This isn’t the first time that Capcom has increased the basic wage of its employees, having done so in April 2022 with a 30% increase in the average base salary. Speaking at the time, it said the decision was “to address the issues facing our society while aiming to improve its corporate value and establishing a relationship of trust with employees and stakeholders.”
