Capcom To Increase Production Output

Capcom's looking to put out more big games like Resident Evil and Street Fighter per year. At the moment, Capcom only produces two on an annual basis, they hope to ramp it up to three or four instead.

"Developing a large scale title requires a staff of over 100. To increase output, Capcom plans on making use of outsourcing, centred primarily on North American and European studios.

"Through the use of external resources, Capcom believes it can reduce development times from four years to between two and three years," according to a report from Nikkei.

Hopefully Capcom's able to output good quality games. They currently have Marvel VS Capcom 3 in the works and they just announced yet another crossover game, Street Fighter VS Tekken, which should be out in maybe two years.
