Capcom has revealed that the company has officially recorded its all-time first-quarter revenue through a new press release. The press release states that this is a record high for the company. In addition, the press release shows that this is largely due to the success of Resident Evil Village and Monster Hunter Rise. [Thanks, Nibel!]
Capcom’s net sales are up 104.1% and operating income is up 120.4%, in part due to digital sales. As mentioned earlier, Monster Hunter Rise and Resident Evil Village are the main contributors to the overall success of Capcom’s sales in the first quarter. Resident Evil Village currently sits at 4.5 million units sold worldwide, and Monster Hunter Rise is officially Capcom’s best-selling single-platform title. A PC version of Monster Hunter Rise is scheduled for release sometime in early 2022.
The press release also reveals the difference between Q1 sales for 2020 and 2021. Net sales for Capcom in Q1 2021 is approximately 48.2 million yen. In 2020, however, first quarter revenue was only 23.7 million yen. In addition, the press release provides an overview of digital sales and its contribution to the company’s overall profit margin.
In addition to achieving its highest level of revenue ever in the first quarter, Capcom also achieved its highest level of profits of all time in the first quarter.
