Monster Hunter Explore and IP licensing boost Capcom's mobile revenues to $21.9 million

Capcom has released its financials for the first half of its FY18 for the six months ending September 30th 2017.

The company posted revenues of $295.4 million for the period, up 17.6% year-on-year. Profits also rose by an impressive 757.5% year-on-year to $30.5 million.

Breaking this down further, its Digital Contents segment, which includes its mobile games, generated $176.4 million for the period. Mobile revenues for the period came to $21.9 million, up 31.6% year-on-year.

Exploring new avenues

Monster Hunter Explore was the only game specifically broken out as a key performer, and was said to have maintained a stable profit. Capcom also saw an increase in profits from licensing its IP.

Looking ahead, the developer is hard at work on a range of different games, and continuing to use partnerships with other developers to strengthen its revenue. It already has a game, Puzzle Fighter, available in soft launch.

Capcom is also attempting to reduce costs within the company by merging Capcom Mobile with the rest of its development team. The merger was announced at the time of its last financials release, back in July 2017.
