Capcom Ranked as Top Publisher of 2018

Capcom Ranked

Capcom has been crowned the best-ranked publisher of 2018 among all the major publishing companies, Metacritic’s stats show.

The review aggregate site compiled data from 2018’s various video game rankings and looked at the publishers that had put out at least 12 games during the year, and among those, Capcom reigned supreme. Not every game it put out was in the green to receive a positive score, but there were enough of those that did to put it above the rest of the year’s publishers. Capcom jumped five spots from the previous year to be ranked at the No. 1 spot for 2018 above other publishers like Sega, Nintendo, and Ubisoft.

According to Metacritic’s data, Capcom had an average score of 79.3, nearly a full point ahead of the No. 2 publisher, Sega. The top-rated game for Capcom was unsurprisingly Monster Hunter: World – specifically for the Xbox One version – a game which came out at the start of 2018 and was received tremendously well by the community and became the publisher’s best-selling game it’s ever made. The lowest-ranked release was Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 on the Nintendo Switch with a score of 60, and according to users’ reviews, the community’s favorite game was Okami HD on the Nintendo Switch with a score of 8.7.

“With most publishers merely moving up or down one spot, there are few significant changes compared to last year’s rankings,” Metacritic’s report stated. “But this is the major exception. Increasing its Metascore for the second straight year, the 40-year-old Japanese videogame company soared to the top of our annual rankings after placing 5th a year ago. Capcom received positive reviews from the gaming press for five out of every six products released in 2018—an 83.3% success rate that easily led our group of the largest publishers.”

Capcom already appears to be off to an excellent start for 2019 as well with a new game that gave the company a strong opening release for the year. Resident Evil 2 was published by Capcom and has been applauded by critics and the Resident Evil fandom alike, and that includes our review which spoke highly of the game. Capcom also has plans to release more content for the game in the future with free DLC stories already planned.
