Despite what recently can only be described as less than stellar performers, Capcom CEO Kenzo Tsujimoto says that the company will not back away from the development of new IP. New IP, despite some recent setbacks, will remain a key and important part of the Capcom strategy going forward.
Capcom will also be looking for ways to speed up development, but Tsujimoto expects that in order to speed up development it is going to cost money. Capcom will have to be focused on the production quality, however, in order to survive the tremendous onslaught from rival publishers. Only by creating quality content will Capcom be able to compete.
Capcom is intending to add 1,000 employees over the next decade in order to achieve its goal of becoming the world’s number one provider of digital content. In addition, the company confirmed its release schedule for the next 12 months, which will include Resident Evil 6, DmC Devil may Cry, and Dragon’s Dogma. The company did not comment if it had anything in the pipeline beyond those titles for the next 12 months.
