Capcom cuts Resi 6 sales forecast, offers Monster Hunter 4, DmC guidance

Firm outlines fiscal second half projections for major titles

Capcom has cut its full year Resident Evil 6 shipping guidance from seven million units to six million.


At the end of July, shortly after showcasing Resi 6 at E3 "to overall positive reviews", the publisher said it believed it was "in a position to positively achieve our 7 million target".

Outlining its shipping projections for "major titles" in the second half of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013, the company also said today that it expects to shift two million copies of Monster hunter 4 and two million units of Devil May Cry reboot DmC.

The former is a 3DS exclusive that's set for release in Japan next March, so Capcom's expecting it to hit the ground running, while the latter is set to launch globally on PS3 and Xbox 360 in January.

Capcom also said it plans to "aggressively distribute additional DLC for major titles like Dragon's Dogma and Resident Evil 6 in the second half of the business year.

Yesterday Capcom said revenue for the six months ended September 30 was up 55 per cent from the same period last year, helping grow profit to £32 million.
