During the presentation of its latest financial results, Capcom has announced that it is planning to release “multiple major new titles” during the current fiscal year, which will end on March 31, 2021.
The company aims to reach record sales of 28 million units by that date, thanks also to the use of a digital promotion strategy that will encourage the use of flexible prices. This will be applied to both new and past titles.
According to some comparisons, in the fiscal year ended March 2018, when the company had distributed games like Monster Hunter: World and Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite, Capcom had recorded 24.4 million copies sold in total. Instead, in the fiscal year ended in March 2019, thanks to the release of games such as Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry V, 25.3 million units were sold. Finally, in the last fiscal year, which saw the debut of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, the total number of units sold stood at 25.5 million overall.
The company also announced that the Resident Evil 3 Remake placed 2.5 million units, while total sales of Monster Hunter: World exceeded 15.5 million units.
In addition, as per various rumors that have been circulating for months on the web, Resident Evil 8 will be one of the next video games in the launch titles: details on the game have in fact been leaked by the famous insider who is specialized in horror games, known as Dusk Golem.
Before concluding, we remind you that Resident Evil 8 has not been announced nor much less formalized by Capcom itself. So, we just have to wait to find out the next projects that Capcom has in store for the future.
