Capcom's recently published financial report
for the first half of the current fiscal year contains some fairly gutsy estimates
for sales expectations of the developer's upcoming titles -- for instance, the report anticipates selling 300,000 copies of Resident Evil 5 Alternative Edition
by March 31, 2010. However, the company expects one game to be its biggest blockbuster by a fairly enormous sales margin: Lost Planet 2
, which, according to the report, will sell 3.7 million copies in the second half of FY 2010.
That's a fairly monumental increase compared to the sales statistics for the original Lost Planet
, which has sold 2.28 million units life-to-date according to VGChartz
. Don't get us wrong -- we've enjoyed what we've seen from the game thus far. However, if Capcom's hoping to approach that target, it may want to consider tossing some Pokémon in there. Perhaps a cameo by Master Chief, too, for good measure.
