Capcom's latest financial report has been released, and with it comes the next update on the sales of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be much change since the first update.

Since the release of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite back in September 19, 2017, the game had only sold a total of one million copies up through December 31st of that year. This latest report includes the next three months through March 2018.

According to Capcom's Platinum titles, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite has sold an estimated one million copies as of March 31, 2018. This means that the game was unable to sell 100K units during that three month period.

This probably doesn't come off as too much of a surprise considering Disney and Capcom's silence on this particular subject. Earlier this year, we also learned that Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will not be featured as part of EVO 2018's game lineup.

Please note these sales include copies sold for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the PC. These are both the physical and digital versions of the title.

On the other hand, Monster Hunter: World was a "massive, record-setting success, becoming the best-selling title in company history." Since its release back in January 2018, it sold a total of 7.9 million units.

As you can see, it is now Capcom's highest selling game ever. Because of this, Resident Evil 5 now occupies second place for the company at 7.3 million units sold.

Capcom also noted strong sales for Ultra Street Fighter 2 for the Nintendo Switch.

Unfortunately this does not bode well for Marvel vs. Capcom fans. If the silence wasn't already an indicator that there may not be future updates to the title, the fact that sales have stagnated may have sealed the deal.

As of right now, we only have access to six DLC characters. Interestingly enough, there is now an uneven number of of representatives of both companies.

While Marvel has four downloable characters, Capcom only has had two released. They are Sigma, Monster Hunter, Black Panther Venom, Winter Soldier, and Black Widow.

It is currently unknown if there are plans to fill out the Capcom side with two more fighters.
