Capcom’s top-selling franchise, Resident Evil, sold 7 million units in the first quarter, the highest quarter-over-quarter rise in the prior three years.

Resident Evil Village, with 4.5 million units distributed to date, has helped boost total brand sales during a critical post-pandemic period. According to Capcom‘s most recent sales numbers, the horror series has now sold 117 million units globally, with 7 million RE titles sold in the first quarter of 2021, from March to June.

Resident Evil accounted for more than half of Capcom’s overall game sales for the quarter. During the first quarter of this year, the company sold 13.3 million copies of games, with digital sales accounting for the majority of the revenue.

A closer look at the stats reveals the franchise’s genuine staying power. Back catalog titles account for a chunk of Capcom’s quarterly and annual revenues. Evergreen sales of older titles are a continuous earner because to platforms such as PC, which gives deep digital discounts, and Xbox, which enables backwards compatibility to keep access to these games over time.

As a result, older titles such as Resident Evil 6, 5, and a slew of HD remasters can sell hundreds of thousands of copies in a single quarter.

Here’s a breakdown of the current top-selling Resident Evil games, as well as the titles that contributed to the massive 7 million sales total:

  • Resident Evil 7 – 9.8 million units (+800,000 copies)
  • RE2 Remake – 8.6 million units (+500,000 copies)
  • RE5 PC/PS3/Xbox 360 – 7.9 million units (+100,000 copies)
  • RE6 -7.90 million units (+100,000 copies)
  • Resident Evil Village – 4.5 million units (+4.5 million copies)
  • RE HD Remaster – 3.1 million units (+100,000 copies)
  • RE0 HD Remaster – 3 million units (+100,000 copies)
  • RE Revelations 2 – 2.8 million units (+100,000 copies)
  • RE4 HD – 2.3 million units (+100,000 copies)
  • RE6 HD – 2.3 million units (+100,000 copies)
