Capcom reveals its financial earnings for the first quarter of fiscal year 2018.
Capcom revealed its Q1 fiscal year 2018 financial results for the period of April 1st to June 30th 2018. It revealed that while revenue was up by 46.5% percent, operating income had increased by 550.8% compared to the same period last year. Given titles like Monster Hunter World, which require constant support even after launch (not to mention the upcoming PC version), and upcoming releases like Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil 2, it kind of makes sense.
Speaking of the latter two games, Capcom has “high expectations” from both. Resident Evil 2 was noted for causing a “sensation” among attendees, while Devil May Cry 5 “also attracted strong interest”. Projected sales weren’t revealed, but these are definitely two of Capcom’s biggest releases for the near future. They’ll arrive before the end of Q4 of the fiscal year 2019 with Resident Evil 2 already having a release date of January 25th 2019.
Devil May Cry 5 hasn’t received a release date yet, but it’s expected to arrive before March 31st 2019. With an upcoming appearance at Gamescom, where it will be playable, perhaps Capcom will spill some more information on the same. Stay tuned, because Gamescom 2018 takes place from August 21st to 25th.
