Resident Evil 6 isn't selling as well as Capcom hoped

Capcom has been forced to lower its financial forecast for the current fiscal year, cutting 3.3 billion yen ($39 million) from its estimated profits for the year, thanks to weakened Resident Evil 6 sales.
Capcom has been forced to lower its financial forecast for the current fiscal year, cutting 3.3 billion yen ($39 million) from its estimated profits for the year. The company says that while initial sales of Resident Evil 6 were strong, they have "subsequently weakened" and will fall short of the company's previously estimated figures. It's no wonder, as the game was one of the year's biggest disappointments, receiving a lukewarm reception from the press and gamers alike. On top of this, Monster Hunter 4 has also been delayed. The game was due for release on Nintendo 3DS in Japan on March 2013, but will now be released sometime later in the year "in order to further raise the quality of this game." Capcom now estimates that it will take 6.5 billion yen ($77.0 million) in profits during the current fiscal year, down from the original forecast of 9.8 billion yen ($116.1 million), and revenue of 93.5 billion ($1.1 billion), down from 105 billion ($1.2 billion).
