Capcom has revealed plans to increase internal development staff by 66 per cent over the next ten years.
The firm currently employees 1,500 on its development team, and revealed in a financial report Q&A that it intends to bring on an additional 1,000 staff members by 2023.
"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,” a Capcom rep stated.
Capcom has set the plan in motion in an effort to shift away from outsourcing operations for its titles.
"The purpose of increasing our game developer team is to create a larger percentage of our games internally. Therefore, we believe that there will be no significant change in total development expenditures mainly because we will be shifting outsourced operations to our own workforce."
