Capcom has reported its financial results, with interesting data revealing sales of major releases and plans for the current fiscal year, ending March 31, 2021. For example, we know that Resident Evil 3 Remake
Perhaps the most interesting fact is the intention of launch several big games -AAA- over the next few monthswith which They hope to sell 28 million copies, mostly by promoting digital sales with more offers. and flexible prices, new games and offers in titles of the last years. In comparison, the fiscal year ended March 2018 had been launched Monster Hunter: World and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite
Analyst Daniel Ahmad summarizes these data and that he expects to sell 10 million of this year's news, which is more than last year -with Iceborne– but less than the launch year of Monster hunter world, which initially ruled out a sequel to World. These new features are 13 SKU -each SKU is a launch on a platf orm, so that Resident Evil 3 Remake
"In other words, don't expect Capcom to release a bunch of collections or games this year," says Ahmad, who expect at least another great title in the year next to the one already released Resident Evil 3. For example, a game that reaches PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X and PC already represents 5 SKUs of those 10 new ones planned.
The 10m units for new software is higher than the amount of new software sold in the prior FY (MHW: Iceborne) but lower than the year when MHW launched.
Indicates we can probably rule out to MHW sequel.
Going back to new games.
Capcom plans to launch 13 new SKU's in FY20 / 21. This is compared to 35 in FY19 / 20 and 61 in FY18 / 19.
1 SKU = a release on one platform.
So for example, RE3 on PS4, XB1 and PC = 3 SKU's.
Another strategy talks about expanding licenses beyond games. Capcom already did it with resident Evil and I will soon with Monster hunter, adapted to film. Other initiatives such as concerts, collaborations with cafes, mobile games and other pachinkos-type businesses are also cited.
