Capcom develops and publishes multiple iconic game franchises, including Monster Hunter and Resident Evil. As digital storefronts have become more prominent, the split of games sold digitally versus physically has shifted — jarringly. In a shareholders meeting that was first noticed by GamesIndustry.biz, Capcom stated that 80% of its game sales are digital.
Capcom also explained that it will be "promoting our digital strategy with an objective of 90% [digital share]" for the time being. 2018's Monster Hunter World is Capcom's bestselling game of all time, with over 15.7 million copies sold. Meanwhile, the Resident Evil 3 remake that released earlier in 2020 has sold over 2 million copies.
Capcom's next big game is Resident Evil Village, which is set to release on Xbox Series X, PC and PS5 at some point in 2021. This survival-horror title is the eighth mainline entry in the franchise and features a first-person perspective, a snowy village and werewolves. Meanwhile, a Resident Evil 4 remake is rumored to be coming at some point in 2022.
