Capcom is reporting an impressive increase in operating income during the first half of fiscal 2013, much of which can be attributed to Resident Evil 6 and Dragon’s Dogma.
The company revealed that they’ve brought in an operating income of 6.5 billion yen ($81.6 million) over the course of the first six months of fiscal 2013. This marks an impressive 134.2% increase from last year. According to Capcom, “sales and income for this 6 months period broke the record at all levels for the first half.”
It’s important to note that the company is including the 3.7 million copies of Resident Evil 6 that were shipped to retailers just before the end of the first half of fiscal 2013, which ended on September 30th.
So, in the end, it looks like there’s an incredibly good chance Resident Evil 7 will be just as action-heavy if not more so than RE6. And don’t forget, Capcom has already confirmed that we’ll be getting a sequel to Dragon’s Dogma.
