Capcom recently stated that the continued steady sales of the Resident Evil 3 remake, released earlier this year, drove the company to record Q2 profits in the current fiscal year, but what exactly does that mean for the game’s sales?
In their fiscal presentation, Capcom revealed the updated sales figures for the game, revealing that as of September 30, within 6 months of its launch, Resident Evil 3 has crossed 3 million units in sales, up from 2.7 million units three months ago.
Those are solid numbers, especially given the game’s relatively muted critical reception- though the remake is still falling significantly short of the pace at which other recent Resident Evil games have sold. For instance, at last count, Resident Evil 7’s sales stood at 7.9 million units, while Resident Evil 2’s sales were at 7.2 million units.
Capcom, however, have been perfectly happy with the pace at which Resident Evil 3 has been selling, having said earlier this year that it’s sales are more or less matching internal expectations.
Resident Evil 3 is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and it’s possible that the game could be headed to the Nintendo Switch as a cloud-exclusive release as well. Read more on that through here.
