Capcom's yearly earnings: Dead Rising 4 bombs, Resident Evil saves the day


Top titles fail to reach projected numbers

Dead Rising 4 failed to make even half of what Capcom was hoping for. Having projected two million sales in the 2016 fiscal year, the lumbering husk of a once-great series didn't reach one million. Poor performance of the Xbox One outside the U.S. and middling reception are possible causes. Monster Hunter Stories also "underperformed."

Resident Evil 7 (3.5 million sold) and Monster Hunter XX (1.7 million) also failed to attain their projected numbers (four million and two million, respectively), but they performed well enough to satisfy Capcom, perhaps due to the lower budgets they required. Re-releases of older Resident Evil games "performed steadily thanks to a stable fanbase," with Resident Evil 6 surpassing one million on the year.

Sales and Profit Up in Consolidated Results for Fiscal Year Ended March 31, 2017 [Capcom]
