Capcom is betting on the future

Written by David Stellmack

Will ramp up internal development

Kenzo Tsujimoto, the CEO at Capcom, is making a big bet on the future. Tsujimoto says that Capcom is pledging to hire at least 100 developers every year as it ramps up its internal software development teams.

In an open letter released on Capcom’s web site, the CEO says he wants, “…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.”

The news builds on Tsujimoto’s start of an initiative last year that will see Capcom bring development back in-house, instead of using outsourced developers to complete projects. He also says that part of this hiring ramp-up will see well defined targets established for these developers so that they can help Capcom grow stronger.

The news is interesting, to say the least. We will not argue with the fact that many of the recent releases from Capcom have not met with the success that the company wanted to see. It is a bet on the future and having better internal control of the products it develops. It remains to be seen if this is the right way to go, when so many of the other publishers are headed in other directions.
