Capcom Q1 Financial Report – Net Profit Falls by 37%

Capcom has recently announced its Q1 financial report for the three month period that terminated on June 30, 2013. According to the report presented, the net profit of the company has fallen down by 37% i.e. £5.55 year-on-year.

If we compare it to the last year, cash rendered from game sales was £125 million which is now £117. As for the net profit last year, it was £8.85.

But the interesting thing is that regardless of all these things, the company’s major games have met the expectations. However, the games were not sold at a premium price so the revenues generated are not as good as the sales themselves.

According to Capcom, Resident Evil: Revelations managed to achieve the projected units’ sales whereas Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen did exceedingly well in digital distribution.

Capcom has sold about 2.5 million games during this quarter i.e. 91 days. And a brief breakdown of all the platform with their sales is given below:

  • Playstation 3 = 1,300,000
  • Xbox 360 = 650,000
  • Nintendo 3DS = 200,000
  • Wii U = 160,000
  • PC & Other Platforms = 140,000
  • Playstation Vita = 50,000

As of 2013, the biggest game by Capcom is believed to be Dead Rising 3 which is being developed exclusively for the upcoming Xbox One.

Capcom has also announced a reboot of Strider which is slated for a 2014 release on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Ultra Street Fighter IV was also announced at EVO Championship 2K13 which will incur 5 new characters to the roster along with new stages, game modes and other exciting features.
