Capcom is looking to improve the quality of its games by producing more titles in-house, it told investors last week.

The Japanese publisher intends to add 1000 developers over the next 10 years to make that goal a reality.

It currently employs some 1500 developers.

Capcom has outsourced some of its biggest franchises in recent years including Grin's Bionic Commando reboot and Slant Six Games' Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, neither of which was particularly well received by critics.

However, recent release Resident Evil 6 didn’t fare very well either, despite being produced in-house.

Upcoming titles Lost Planet 3 and Devil May Cry have been farmed out to Spark Unlimited and Ninja Theory respectively.

The new developers would expand its PC, console, and mobile teams, Capcom said.
