Per Capcom’s fiscal press release, 2019 was one of the best quarters in the company’s history.
- Net operating income 18,448 million yen, an increase of 37.1% YoY.
- Net income attributable to the parent was 13,065 million yen, and increase of 42.3% YoY.
This quarter, flagship title Monster Hunter World: Iceborne provided a solid performance, while elsewhere in the core Digital Contents business sales of major catalog releases from past years, such as Monster Hunter: World, Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5, also showed healthy sales growth. As a result of high-margin digital sales growth improving profitability, Capcom achieved the highest profit at all levels for the end of a third quarter in company history.
You can find the full breakdown of Capcom’s business via the press release above including their arcade operations.
Without a doubt Capcom has been revitalized. Monster Hunter World and Resident Evil 2 Remake were tremendous successes, and Devil May Cry 5 was also applauded by both fans and critics alike. With Resident Evil 3 Remake on the way and Resident Evil 8 in the works, we don’t see their success slowing down any time soon. It’s great to see Capcom back at the top!
