Capcom has unveiled a 5 year plan to put the game publisher back on track, one part of it hiring at least 100 new developers each year to bolster their forces. In a message to Capcom investors, Kenji Tsujimoto disclosed his plan to hire more talent:

" From now on, I plan to hire at least 100 software developers every year to give us an even more powerful development workforce " said Tsujimoto. "Furthermore, I want to establish clear targets for these developers so they can help make Capcom even stronger."

Tsujimoto also addressed the weak points in Capcom's foundation, most notably it's mobile content, global market share and online revenue. A separate message from Haruhiro Tsujimoto, Capcom's COO, announced the 30 billion yen goal for online sales by March 2015, the end of the fiscal year.

Last year, the rise in production costs were discussed by Capcom's engine specialist Masuru Ijuin, quoted as saying next-gen games are "eight to ten times" more work, thus the troubling fiscal report for 2013.
