So how is Capcom's finantial situation exactly?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - So how is Capcom's finantial situation exactly?

Capcom had a lot of finantial problems around the end of the 7th gen, with some rumours even reporting the possibility of a buyout. After a couple of years of 8th gen, Capcom doesn't seem that much different. Outside of the milking of the Monster Hunter franchise (which is probably its main source of income right now), Capcom has not had any major success to change that situation. Even Street Fighter V was a very underperforming game. How exactly are now finantially speaking? Do they get profits or losses, and how important those profits and losses?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Did they do anything else other than MH, SFV and RE7 ? if the answer is no then I'm positive they are getting back on track

Mega Man Legacy, Phoenix Wright and that RE shooter game at least.



I just got a shot from their financial department! Looks ok to me!

They still have lot of their japanese nazi gold stocks!

I don`t think there was rumours of an actual buy out. I think it`s just that they never bothered renewing their buyout protection so it became a possibility. But yeah, can`t remember anything actually coming of it.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Probably not good, but with enough profitable IPs to stay afloat without strong issues.

Well the first two certainly sold decenly, the Umbrella thing game instead might have lost them a few milions but still they should close the financial year in positive given the release of MHXX



The resident evil remastered have both sold a million + confirmed by them



They're probably a lot better now days with MH flying and Sony funding SFV, a lot of the problems in gen 7 were due to the costs in development as a result of the jump to HD.
