Game Developer Magazine's Top 20 Publishers For 2008


October 1, 2008 Article Start Previous Page 8 of 21 Next
 

14. Capcom

Year formed: 1979

Headquarters: Osaka

Studios: Capcom Interactive (Los Angeles); Cosmic Infinity (Burlington, Ont.); Flagship (Tokyo); Team 1 (Osaka); Team 2 (Osaka)

Revenues were essentially the same as last year for this Japanese publisher, but while review scores fell, the surveyed period brought an expanded plate of releases.

Survey responses praised the company's stable of well-maintained, classic franchises and called its multiplatform strategy "an excellent choice."

The cross-platform release Devil May Cry 4 was the company's big hit for the year in the West, but in Japan the Monster Hunter Portable machine just can't be stopped.

Japan loves portable hunting, and the franchise has sold more than any other series on the PSP, bar none, with latest release MHP 2G having sold over 2.3 million copies.
