Capcom plans to release “multiple major new titles” by March 31, 2021, the company said in its fiscal year 2019 results presentation.

The company aims to achieve a record 28 million unit sales in the fiscal year ending March 2021, which it intends to do by promoting a digital strategy via the expansion of sales regions and flexible pricing, releasing the aforementioned major titles, and pursuing ongoing sales for major titles from past years. A total of 13 new title SKUs are planned, three of which should already be filled by the April 3-released Resident Evil 3 remake for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

To compare, in the fiscal year ended March 2018, when Capcom shipped Monster Hunter: World and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, the company achieved 24.4 million total unit sales. In the fiscal year ended March 2019, when it shipped Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5, it achieved 25.3 million total unit sales. And in the fiscal year ended March 2020, when it shipped Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, it achieved 25.5 million total unit sales.

Capcom also announced that sales of the Resident Evil 3 remake have topped 2.5 million units, and sales of Monster Hunter: World have surpassed 15.5 million units.
