Capcom seems pleased with Dead Rising 2’s sales. The publisher sent out a press release announcing their zombie paradise game shipped over two million units worldwide since its September 24 debut in Europe.
Last fiscal year, Capcom forecasted three million units of Dead Rising 2 before April 2011.
While Dead Rising 2 did well, Capcom’s overall profits took a tumble. For the period between April – September 2010, Capcom earned 3,942 million yen ($48) in operating income, a 23% drop compared to last year. The publisher cited the "substantial underperformance" of Lost Planet 2 and the appreciation of the yen as reasons for the operating profit plunge.
Capcom planned on selling 2.2 million copies of Lost Planet 2 worldwide.
