Capcom aiming for more releases, smaller teams

Capcom has revealed plans for its growth strategy moving forward.

In its annual report, the publisher outlines big changes coming to the development cycle. It also makes clear that we’re to expect smaller teams working on more games in the future.

"Teams developing major titles will be limited to 100 members, with multiple sequel titles developed at the same time. Also, as it will be necessary to create a large-scale development structure for shortening the development process, we will strengthen in-house development staff recruitment.

"In addition, we will increase the number of titles released in a single year and expand earnings using a hybrid development model whereby the core portions of the project are developed in-house by Capcom and the process-work is outsourced to outside development companies."

Capcom added it will focus 20 per cent of development investment funds to new titles.
