Today Capcom published an English translation of its Q2 Fiscal Year 2022 Q&A session with investors, which revealed some interesting tidbits about the company's presence on PC. According to Capcom management, game sales on PC made up 50% of its unit sales for the Q2 period (July - September 2022).

Q: What is the ratio of PC sales to total unit sales in your Consumer sub-segment at the end of Q2 in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2023?

A: Approximately 50%, with primarily catalog title sales growing.

Capcom sold a total of 9.6 million games during the Q2 period, with most of those sales being made overseas and from catalog title sales. These proportional shares reveal that Capcom sold approximately 4.8 million games on PC during the period.

This certainly accounts for the significant jump in the percentage of digital games for the quarter. According to Capcom's filings, digital accounted for a whopping 95% of its unit sales for the period, or 9.12 million units. PC games are all-digital, so we know that PC made up 52% of total digital game sales for Capcom's Q2.
