Capcom to Hire 1000 New Staff Members by 2023

Also wants to hit 6 million units sold for Resident Evil 6 (seriously).

Posted By | On 06th, Nov. 2012


Capcom has been riding high on the success of Resident Evil 6, despite the game’s awful critical reception. The developer stated it’s desire to take on 1000 new staff members by 2023 in a recent investor’s Q&A.

“Regarding our priorities, we will continue to allocate people to content development in the home video game sector while recruiting and training more people to create games in our mobile contents and PC online game sectors.”

“Our goal is to increase the number of developers by 1,000 over the next 10 years. We want to further improve the quality of our games by maintaining an internal game development team.”

They also went on to state that they’re confident that Resident Evil 6 will hit its sales target of, no joke, 6 million units for the title.

Regardless of how one feels about RE6, it’s good to see a developer talking about expanding in troubled times such as these where major publishers like THQ are on the verge of bankruptcy.
