Capcom wants to release games faster and reduce development times

Posted By | On 24th, May. 2012

Capcom’s CEO Kenzo Tsujimoto has revealed to investors during a financial briefing that they want to reduce development times and put out games within two and a half years.

“Speeding up development will probably raise the cost. But creating quality content will be vital to Capcom’s ability to survive by overcoming intense global competition. We will make substantial investments to develop this content,” Tsujimoto said.

“For example, we may have five titles for which we can launch sequels over the next two and a half years. In this case, we can even out the introduction dates in order to launch major titles on a regular basis.

He also revealed that they are on track to fulfill this goal. “In both cases, the release cycle is shorter than for the previous series title. For Resident Evil 6, we improved efficiency by using a new alignment of internal developers.

“For Lost Planet 3, we are using an alliance with an overseas development company with the goal of launching this title 2.5 years after the previous title in this series,” he revealed.

“So we have succeeded in greatly reducing the development time compared with prior titles. Overall, we believe that we are making steady progress in shortening development times by efficiently utilizing our own workforce and making effective use of external development companies.”
