Capcom increased revenue by 19% thanks to Monster Hunter and more

By: Jeff Williams | More News: Gaming | Posted: 1 week, 1 day ago

Capcom's financial results for this past April to December were pretty strong, with a 19.3% increase over the same period in 2014. A substantial showing for a company who concentrated a significant amount of resources on mobile development last year.

But even then, there seemed to be an overall increase in interest across the board, probably due to a wider and diverse set of games and franchises they have available. Another factor that played into such a large increase was the way in which Capcom streamlined the development process, reducing overall costs and even the time it takes to release a game. Not the most encouraging reasons, but their products have been mostly solid so far with those new changes.

 

Monster Hunter in general was the big surprise of the year, selling far more than anticipated in North America and doing very strongly in Japan. The newest mobile game, Monster Hunter Explore surpassed a total of 3 billion downloads on Android and iOS.

Consortium: The Tower teased as 'Deus Ex combined with Die Hard'

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 1 week, 1 day ago

Out of nowhere, Interdimensional Games has announced its huge plans for Consortium: The Tower. The small Canadian developer is making a sequel to Consortium, which is the second game in a planned trilogy. The developer has taken to Kickstarter to get Consortium: The Tower off the ground, asking for CAD $450,000.

 

 

Consortium: The Tower isn't your traditional video game, either - with the developers teasing that the game is like "Deus Ex meets Die Hard", which has things happening to my body that scare me. Consortium: The Tower is a first-person shooter, but it's also so much more than that. You should be able to finish the entire game without even using your gun, with Interdimensional Games describing Consortium: The Tower as a sci-fi immersive simulation. Sounds good to me!

Weil will be Instagram's new Head of Product, and will be reporting directly to Twitter CEO Kevin Systrom. Weil has replaced Peter Deng who moved onto another part of Facebook's ever-increasing reach on the world, joining Oculus, earlier this month.

 

Instagram has been trying to snag Weil since last year, so Weil was smart to make his decision considering the exodus of staff from Twitter continues to mount.
