Dragon's Dogma 2 PS5 PlayStation

Capcom has revealed that, mainly due to Dragon's Dogma 2's success, the company will pay out more money to shareholders than previously anticipated. The combination developer/publisher has revised its full-year earnings and dividend forecasts for the financial year ending 31st March 2024.

Across all platforms, Dragon's Dogma 2 had sold more than 2.5 million copies at the start of April, ranking highly in PS Store sales charts ever since. IGN sifted through the data announced via a press release, suggesting that sales, profits, and earnings per share have all been revised up in single-digit percentages. Of course, things can still change, but currently, Capcom expects that earnings per share will rise from 95.64 to 103.53 (million yen).

It's nice to see positive financial news from a publicly traded video game company for a change and that Capcom's investment in Dragon's Dogma 2 has paid off. Capcom's other games have contributed to this overall success, with Street Fighter 6 getting a specific shout-out. Last we heard, SF6 had itself sold some 3 million copies, and that was back in January.

The future seems bright for the Dragon's Dogma series. Have you had a chance to dive in? What is Capcom doing that others could learn from? Let us know in the comments section below.
