Capcom has published its financial report for fiscal year 2022, which ended on March 31st. Sales and profit growth were both up for the fifth year in a row for the Japanese publisher.
The company’s revenue for fiscal year 2022 was $844.9 million, up 15.5% from the previous year. The operating profit increased by as much as 24% to $329.4 million.
Capcom raised its forecast at the end of April, owing to the success of its recent releases, but it still fell short. The publisher expected revenue of $860 million, up from $780 million previously, and operating profit forecasts of $330 million – a significant shortfall, as we can see.
The Japanese company had sold 32.6 million games (+2.5 million) as of March 31, 2022. The majority of sales were made on digital platforms, with Resident Evil Village and Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin once again leading the way.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin hаs sold 1.5 million copies аnd Resident Evil VIllаge hаs sold 6.1 million.
Cаpcom expects revenue of $920-922 million аnd net income of $369-370 million until Mаrch 31, 2023.
