In the last hours, it is inevitably attracting the attention of all Capcom fans, a software house that has created historical series like Devil May Cry, Monster Hunter and Resident Evil, a mysterious payment.
In the last financial report, in fact, a profit of 19 million dollars was announced, which entered the pockets of the company in Osaka during the first quarter of the fiscal year 2019. These gains seem to fall within the category of royalties, which could be due to an agreement to bring the next chapter of a series or a new IP exclusively on a specific platform. It is therefore not to be excluded that in the future a new announcement of a collaboration with Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony or, why not, Google and its Stadia may arrive. Unfortunately, no further details are known about the issue and the interested parties did not want to specify the reasons behind these revenues.
In the meantime, we remind you that Capcom’s earnings in the last period have been booming thanks to the release of titles such as Devil May Cry V, Resident Evil 2 Remake and Monster Hunter World.
But that the most interesting is that Capcom booked a ¥2bn or $19m royalty one-off from deals for their IP in Digital Contents….did they license their IP to MSFT or Google for a streaming platform game? Do not think its a China deal…so who was it with?
