Capcom’s Profits Have Dropped Since Last Year


Results for the first half of Capcom’s fiscal year have recently been reported, and the numbers are down quite a bit since last year. Within this time period the company managed to rake in a whopping $239.6 million in revenue. Unfortunately, no matter how big that number seems, it is actually down 51.3% compared to 2013. Their profits were also down 39.9% at $26.8 million.

Capcom has taken this information from a sixth-month period lasting from April 1st to September 30th. The company explained that during this time there were no major titles released, unlike last year with Monster Hunter 4. Therefore, these profits were mostly based off of existing products. Highlights included: Ultra Street Fighter IV, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, and Dead Rising 3.

Capcom didn’t have the only drop in results, though. Their business unit, Digital Contents, had a 64.1% drop in total revenue and a 60% drop in operating income from last year. On top of that, all other Capcom businesses have shown a yearly decrease in profits and revenue. Are there any of you that feel Capcom may have run its course? Let us know in our comments section!
