A largely prolific year 2021 for Capcom


This is called an excellent year: in 2021, the Japanese company achieved a record in terms of sales.

2021 was a more than prolific year for Capcom. The latter was able to count on two of these successful series to set a new sales record. With 25.8 million games distributedthe Japanese company has in fact achieved a figure superior business 35.9% to that made previously.

A very nice result to which the cult survival-horror saga contributed: resident Evil. And as proof, the latest opus (Resident Evil Village) has won over, since its launch in May, more than 5 million players. For its part, Resident Evil 7 still has the coast, with a million copies purchased in the year, bringing the number of total sales to more than 10 million.

But, it is especially Monster Hunter Rise which gets the prize, with its 8 million distributions on Switch only. Which will quickly evolve considering its recent release on computer as well as the arrival, next summer, of the Sunbreak DLC. A reputation that Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin does not enjoy, which touched 1.4 million players.
