Capcom will focus on PC first for future game releases – gaming news

Capcom, the developer of series comprising Resident Evil and Devil May Cry, will focus on PC as main platform according to Japanese publication Nikkei.

According to COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto, the company will make PC its main gaming platform and aim to achieve 50% of its sales on PC by 2022/23. The statement was made during the Tokyo Game Show, where they also noted that Monster Hunter Rise will also be released on PC, rather than a Nintendo Switch exclusive.

This is a very solid sign that Capcom is refocusing on PC, and it makes sense. Resident Evil games have performed incredibly well for the company on PC, becoming the first franchise to exceed 100 million in total sales for the company. Likewise, Monster Hunter World has sold 17.3 million units, and Resident Evil 7 alone has sold 9.8 million. According to some leaks, games sell better in the West on PC than on PlayStation.

This means good news for PC gamers if you are a fan of Capcom games. While Resident Evil VII encountered some technical issues (textures, for example), the quality of Village on PC has improved a lot overall. I’m glad to see that a big name in the game is now treating the PC like a first-class citizen when it comes to game development.
