developers a year in order to give them an even stronger workforce. No mention was made as to how those new hires would be allocated; would they form entirely new development studios or be added to existing teams to help? We won't know for sure until later, it looks like.


In the meantime, Tsujimoto mentioned that Monster Hunter 4 and pachislo machines have been strong performers for the company in the current fiscal year, but the mobile contents business has not met expectations. One has to wonder how much longer they will continue to pursue mobile development if it isn't working to their benefit.
