2019 – A success for Capcom

It looks like Capcom really struck it out of the park in 2019, riding a wave of well-received releases to achieve 10 million physical unit sales.

First reported by Twitter user Benji-Sales, the figures show that the publisher achieved great success on the Playstation 4, with transactions on the platform making up 65% of the total physical sales enjoyed by the company.

With titles like the Resident Evil 2 Remake, Devil May Cry V and Monster Hunter: World received so positively by gamers and critics alike, Capcom has also assured fans that they would invest far more time into the popular series in the next few years.

The Nintendo Switch games offered by the company also made up for just under 20% of the overall total of physical sold in 2019, despite none of the big three titles releasing on the console.

With the developer now intent on not only improving these figures next year, but also on creating more Esports opportunities, it looks like the sky’s the limit for the company in 2020.

Personally, I’m just hoping we see a remake of the less appreciated Resident Evil: Outbreak titles make it’s way into stores at some point in the near future!
