Capcom has been investing heavily in PC gaming in recent years. This strategy must be yielding excellent results, as the publisher wants PC to become the main hardware platform for its games within the next few years.
This strategy was revealed by Capcom COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto on the opening day of this year's Tokyo Game Show. These are not some far-reaching plans. The company believes that in 2022 or 2023 half of its games will be sold on PC.
Capcom's increased investment in PC games has been evident for many years. There are still some titles that are released on PC well behind the console editions - for example Monster Hunter: World and the upcoming Monster Hunter: Rise - but these are increasingly the exception to the rule. Currently, most of the publisher's titles debut on PC at the same time as on other hardware platforms.
A few months ago, the company reported excellent sales results for PC games and assured that it was going to do its best to release new games simultaneously on PC and consoles.
Finally, it's worth mentioning that during TGS 2021 Capcom also revealed that the PC version of Monster Hunter: Rise will be released on January 12, 2022, and a demo will be released on October 13, this year. In turn, the release of the Sunbreak expansion is scheduled for next summer, which will debut simultaneously on PC and Nintendo Switch.
