Recently, we reported that Bandai Namco has increased the monthly earnings of its Japanese employees, and now Capcom will follow suit by increasing the base salary of its Japanese employees by 30%.
As reported by VGC, the move will take effect from fiscal year 2022 (ie now) and will also be equipped with a new bonus system that is more closely linked to the company’s business development. The move comes ahead of an expected fifth straight year of record earnings for the company and a ninth straight year of growing operating income, which Capcom will report in May as part of its fiscal 2021 results.
In conjunction with the pay increase, Capcom also reorganized its human resources department to improve the company’s training systems and expand its employee performance appraisal structure. It also enables an improved system to enable better communication between management and employees following the appointment of a new Chief HR Officer.
What does all this mean in terms of gaming, you ask? Well, the obvious theory is that we’ll likely continue to see support and growth for Capcom’s core businesses, including monster hunter, resident Eviland street fighter. In fact, Capcom recently announced Street Fighter 6, and its big expansion for Monster Hunter Rise, titled Sunbreak, is set to release on June 30th.
How about new MegaMan game, Capcom?
