While the pandemic was in full swing last year, it didn’t stop CAPCOM. The fiscal year of 2020 was kind for the company as they had a rise in net sales by 16.8% while operating income was up 51.6%. The uptick in profits for the company were most derived through digital sales.
Resident Evil 3 and the recently released Monster Hunter Rise helped boost the company to record sales profits. They are expecting the 2022 fiscal year to be another gain of 5% in sales income. There is another 25% growth in the operating income department as well.
Monster Hunter Rise was released during the last week of the 2020 fiscal year. Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition “performed well” while older releases Monster Hunter World: Iceborn and Resident Evil 2 put up big sales numbers. Rise sold 4 million units the first week.
With the recent release of Resident Evil: Village and upcoming titles like Ghosts N Goblins Resurrection, Monster Hunter: Rise (PC) and potentially Street Fighter VI, Capcom should have nothing to worry about for the near future. The company developed a formula that clearly works for them, and fans have been happy with most of their releases thus far.
