Five million sales for Devil May Cry 5
Capcom has just announced that Devil May Cry 5 has just crossed the 5 million copies sold since its release on March 8, 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. A record for a game of this franchise which has exceeded 25 million units sold worldwide since its beginnings 20 years earlier.
This performance should ensure a bright future for the action franchise, even if the director Hideaki Itsuno must juggle between the expectations of Dante fans and those who hope for the action-RPG Dragon’s Dogma for almost 10 years. As a reminder, Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition is one of the freshly optimized games for the VRR on PS5.
By crossing the level of 5 million, Devil May Cry 5 comes to play the intruders in a circle of champions from the three largest franchises in Capcom that are Resident Evil, Monster Hunter and Street Fighter. The Capcom database will be updated next month in the wake of the financial results which promise to be even better than expected.
For the fiscal year closed on March 31, 2022, Capcom now anticipates a turnover of 809 million euros and a net profit of 239 million euros, which promises to be the new reference year of the publisher Japanese. Capcom cites the best than expected sales of Resident Evil Village, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, without forgetting the PC release of Monster Hunter Rise and the positive effect of promotions.
