The Resident Evil franchise has exhibited incredibly long legs where its sales are concerned, and unsurprisingly, that continues to be the case. Capcom has updated its list of Platinum Titles, providing updated sales numbers for its Resident Evil games, and there have been some interesting developments.
For starters, 2019’s Resident Evil 2 remake has hit 12.6 million units sold, selling 700,000 units in Q1 (April-June) of FY 23/24. That means it’s overtaken Resident Evil 7 – which now stands at 12.4 million units sold – as the highest-selling single Resident Evil release to date, though Resident Evil 5 is still the best-selling game in the franchise, with combined sales of all of its releases (including the Gold Edition) sitting at 13.9 million units.
Meanwhile, Resident Evil Village has now hit 8.3 million units, up from 8 million units as of the beginning of June, while 2020’s Resident Evil 3 remake stands at 7.6 million units sold, up from 7 million units as of March 31.
Recently, Capcom also announced that the Resident Evil 4 remake, which launched in March, has sold over 5 million units.
Updated sales figures have also been revealed for Monster Hunter titles- read more on that through here.
