Capcom CEO discusses 5-year plan; hiring 100 devs a year

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Nicholas Greene  

Capcom's CEO Kenji Tsujimoto today released a letter detailing his studio's current five-year outlook and his plans to help Capcom grow over this period. One of those plans involves building up the development workfroce, which Tsujimoto posits will require the organization to bring on "at least" one hundred new developers every year. 

"I want to build a development framework that can put the right people in the write places," he wrote. 

He further noted in the messages that some of Capcom's properties "have performed well, while others have been somewhat weak." Mobile sales, in particular, have lagged, while properties such as Monster Hunter 4 have been quite lucrative. At the end of the day, Tsujimoto has an optimistic outlook.

"I believe we have largely completed the framework needed for re-examining development operations and reinforcing market strategies. Our next objective is to provide as many people as possible a variety of products that take full advantage of Capcom's vast amount of content." 

Part of that re-examining involves strengthening marketing strategies for "downloadable content, mobile contents, online operations, and brand contents." 

My take on all this?  While it's great that Capcom's making an effort to improve the outlook of their development base, unless they're planning a new Megaman game, I'm simply not interested.
