Capcom hiring '100 software developers' every year for at least five years


In a continuation of Capcom's blame "insufficient coordination" overseas cover story for financial issues, CEO Kenzo Tsujimoto has given a grand overview of the company's strategy to increase internal development. Tsujimoto had mentioned in late 2012 he planned to hire 1,000 people over ten years.

"I want to build a development framework that can put the right people in the right places. This process will reflect an understanding of what consumers want and what types of products have become hits," said Tsujimoto. "From now on, I plan to hire at least 100 software developers every year to give us an even more powerful development workforce. Furthermore, I want to establish clear targets for these developers so they can help make Capcom even stronger."

Over the year, Capcom will integrate global operation and sales. It's also focusing on downloadable content, mobile, online and "brand contents." This is all part of a "comprehensive review" of the company's software development operations.
