The Resident Evil 4 Remake played an important role in this increase in share price. Fans waited a long time for the game, and on its release, it took the internet by storm. It has also become one of the highest-rated games of 2023 so far.
The game has sold over 3 million copies in just 3 days, breaking the record of Resident Evil Village sales which was 3 million in 4 days. Moreover, the Resident Evil 4 remake also surpassed the release day players of Resident Evil Village.
That being said, a company reaching its highest share price is a great achievement. However, it does not come as a complete surprise as Capcom already announced that they are set to sell more games in a fiscal year than before.
While the stock prices may have just recently hit an all-time high, Capcom has shown an excellent track record for many years with games like Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil 2 Remake.
The company also mentioned that they were going to hit the 40 million sales mark by the end of the fiscal year which would not have been possible without Resident Evil 4 Remake.
Upcoming games like Street Fighter 6 should also ensure that fans continue to enjoy Capcom’s high-quality output and that the company continues to perform well. What are your thoughts on Capcom reaching its all-time high share price? Did you enjoy Resident Evil 4? Let’s discuss this in the comments.
