Capcom has announced a fifth consecutive year of “record-high profit”, driven in part by the continuing success of Resident Evil Village, as well as strong sales for the Monster Hunter games on Switch.
Ongoing sales of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne and Resident Evil VII: biohazard also helped buoy Capcom's numbers for its financial year ending 31st March 2022, with the Japanese company celebrating net sales of ¥110.1 billion (USD$846.3 million) - a rise of 15.5% compared to last year.
This sets a new company record for Capcom, with operating income growing by 24% to ¥42.9 billion (USD$329.5 million), which GamesIndustry.biz notes is the ninth year running that this particular metric has seen growth. Ordinary income also grew by 27.2% to ¥44.3 billion (USD$340.3 million).
As of October 2021, Resident Evil Village had sold 5 million units, which has since risen to a total of 6.1 million copies worldwide. Overall, Capcom has sold 36.2 million units of its games throughout fiscal year 2022 - a significant record high following the previous year's 30.1 million unit milestone.
Indeed, Resident Evil Village proved instrumental in achieving a record year for Capcom in 2021, and with the game set to receive DLC, no doubt sales will continue apace. Resident Evil Village is available for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC.
