It’s been something of a trend in recent years that Capcom’s major releases don’t just enjoy strong sales at launch, they also continue to see sustained sales across prolonged periods of time, with the likes of Monster Hunter and Resident Evil in particular benefitting from this. That doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of slowing down. In their recent quarterly fiscal report (via David Gibson on Twitter), Capcom confirmed that Monster Hunter World has now sold 17.1 million, up from 16.8 million at the end of the previous quarter.

Meanwhile, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne’s cumulative sales stand at 7.7 million units, which means that World and Iceborne have now collectively sold almost 25 million units. The newest entry in the series’ are also mentioned as 4.8 million in Capcom’s presentation, but it’s worth pointing out that these figures are as of March 31. At the end of April, Capcom had announced that Monster Hunter Rise had shipped over 6 million units worldwide.

Resident Evil is continuing to fare strongly as well. The launch of Resident Evil Village clearly kicked up interest in recent releases once more, with Resident Evil 7 jumping from its 8.5 million sales at the end of the previous quarter to an impressive 9 million cumulative sales now. This doesn’t come as a surprise, seeing as Resident Evil 7 is still shipping a million copies a year, four years on from its launch. Meanwhile, Resident Evil 2 is at 8.1 million units, while Resident Evil 3 has also topped 4 million in a little less than a year of its launch.

Resident Evil Village recently launched, and shipped 3 million copies over its launch weekend.
