Capcom has announced via its latest financial report that its growth has been significant. More specifically, net income has increased by 39.6% compared to the previous fiscal year, and operating income has increased by 24%. Further, much of this success can be attributed to immense game sales, like Resident Evil Village and Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin.
Then, as part of the PDF containing more intricate financial report information, Capcom revealed that they plan to release multiple major titles by March 31, 2023, less than a year from now. While a vague statement, it’s still worth acknowledging, as there aren’t any truly heavy hitters we are currently aware of in the near future other than Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. There are also modern console generation ports of several Resident Evil games on the way, though that’s relatively minor news. Pragmata and Exoprimal possess standard 2023 release windows, so those aren’t solidified for the timeframe either. Regardless, all we can do is wait and see what Capcom has up its sleeve for us.
Personally, I’m mostly yearning for a new Ace Attorney entry or ports of the games yet to be brought to modern platforms and something Mega Man-related. Unfortunately, I’m doubtful about either of those franchises receiving new releases this year or early next year, especially for Ace Attorney, which isn’t exactly a best-seller. Still, I can dream, at least.
