Video game giant Capcom has been on a roll, releasing several blockbuster games that have not only garnered critical acclaim but also achieved impressive sales. The revamped version of the cult classic, Resident Evil 4, for instance, has sold over 5 million copies. The latest entry in the renowned Street Fighter series, Street Fighter 6, has revolutionized the arcade fighting genre with its state-of-the-art controls and visuals. The game has also cultivated a fervently competitive online community. Additionally, Exoprimal, a fresh third-person shooter available on Xbox Game Pass, has been described as incredibly entertaining, rapidly acquiring a substantial following.
In a strategic move, Capcom has alluded to the launch of an undisclosed title set to hit the market before the end of its financial year in March 2024. This announcement has sparked a flurry of speculation, and fans are eagerly anticipating the new game’s reveal.
During a recent Q&A session with investors, Capcom outlined ambitious plans to sell 45 million game units across console platforms before the start of 2024. To achieve this lofty target, the company plans to release a significant new title and host various promotional sales events in the latter half of the fiscal year.
While Capcom has kept the details of the upcoming title under wraps, fans are already speculating what it could be. Some of the top contenders are a new entry in the Monster Hunter series, a sequel to Mega Man, Devil May Cry 6, or a remake of the nostalgic Dino Crisis game. Given that the Monster Hunter series is approaching its 20-year milestone in March 2024, a new game or remastered editions of existing titles in this franchise seem increasingly likely.
With a track record of recent successes and exciting plans for the future, Capcom is solidifying its position as a leading player in the gaming industry. Whether it’s continuing to innovate beloved franchises or launching completely new titles, Capcom shows no signs of slowing down as we approach 2024.
