Capcom taking a hit on finances

Loads of companies are sharing their sales figures at the moment. I told you yesterday that Nintendo lost $97 million in their last quarter, which is just downright disheartening. It seems like Capcom also had a pretty rough period, even though their operating income actually saw an increase.

It’s worth keeping in mind that the drop in sales and net income is kind of expected because Capcom didn’t actually release any major titles in the last quarter. The numbers are as follows (via Gamesindustry):

Sales for the first quarter of FY2015 were down 7.8 billion Yen to 9.6 billion Yen, year-on-year. Net income dropped 63 million Yen to 765 million Yen.

On the positive side, their operating income actually saw an increase, but not quite enough to match the large loss from their sales and net income.

Operating income, however, rose sharply to 1.27 billion Yen from 723 million for the same quarter last year.

I’m surprised the numbers don’t show a growth actually, what with all the DLC and extras that Cashcom tend to offer with their games. Regardless,  they do have some stuff in the pipeline which may swing things in their favour. I’ve yet to play a Monster Hunter game, but I know they are incredibly popular, and number 4 will be landing in Japan in November.

What do you think? Sign of a downward spiral or a completely normal quarterly loss?

    Who knows….capcom reported they dont have much in the bank…honestly…I’ve lost faith in them. I loved them…but they butchered ally beloved series with Breath of Fire 6 being the last straw

      It’s been a while since I called them Capcom, these days I just shrug my shoulders and go “Meh.. CrapCom”

      I used to love Breath of Fire 3. That game was such a joy to play. (Happy memories)

    Bring back Megaman,Final Fight and Ghosts and Goblins. Cheap to make and cheap to sell, but people will buy it.

  • Rince&pop

    Capcom haven’t released any major titles in the last ten quarters :P

    Well when you start making crap games then you cannot be overly surprised; and on disc DLC issues; delays to games; etc. It all starts to add up and hence people move on.

    I do want Ultra SF though.
