Street Fighter V and Dead Rising 4 Still Struggling for Sales

Street Fighter

Good and bad news for the Japanese publisher.

Capcom shared its financial results for the past three months, and despite an overall net revenue rise of 7% from the same time in last year, both Street Fighter V and Dead Rising 4 continue to perform poorly.

Capcom now lists Street Fighter V at 1.7 million units shipped, which has only risen from 1.6 million since May, and by just 300,000 units since the same month in 2016. The game is still below Capcom’s original expectation of 2 million units shipped by the end of 2016. Meanwhile, Dead Rising 4 has still not managed to surpass 1 million units shipped, also failing to meet projections.


Elsewhere, however, the news was much better for Capcom. The publisher stated that sales had earned $105 million, up from 2016’s $98 million. Operating profit, too, enjoyed a 13% increase over the $6.5 million from the previous year, sitting at $7.4 million. Capcom attributes this upward swing to the performance of Ultra Street Fighter II, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, and Monster Hunter XX.

Exact sales figures were not detailed, but Ultra Street Fighter II was stated to be a “smash hit”, while Resident Evil 7 and Monster Hunter XX “contributed to revenue to a certain extent.”

Capcom will launch Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite in September, and Monster Hunter World is slated for early 2018.
