Records third-best week one sales in series.
Capcom’s bet with Resident Evil 7 has paid off. Not only has the company recorded 2.5 million units shipped and more than 7 million downloads but Gfk Chart-Track notes that the first person survival horror had the third highest launch week sales in the franchise’s history.
Resident Evil 7 beat out Grand Theft Auto 5 which moved down to second place. Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue had a surprisingly strong debut at third place while FIFA 17 is in fourth place and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare shifts to fifth.
Rocket League is still in sixth followed by Battlefield 1 in seventh. Yakuza 0, Sega’s prequel to the series that finally released in the west, is in eighth place for its first week. Watch Dogs 2 and Steep occupied ninth and tenth place respectively in the charts.
