Capcom Targets 100 Million Game Sales In One Year Through Mobile Market

Expert Verified By

But PC Still Main Platform For Capcom!

The Chief Operating Officer of Capcom, Haruhiro Tsujimoto, recently unveiled the company’s goals. The aim is to achieve the staggering milestone of selling 100 million copies of their titles within a single year.

A recent report reveals that the driving force behind this ambitious goal will be the well-timed launch of a lineup of AAA titles on mobile devices.

Why it matters: Mobile gaming is poised to grow exponentially in the coming years, and Capcom is ready to cement its place as the leader in the industry.

While talking to Bloomberg in an interview, Tsujimoto declared:

“I hope to achieve our 100 million copies goal with contributions from AAA titles on smartphones.”

This statement signals a massive shift for the well-known gaming company, which has always been linked with console and PC gaming.

Tsujimoto highlighted that while PCs are their main platform, bringing AAA titles to smartphones will be crucial in reaching their goal. It is important to mention that Capcom’s shift to mobile gaming was not without its technological challenges.

However, a game-changing partnership with Apple accelerated this move, with flagship games like Resident Evil Village and the Resident Evil 4 Remake set to launch on the iPhone 15 Pro later this year.

Playing games like Resident Evil Village and Assassin’s Creed Mirage is now a seamless experience on smartphones. That is mainly thanks to the cutting-edge technologies used in the new iPhone 15 Pro.

In fact, Apple believes this impressive smartphone has the potential to substitute a gaming console thanks to the additional utility of smartphones.

Capcom New Titles

 

Despite an annual report reflecting a 33% decline in mobile game revenue to ยฅ2.8 billion ($18.8 million) in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2023, Capcom is not discouraged.

The company is actively looking into fresh opportunities, such as porting Resident Evil games to the iPhone and collaborating with third-party mobile developers.

Furthermore, Capcom is focusing on the growing gaming market in India, finding it more appealing than China. Tsujimoto explains this decision, predicting substantial growth in India over the next 5 to 10 years.

In the same interview with Bloomberg, Tsujimoto was asked if he would consider an acquisition offer from Microsoft. The Capcom COO declined the idea politely, stating disinterest in acquisition offers.

For now, fans are certainly excited about Resident Evil Village on iPhone 15 Pro and iPad, set for release in October. This milestone promises to revolutionize the mobile gaming space.
