Capcom To Focus On Developing Internally After Posting “Special Loss”


Capcom has revised their earning forecast for the last fiscal year, announcing that they will be posting a “special loss” of 7.2 billion yen (over $73 million). They are attributing this loss to a combination of factors, namely: failing to properly market their recent games, a “decline in quality due to excessive outsourcing”, and cancelling games that were outsourced to overseas companies. In the future, they will be developing more games in-house. Despite the loss, Capcom is reporting a net income of 2.9 billion yen (about $29.5 million) due to the respectable sales of Resident Evil 6 and DmC: Devil May Cry.
