Resident Evil 3 boosts Capcom revenue
2020 was a good year for Capcom, who reported 20% higher revenues than projected thanks to solid growth in its digital content business.
Resident Evil 3 Remake and Monster Hunter World: Iceborne have done most of the heavy lifting, even though Resident Evil 3 Remake has not quite matched the astounding success of Resident Evil 2 Remake. Capcoms amusement equipment division has also performed better than expected.
Pre-order profits: “Additionally, orders for Monster Hunter Rise, a major new title scheduled for release in March of this year, are off to a promising start,” Capcom told investors. “Altogether, this has led us to expect this business to outperform our plan.”
Still going strong: Resident Evil 3 Remake sold 2.7 million copies in its first three months on sale, 55% less than Resident Evil 2 Remake's 4.2 million sales in its two first months, which is hardly surprising considering Resident Evil 2's legendary status.
