News Tech: In its most recent Q1’22 quarter, Capcom sold 50% of all game units on the PC platform, demonstrating how essential this platform is to the company. The PC is a terrific platform for making money off of classic catalogue games because it is almost entirely digital. When a Steam summer sale event offers significant discounts, you often have a recipe for increased sales.
Apparently that’s what happened during Capcom’s recent Q1 period. PC made up 50% of unit sales during the quarter. Capcom sold 11.7 million games during Q1’22, so PC games sold roughly 5.85 million. “The ratio of units sold on the PC during the first quarter was approximately 50%. For the full year we expect this to slightly decrease due to the release of a major new title in the fourth quarter,” Capcom corporate told investors during a Q&A session.
