As I’ve previously said, Capcom recently updated their latest fiscal report, citing Resident Evil 3‘s sales and other Resident Evil titles sold digitally as some of the factors in their breaking company record sales.
However, they also dropped some info on their Platinum Titles list.
The Two Heavy Hitters
Resident Evil 2‘s remake has not stopped killing it. As of this update, cut off on December 31st, 2020, Resident Evil 2 has sold 7.8 million units. This keeps it cemented as one of the best-selling in the series.
However, even with this hefty number, Resident Evil 2 lives in the shadow of series revival entry, Resident Evil 7.
Ethan Winters’ first foray into the world of survival horror has sold a titanic 8.5 million units. This makes it Capcom’s second-best-selling title ever, only stuck behind Monster Hunter World.
Some of Capcom’s other big titles are still seeing good sells, as well.
Devil May Cry 5 hit 4.1 million units, which includes a whopping 200,000 units just from September 30th up to the cutoff. However, this may or may not include the next-gen release of Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition. Knowing Capcom, though, they tend to consider these types of things as separate titles.
A couple of other big milestones were hit too. Street Fighter 5 hit 5.2 million units to date. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy also passed its first 1 million mark.
With these benchmarks set, Capcom is gonna have to work hard to surpass these sales with their big upcoming titles. In March, Monster Hunter Rise will be hitting store shelves. Meanwhile, Resident Evil Village looms ever closer, with a release date set in May.
Hopefully, we can see our dev squad hit new heights once more.
