Capcom Paying Out More Money To Shareholders Thanks To Dragon’s Dogma 2 Success

Dragon’s Dogma 2 has been a resounding success for Capcom, so much so that the Resident Evil publisher is paying more money to its shareholders.

In case you missed it, the latest entry in the fantasy-RPG series sold 2.5 million copies in 11 days across PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X/S, bringing the franchise’s total sales to 10 million. For context, the original Dragon’s Dogma, which released in 2012 on PS3 and Xbox 360, sold 1.05 million copies in one month.

Speaking in a statement today, Capcom has revised its full-year earnings forecast, and named Street Fighter 6 and Dragon’s Dogma 2 as reasons for the decision, describing that the latter has “performed favourably,” while its back catalog also saw growth.

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, Dragon’s Dogma 2 was released in the fourth quarter and has performed favorably. Further, sales grew for catalog titles consisting primarily of past titles from major series due to their steady popularity. 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.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 was released on March 22, 2024 and you can read our full review here.
