Resident Evil Village has sold over 4.5 million units since its release in May, breaking another sales record for Capcom.
Capcom has revealed that Resident Evil Village has sold another 500,000 units since the latest update, bringing the total sales to more than 4.5 million.
Given that the game has only been out for a little over two months, that’s a fairly astounding amount. It means Resident Evil Village ranks with some of Capcom’s most popular titles, such as Resident Evil 7, Resident Evil 2 remake, and Monster Hunter World.
Resident Evil 7 is still the series’ best-seller, with a mind-boggling 7.9 million lifetime sales, but given Village‘s spectacular first two months, it wouldn’t be unexpected to see the game catch up to its predecessor in time. Given that Resident Evil Village had the best Steam launch for a Resident Evil game ever, it’s clear that Capcom wants to capitalize on this success.
The promise of more PvP content in the form of Resident Evil Re:Verse and hurriedly added single-player DLC will almost certainly push sales to rise as well.
Only a few days after its release, we learned that Village had surpassed the 3 million sales threshold, putting the Resident Evil series as a whole well over the 100 million mark.
