Capcom’s COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto has officially released a statement detailing the expansion options available to the company in 2019 and in years to come. The statement says that PC is fast growing to be a competitive platform for the company, as the sales ratio on the PC has improved considerably over the years. Monster Hunter World  had touched 11 million units by the end of January 2019, with the PC platform contributing significantly to the sales figures. The Resident Evil 2 remake had shipped some decent sales figures too, with 3 million units shipping out within the first week of launch.

 The improvement in sales ratio on the PC means that Capcom can no longer ignore it as a potential platform for development, which does mean more titles from Capcom could be making their way to the PC. Capcom have not mentioned the exact numbers for either Monster Hunter World or Resident Evil 2 remake, but the statement does mention that Monster Hunter World was a huge hit on the PC.

The statement also talks about an increased focus on e-sports for the coming year and looks favorably on the establishment of the Japanese eSports Union (JeSU). The Capcom Pro Tour and the Street Fighter League are two major Capcom events already in effect, and Capcom plans to add more to it in the coming years. Expansion of esports is something “very serious” according to Capcom, and something they plan to promote for quite some time in the future.
