Capcom’s report for their 2018 financial year has revealed that the company is in fine health as profits hit an all time high for a second consecutive year. This is mainly due to strong performances from AAA console releases and strong digital sales. Here’s the rundown:
- Revenue: ¥100.03 billion / $904 million (up 5.8% year over year)
- Net Income: ¥12.55 billion / $113 million (up 14.8% year over year)
Monster Hunter: World sales remain at the 12 million milestone making it the best selling game in the series and in Capcom’s history. The Resident Evil 2 Remake for the PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One performed extremely well, exceed Capcom’s own expectations and was a key driver. Devil May Cry V also performed well thanks to the overseas market and a consistent demand.
Capcom also noted a slowdown in mobile games but it was offset by steady growth in the console and PC market. Capcom also intend on developing more games that will appeal to diverse customers and the western market. They also intend to downsize unprofitable divisions whilst growing profitable ones.
