Capcom is planning to double its output for fiscal yr 2023 with 45 SKUs in comparison with final yr’s 24. In its monetary report for 2021/2022, the corporate tasks 37 million models can be offered in FY2023, 10 million from new titles, and 27 million from its earlier catalog (which incorporates remasters and ports). Regardless of doubling the variety of new titles, Capcom’s numbers are barely conservative, because it offered 32.6 million models final yr.
Capcom is releasing twice the variety of SKUs in 2023 than in 2022
Thus far, we solely know a number of of the key titles Capcom is counting towards its FY2023 projections (by way of ResetEra).
- Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak
- Monster Hunter Rise
- Monster Hunter World: Iceborne
- Resident Evil 2 (Subsequent-gen Port)
- Resident Evil 3 (Subsequent-gen Port)
- Resident Evil 7 biohazard (Subsequent-gen Port)
- Resident Evil Village (Presumably DLC?)
We additionally know that Capcom Preventing Assortment and Capcom 2nd Arcade Stadium can be launched within the coming months.
That leaves lots of SKUs unaccounted for, which supplies us lots of room for supposition. Pragmata and Exoprimal are each slated for 2023, however they could be counted right here in the event that they launch in earlier than October of subsequent yr. Avenue Fighter 6 absolutely gained’t come out this yr. So, what are all these thriller video games?
Rumors have abounded concerning the Resident Evil sequence, and I’d be shocked if we didn’t get a brand new sport this yr (except for RE:Verse). It most likely gained’t be a major sequence title, but it surely could possibly be Resident Evil 4 remake or a part of the Revelations subseries. Who is aware of, we’d even see Capcom do one thing with Outbreak.
Nonetheless, Capcom is bizarre with its IPs, so who is aware of what we’ll see. Perhaps Mega Man Legends will make a triumphant return. I’ve bought a sense there can be some very thrilling bulletins this summer season.
In different information, Gotham Knight gained’t have microtransactions, and the Sony and Bungie deal will shut by the tip of the yr.
