Capcom Focusing on High Quality Games, “Less Focused on Day-One Sales”


Capcom sounds to be more interested in quality over quantity in the production of its games, according to a recent interview.

During an interview with, Capcom Europe’s COO, Stuart Turner, spoke on Capcom’s desire to reach high standards.

“While we have shareholders to appease, it’s not just about commercial performance. There is an artistic element that always comes in where we know this is the right way. And while if we compare Resident Evil 7 to Resident Evil 6 the absolute numbers are not the same, in terms of the profitability… it’s completely fine. It ticked all of our boxes internally. It was really well received. And in some respects, getting some very good review scores counts as much for Capcom as a game that sells millions and millions and millions. We’d prefer a game that got a nine and sold less, than got a six but sold more.”

Capcom marketing director Antoine Molant backed up Turner’s comments by stating that the publisher is “less focused on Day-One sales these days, too.”

The interview also covered how the publisher felt fans would react to the Resident Evil 2 remake announcement.

Originally, the fear fans would be split on Resident Evil 2 Remake sparked concern because the game is a return to form for the series. Since the remake’s unveiling, however, Turner states the team has been “taken aback by how well [pre-orders] have gone down.”
