Capcom has revealed its latest financial report (ending 31 March 2013), and the game company has expressed its disappointment in the sales of Resident Evil 6.

Resident Evil 6 sold over 4.8 million units, and while that may seem like a lot for any other publisher, Capcom was not happy with the results.

“Despite recording brisk sales when it debuted, [RE6] subsequently lost its momentum, resulting in the failure to achieve planned sales and fulfil its role as a driver of sales expansion,” said Capcom.

On the plus side, Capcom’s new IP, Dragon’s Dogma, exceeded expectations and became a surprise hit for the company.

Monster Hunter 3 (Tri) G HD Ver, despite being the company’s first Wii U game, was also a strong title in the fiscal year, as it performed well above expectations.

Overall, Capcom racked up a revenue of 72.7-billion yen (R6.87-billion), and a net income of 6.6-billion yen (62-million), which was more than double it made from the same period in the previous fiscal year.
