CAPCOM: Rise in net profits aided by RE6, Dragon's Dogma

Publish date:

Capcom has announced positive half-year financial results for the period ending on September 30th.

Sales were up just over 55 per cent year-over-year, bringing in around $570m net.

Resident Evil 6 shipped (not sold) 3.7m units during the period, with Dragon's Dogma adding over 1m sales itself.

The firm's digital numbers were very strong, pulling in $438m - a 69 per cent increase from the same period in 2011.

The one letdown for Capcom was its arcade department, which saw a seven per cent decline as a result (at least in part) of the closing of two locations owned by the publisher.
