Good numbers for Capcom
A success that initially surprises stakeholders: Last April, Capcom had to revise its forecasts upwards due to the excellent sales of its games.

In addition to the success of Resident Evil and Monster Hunter, the publisher has other games in the pipeline: Exoprimal, Pragmata, and the highly anticipated Street Fighter VI. Capcom and Resident Evil are investing not only in video games, but also in Netflix: from today, the series of the same name is available on the SVOD platform.
