Capcom Revises Earnings Forecast Thanks to Boost From Dragon’s Dogma 2 and Street Fighter 6 Sales

Today in a press release, Capcom announced it is revising its full-year consolidated earnings forecast for the fiscal year ending March 31st, 2024. The publisher has increased its net income from the previous year from ¥40 to 43.4 million with the “full-year dividend forecast is ¥70 per share” for shareholders. Capcom goes into it reasoning a bit revealing that the combined sales from Dragon’s Dogma 2 and Street Fighter 6 contributed to the revision.

“In our core Digital Contents business, in addition to Street Fighter 6, the latest title in the Street Fighter series, being met with broad acclaim globally, Dragons Dogma 2 was released in the fourth quarter and has performed favourably. Further, sales grew for catalogue titles consisting primarily of past titles from major series due to their steady popularity,” Capcom said in a statement in a press release this morning.

“Altogether, this has led us to expect earnings for this business to exceed our plan. As a result, we expect net sales, operating income, ordinary income, and net income attributable to owners of the parent to all outperform our previously announced forecast.”

While Capcom noted Dragon’s Dogma 2‘s “favourable” sales in its fourth fiscal quarter, the publisher didn’t reveal an updated figure on how much the game has sold now with it now being over a month since the game’s launch. We do however have an idea how the game is performing for Capcom having sold more than 2.5 million copies in its first 11 days on sale pushing the total sales of the series to over 10 million units cumulatively.

“Once you get over the initial hurdle and difficulty curve, Dragon’s Dogma 2 comes out swinging. It’s clear why the first entry was a cult hit. Over a decade later, though, with the technology finally capable of providing the horsepower to deliver Itsuno’s vision, stepping into the world of Dragon’s Dogma 2 leaves a lasting impression far more positive than I expected,” Bobby said in our Dragon’s Dogma 2 review.

“Some might not agree that the sequel does anything different, but the formula is there, and it works well. I have some issues with the AI and the Pawns, but more than anything, the framerate is the biggest offence as it struggles to be consistent. The gameplay is a ton of fun, though, and it is satisfying to deliver blow after blow to an assortment of challenging enemies.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 launched this year on March 22nd and is currently available on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S.
