Unsurprisingly, the Resident Evil series is continuing to sell well.

Mainline Resident Evil titles manage to extremely well even in the worst of cirmustances- Resident Evil 5 and are often called the dark horses of survival horror franchise by series fans, owing to their more action-oriented nature. They are, however, also the best-selling Resident Evil games. Capcom recently updated their Platinum games page – which lists all games published by them that have crossed sales of a million units worldwide – and provided updated figures on several titles.

Resident Evil 5 is still the publisher’s second highest selling game to date (behind Monster Hunter World), with total sales of 11 million units worldwide. The game’s original release stands at 7.4 million units sold, with the Gold Edition contributing 2.3 million units, and the PS4 and Xbox One re-release selling the remaining 1.3 million copies. Resident Evil 6, meanwhile, is still at 8.8 million copies sold collectively (with 1.6 million of those being on the PS4 and Xbox One). Notably, Resident Evil 7 has seen a decent jump in sales figures. Standing at 5 million units in April of 2018, the game has now sold a total of 6.1 million units worldwide.

Meanwhile, Capcom’s most recent Resident Evil release also seems to be doing very well. Although they haven’t provided sold-through figures for Resident Evil 2 yet, the remake had shipped 3 million copies worldwide when last we had heard of it, so it seems likely it will be joining Capcom’s Platinum catalog soon.
