Capcom Halves Profit Forecast After Poor Sales In Mobile Market

Capcom has announced ahead of its annual financial results that it will revise its current profit projections by more than 50 per cent.

not surprising since crapcom sucks ass these days.

Well they only have themselves to blame for putting all their eggs in one basket. If they didn't degrade so many of their IPs they could rely on more than just Monster Hunters & Street Fighters to keep them afloat.

And SF isn't gonna hold up too well for much longer. They ruined SF x Tekken with microtransactions, suprisingly. USF4 is now getting copies of their SFxTekken chars, cuz they don't want to put any $ into devs to make new chars. They are copying over stages too. They just suck so much in general now that it's ridiculous. Luckily the SF team still has devs that care about SF and make sure the game is balanced and plays well. Other than that, everything they are doing with even SF is pretty corny. It's time for SF5 already, for the hardcore gamers again, like you promised, Crapcom.

Maybe they will change their strategy of making games that I won't ever buy from them? Sure seems to be hurting them anyway. I guess completely boycotting a publisher this past 5 years does make an impact. :)

Good. Can't wait until more companies realize their fanbase isn't iphone gamers.

WHAT! Going after the mobile market has failed but I thought to them it was such a money maker....oh what I shame /s

Their own fault, I hope Square Enix take notice aswell.

I hope the entire gaming industry takes notice, particularly the Japanese part of it. Mobile gaming is great and all, but not the money-making opportunity that console-gaming provides. Capcom has some great franchises, and next-gen is screaming for new games. They have a market just waiting for them. Sad, really.

I'm surprised myself. Maybe if they diversified and put some money into mobile and flushed the other half down the toilet they would have done better.

The market is too complex these days. Almost as if people only want to spend money on quality games that are fully complete and aren't nickle-and-diming them every second.

SE is apparently doing alright in the mobile market.
