Back in March, Ono san was rushed to the hospital, due to “overworking” himslef, or at least that what Capcom told us. Few months later, Ono san detailed his account on what happened on that day. Today we bring you more shpcking reveals from the the famous, and loved, EX-Street Fighter producer who revealed, to Eurogamer, more about the conditions and working environment at Capcom:
Ono san: ”Capcom doesn’t allow a trade union or any sort of worker movement you see,”…”So if I complain I will probably get sacked. You have to say it for me, OK? I want you to write: ‘Capcom overworks Ono’. That’s your headline.
After I passed out, I was thinking in the hospital: there are so many people at Capcom that, over the years, have disappeared at one time or another. Suddenly, in that bed I understood what happened to them… The day after a game is finished and goes off to manufacture there are 10 empty desks, their previous occupants never to be seen again.”
To make things worse, an anonymous Capcom Japan employee posted the below information about the work conditions inside the company. (Click to enlarge)
If the above account is true, then Capcom is really worse than their fictional Umbrella Corporation (from the resident evil series) and need to be penalized, or worse, for treating employees in such ways. Some fans are already calling to boycott Capcom games.
What d you folks think ? Do you believe the second account from the anonymous employee ? And if so what needs to happen to Capcom for treating people in such manners ?
