Japanese publisher and developer Capcom have shared their plans for the fiscal year ending March 31 2021. Capcom plan to release multiple major titles by then and aim to achieve a record 28 million unit sales.

Capcom have big plans for the next year. The Japanese publisher aim to reach a record-breaking 28 million unit sales and also release several major titles by March 31 2020. Sadly, the company did not share any additional details about these new games.

To make things a bit clearer, Capcom plan to release 13 new SKUs. One SKU is a release on one platform. So for example, a Monster Hunter game on PC, Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 would take three SKUs. This means that we should not expect to see a lot of new games since Resident Evil 3 already took three SKUs.

Thanks to some earlier rumours, we know Resident Evil 4 Remake will probably be one of these new games. It is safe to assume that Capcom will aim for cross-gen release which means five SKUs out of ten, so yeah, do not expect an avalanche of new games from Capcom by March 31 2021.
