Capcom Financials: Street Fighter V Sold 1.4 Million, “Full-Scale Offensive” Planned for Later This Year
In their latest financial report for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016, Capcom revealed that Street Fighter V sold 1.4 million copies across PlayStation 4 and PC through retail and digital stores.
Although Street Fighter V “remained a perennial favorite and maintained steady sales mainly overseas,” the 1.4 million sold is short of the two million target Capcom set out prior to launch.
Looking at other Street Fighter titles, Street Fighter IV is sitting at 3.4 million lifetime, with Super Street Fighter IV at 1.9 million lifetime.
Elsewhere in their financial report, Capcom said they have a “full-scale offensive” planned for the second half of this fiscal year:
In the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017, the Company is scheduled to release the strategic titles of “Sengoku BASARA: Sanada Yukimura-den” (for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3), which showcases the life of Sanada Yukiura, and “Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps” (for PlayStation 4 and PC) of the “Resident Evil” series, which marked its 20th anniversary in March 2016, as a warm up to the full-scale offensive planned for the second half of the year. Additionally, the Company is also scheduled to launch “Ace Attorney 6” (for the Nintendo 3DS system) and “Monster Hunter Stories” (for the Nintendo 3DS system).
Capcom also plans on releasing Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 4 later this year on PS4 and Xbox One.
