Capcom wants a piece of shooter, strategy and eSports markets

Increased diversity appears to be the name of the game from Capcom, which has detailed how it intends to aim for the crown of top global publisher.

Videogamer reports that the company has vowed to bolster its development capabilities with investment and hires, and to strike out into genres it is not typically accustomed to in an effort to achieve this.

"Going forward, as we aim to become the world's number one game developer, we feel that while it is of course necessary to advance and expand upon existing content, it is also necessary to take on new challenges," head of consumer games development Yoichi Egawa said.

"We cannot ignore genres such as shooting and strategy games with massive numbers of players when considering Consumer, Online and eSports market growth potential. We will make use of our strengths and keep a close watch on market trends while moving forward with the kind of game creation only possible at Capcom.

"The Chairman issued a manifesto, which reemphasized that we will not compromise on the products we release to market; an insistence on quality and the development of the world's number one games. He demands we reflect on whether we are maintaining a balance between meeting our ship-dates and craftsmanship."
