Resident Evil Village Since its launch in May, it has delivered more than 4.5 million units, exceeding another sales milestone for Capcom.
Capcom has announced that Resident Evil Village has sold another 500,000 units since we last received an update from the company, which means that total sales are now over 4.5 million.
Given that the game was released in less than two months, it’s a pretty impressive number. This means that Resident Evil Village is upstairs with some of Capcom’s biggest games, including Resident Evil 7, Resident Evil 2 Remake and Monster Hunter World.
Resident Evil 7 is still the best-selling product in this series, with an absurd 7.9 million lifetime sales, but given the Village meteorites in the first two months, it wouldn’t be surprising if the game caught up with its predecessor in time. Given that Resident Evil Village had the best Steam launch ever for Resident Evil, it’s clear that Capcom wants to handle this momentum.
The promise of additional PvP content in the form of Resident Evil Re: Verse and the hastily added single player DLC is likely to increase these sales numbers as well.
The company needed some good news after the Resident Evil 3 Remake failed to impress, anyway (although Capcom at least expected it).
Just a few days after its launch, we heard that the Village exceeded 3 million sales, which moved the Resident Evil line as a whole to over 100 million sales points.
