Dragon’s Dogma 2, Along With Other Capcom Games, Surpass Revenue Expectations



Ahead of a fiscal 2024 earnings report, Capcom has adjusted their estimated earnings due to strong sales from its game catalog, specifically Dragon’s Dogma 2 and Street Fighter 6. Capcom has increased its net sales forecast by 8.9% resulting in a new estimate of 152,400 million yen ($979 million) for the fiscal year, showing an increase in overall profits and shareholder earnings. Games that contributed majorly to this success include Street Fighter 6, released in June 2023, and Dragon’s Dogma 2, launched in the last quarter.

Despite controversy surrounding its release, Dragon’s Dogma 2 sold over 2.5 million units in less than two weeks. In January, Street Fighter 6 crossed three million sales, a number believed to have grown in recent months. Other sales boosters were catalog titles consisting of popular past series. Other notable games launched in the past year include Exoprimal, the Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection, and the Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy.

With a fairly sparse release schedule in 2024, Capcom is pinning hopes on re-releases of the Monster Hunter Stories RPGs series in June and the new action strategy game, Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess. The biggest planned launch is Monster Hunter Wilds in 2025, which is expected to further increase Capcom’s profit given the popularity of the series. These anticipated launches signify Capcom’s intentions to achieve a more successful financial outcome in the fiscal year 2025.
