Capcom, like many other major publishers, has recently released its financial report for investors, which includes a wealth of information for the average layperson.
First and foremost, the public is likely interested in the sales figures for Capcom’s most recent major hit, the horror Resident Evil Village. As a result, the game sold 6.1 million copies by the end of March 2022 (reporting period). Another recent game, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, had a much more modest success: 1.5 million copies sold, but that’s still a good number.
According to the report, Capcom’s financial affairs are doing very well: revenue increased by 15.5%, and operating profit increased by nearly a quarter, to 24%. These are $844.9 million and $329.4 million in dollars, respectively.
One important factor is Capcom’s ability to increase net sales for the fifth consecutive year. The publisher sold 32.6 million copies of its various games during the fiscal year, which is 2.5 million more than the previous year.
