Capcom Lowers Earnings Forecast Due To Pachislo And Game Delays

    0

    Capcom have revised their earnings forecast for the fiscal year ending March 31st, 2015. The company says that this is primarily due to its pachislot machine sales, and has lowered its net sales expectations from $673 million to $547 million.

     

    Capcom say their pachislo machine sales have been severely impacted by a delay in the introduction of a new model caused by a revision in the method used for testing. The revision was made in September 2014.

     

    In addition to their pachislo business, Capcom have also delayed some of the midrange games they were planning on releasing soon, and this, too, will impact the company’s earnings. While they haven’t specified just which games were delayed, we know that Deep Down has seen a delay to its beta release.
