Capcom Ranked Number One for the Second Time in Metacritic’s Annual Game Publisher Rankings!

OSAKA, Japan–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

Metacritic is a website where reviews from critics around the world for movies, video games, TV shows, or albums, are assigned a score, the weighted average of which is called a “Metascore,” with 100 being the maximum score possible. Each year in their Annual Game Publisher Rankings, Metacritic ranks publishers worldwide based upon factors such as the average score of each publishers’ titles, the ratio of both positive and negative reviews, and the number of titles that have achieved a Metascore of 90 or higher.

In this 14th Annual Game Publisher Ranking, Capcom was recognized for the overall critical acclaim that it received for its games, marking the second time Capcom has taken the top spot, which it previously won in the 2019 ranking. These games included Resident Evil 4, which has sold over 7 million units since its March 2023 release approximately one year ago, Street Fighter 6, a fighting game for the new generation that is heating up the modern esports scene, and Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, an updated revival from Capcom’s library of titles.

Capcom remains firmly committed to satisfying the expectations of all stakeholders by leveraging its industry-leading game development capabilities in order to create highly entertaining gameplay experiences.
