Capcom recently confirmed that since its launch in March up until June 30, the Resident Evil 3 remake had shipped 2.7 million copies worldwide. And while that is by no means a number to scoff at, it’s significantly lower than the 4.2 million worldwide shipments last year’s Resident Evil 2 remake pulled off in a similar two month window after launch.

With Resident Evil 3 having been met with much less praise than its predecessor and its sales being lower as well, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Capcom are disappointed in how the game’s performed, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Speaking in their recent quarterly Q&A with investors, they said that the remake’s sales have been pretty much in line with their internal expectations, especially in context of how the original Resident Evil 3: Nemesis sold. Capcom additionally also plans to drive sales with pricing strategies for the remake this Holiday season.

“With reference to sales trends for the original Resident Evil 3: Nemesis as well, results have not especially deviated from our internal sales plan,” Capcom said. “Looking ahead, we will consider pricing strategies targeting the holiday season, starting in autumn and running to the end of the year.”

Recently, Capcom said that Resident Evil 3’s “solid sales” had driven profits for them in the preceding financial quarter.

During the aforementioned Q&A session, they also talked about possible price hikes for their games on PS5 and Xbox Series X, saying that they’re currently undecided on the matter. Read more on that through here.
