A few months back, we had reported that the Resident Evil 2 remake was close to beating the original in sales. Which, shouldn’t have been much of a surprise considering the game’s success.

Well, it’s been confirmed with Capcom announcing it with their press release regarding the remake of Resident Evil 3.

The Resident Evil series has garnered high praise from both fans and the media internationally, with Resident Evil 2, a remake released in January of this year, achieving more than 5 million units in sales* and being honored with Ultimate Game of the Year in the U.K. Golden Joystick Awards 2019—the highest prize awarded to games released in the current year.

It’s important to take into account how impressive this number really is. The original sold 4.96 copies from 1998 well into the earlier 2000s covering the PS1, PC, Nintendo 64, Nintendo Gamecube and Sega Dreamcast. Resident Evil 2 (2019) has been out for 11 months and was only available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC and has far surpassed five million units in sales.

RE2 won Ultimate GotY at the Golden Joysticks and today it’ll be up for GotY at The Game Awards.

We will be covering The Game Awards tonight LIVE on Facebook and Twitch.

Also, the mysterious Steam achievement for Resident Evil 2 is seemly to tie together the events of RE2 and 3. Hopefully, we’ll have more information on that soon.

Finally, Resident Evil 2 remake is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Resident Evil 3: Nemesis will be infecting PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on April 3, 2020.
