Capcom appears to be on the road to success, with news that the Japanese publisher and developer has had to revise its earnings forecast simply because its games have been selling so well.
Cheap services from Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin and Resident Evil: Village were cited as some of the main reasons for revising earnings forecasts.
“In our core digital content business, we have seen positive performances from titles such as Resident Evil Villagethe latest game in the series, as well Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruina role play in monster hunter Series.”
Monster Hunter Ascension has also continued to grow thanks to the release of the game on PC in January this year. Various other Capcom series also contributed, along with fourth-quarter discount sales.
“In addition to the January release of the PC version of Monster Hunter Ascensiona title originally released in March 2021, revenue increased due to the steady popularity of catalog titles – mainly earlier titles in large series – and the synergy of discount sales in the fourth quarter.
“Overall, this has led us to expect net sales to exceed our previous guidance. In addition, we expect operating income, ordinary income and net income attributable to owners of the parent company to exceed our plan.”
According to Capcom’s official sales data, Monster Hunter Rise is now officially the seventh best-selling game of all time (as of March 2021).
