Capcom wants to make more of its games in-house to improve the quality of its future releases, and intends to hire 1,000 developers over the next 10 years to support that goal. Capcom told investors last week that it will improve the quality of its games by creating a larger percentage of its projects internally. In order to accomplish that goal, it will add another 1,000 workers to its current team of 2,500 developers.
Capcom has outsourced a considerable portion of its games in
recent years, allowing Western developers to handle some of its biggest
franchises. It partnered with Spark Unlimited on Lost Planet 3, and brought in Ninja Theory to handle its Devil May Cry reboot.
