Capcom is riding high off the release of Monster Hunter: World, and it is looking to continue that success with 2019’s Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5. With such a steady stream of high-profile releases, the Japanese publisher is planning to capitalize on that momentum by making annual releases of some of its core franchises.
In its annual report to shareholders, Capcom projected a 45.9% growth by 2022. To attain that goal, Capcom has outlined some strategies to pursue the needs to existing consumers, while also attracting new ones. Part of this strategy involves a more steady stream of releases year-to-year.
In the report, Capcom said it has “shortened the launch cycle” for its major franchises, allowing for “the launch of major multiple titles each fiscal year.” Resident Evil, Street Fighter, and Monster Hunter were some of the franchises namechecked in the report.
