Graduates joining Capcom in the 2025/2026 financial year will be seeing salary increases of nearly 30%, raising the figure from ¥235,000 per month to ¥300,000 per month. In addition, all existing employees within Capcom will be seeing their salaries increased by 5% within the next financial year for 2024/2025. Employees will also receive an additional bonus payment which Capcom describe as an investment in their people. The figure of this special payment has not been disclosed.

These increases are part of a wider investment in staff across Capcom. Since 2022, the company has restructured its human resources department and introduced additional compensation for employees. A bonus system based on company performance had previously been introduced, and employees are also being offered stock options. The latest salary increases are also part of a wider 30% increase since 2022. It’s also a reflection of Capcom’s wider financial successes in recent years, with net sales up 33% as of their most recent financial report.

This announcement marks a rare bit of good news in an industry rocked by layoffs at companies including Sega and Activision Blizzard.

The Capcom salary increases will come into effect during financial year 2024/2025.
