Capcom Financials: Resident Evil 7 Moves 3.5 Million Copies, Misses Original Expectation
In their financial report for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2017, Capcom revealed that Resident Evil 7 has sold 3.5 million copies (physical and digital) on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. This is 500,000 units off their original expectation, but Capcom says it “gave an overall solid performance.”
While Dead Rising 4 for Xbox One/PC and Monster Hunter Stories for Nintendo 3DS “underperformed,” Monster Hunter Generations for 3DS “achieved solid sales overseas.” Additionally, Capcom says the Resident Evil re-releases “performed steadily thanks to a stable fanbase for the brand.”
Looking at the updated million sellers list, Resident Evil 6 for PS4 and Xbox One has sold one million copies since launch in March 2016. Additionally, Resident Evil 5 (PS3, Xbox 360), Resident Evil 6 (PS3, 360), Resident Evil Remastered, Resident Evil 0 Remastered, and Street Fighter V all sold 100,000 copies in the previous quarter (January 1 to March 31). Street Fighter V is now sitting at 1.6 million copies sold lifetime.
For the full fiscal year, Capcom net sales were more than ¥87 billion ($783 million USD), which is up 13.2% year-over-year.
Discussing their plans for the future, Capcom said they’ll “strengthen digital download sales and increase our pipeline of major title releases according to our medium-term strategic map.”
