Career Soft is a Japanese video game development studio founded in June 1996 by Team Career, a team within the Masaya Games, which was formed to develop Langrisser and Langrisser II. Career Soft continued to work with Masaya Games for the development of Langrisser III, Langrisser IV and Langrisser V, before they went on to develop the Growlanser series together with the publisher Atlus in 1999. In October 2001, Atlus acquired Career Soft and became the sole publisher of their games.[1] In 2004, after the release of Growlanser IV, the majority of Career Soft's staff was merged into the main development team of Atlus, where they have worked on the Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor series.

On September 5, 2013, as a legal entity, Career Soft was dissolved once Sega acquired Index Corporation and transferred all the target company's assets into Sega Dream Corporation.[2] On the 18 February 2014, the assets of Career Soft was later transferred to the video game development division of Sega Dream Corporation which was re-branded as Atlus.[3]
