We now know the updated sales figures of some Capcom games thanks to Capcom’s “Platinum Titles” list which is pretty much a list of Capcom titles that have shipped over 1 million units. It is updated after every quarter when Capcom reveal their financials for the previous quarter, which ended on June 30th 2017.
It’s an interesting piece of information, as it keeps us informed when a Capcom title has made it past the 1 million shipped copies line. One game in particular that we have been tracking is Dead Rising 4 which never made it to the 1 million mark when it updated the first time since the release of the game. It looks like the release of DLC content, and launching on Steam has done nothing to reach that mark, as once again, Dead Rising 4 has failed to reach the 1 million shipped standard that is needed to be featured as a Platinum Title. It looks very unlikely that it will until a PS4 version is release, and depending on how much it sold, even then it could be tricky for Dead Rising 4 which released to much criticism. This is also way below the series best at 3 million shipped with Dead Rising 2.
Street Fighter V made a small climb up the Platinum Titles list with a move from 1.6 million to 1.7 million since the previous quarter update. It’s been a very slow mover for Capcom after it’s initial launch early last year, but it at least climbed enough to make it to the 1.7 million shipped mark.
