While Capcom has seen an immense amount of success on the Xbox and PlayStation platforms (as well as Switch), it appears that it’s going to focus a little more on PC. While talking recently with Japanese publication Nikkei, Capcom COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto explained the plan that the company has in mind. Here’s his translated notes:
“PC is driving global sales. We have recently stated that we will make the PC our main platform. At this year’s Tokyo Game Show, we focused on exhibiting the PC version of Monster Hunter Rise, and I think people will be able to experience the change in our approach.
The pandemic is changing the way people look at PCs. Smartphones are convenient, but their screens are small, and their touch panels are difficult to operate, so they are not suitable for home working or school classes. I think PCs will be the next big thing after smartphones. The PC can also play high-quality games, so the number of PC users should increase as understanding of the PC increases. We will expand our business for dedicated game consoles, which has been the mainstream up to now, but PC will be the mainstream in the future. Next year or the year after, we want to equalize the ratio of sales to PCs and dedicated consoles.”
That said, at least consoles will still get love. But the question is if we’ll see some classics pop up on PC first. Time will tell.
