Just recently Capcom revealed its financial results of the first quarter of 2018, that covers the period from the starting of April to the end of June. Now turns out the results have been very positive and what these results seem to suggest, is that the company has high expectations from its upcoming titles, Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil 2 Remake.
In the Q1 fiscal year 2018 financial results of Capcom, there has been a revenue increase of 46.5%, while the operating income has increased by 555.8 percent when compared to the last year’s result. Now, why is that so? Well titles like Monster Hunter World that requires consistent support, updates, have acted as a form of growth for the studio.
Now because of the fact that there is a lot of excitement among fans for the upcoming, Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil 2 Remake, this positive growth does seem to make sense.
Talking about these upcoming two games, Capcom has shared that they have a lot of high expectations from them. The company said that when these game made their appearance at E3 2018, they both had a sensational feedback and that is why Capcom is very optimistic.
Capcom in its financial report said:
“In such an environment, the Company holds high expectations for the two major titles (Resident Evil 2 Remake & Devil May Cry 5) it will release next year, in Q4 of the current fiscal year.”
Having said that it is quite an assurance for the fans that the company, not only has a positive financial result but it is very much positive about its future titles.
Keeping all that into context, you may know that Gamescom 2018 is scheduled to take place from August 21 to 25 and Capcom will not be leaving behind, two of its biggest titles. Both Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil Remake will be featured at Gamescom 2018.
