Resident Evil 7 Still Selling Strong, Even For VR

The numbers are impressive!

Resident Evil 7, while not universally loved, can hardly be called a failure.

Capcom recently released a sales report on the installment, and those sales near 7 million, falling in at 6.8 mil. That’s not very shy of RE6‘s 7.4 million lifetime sales, the number to beat.

What’s especially interesting is that about 16 percent of those players (around 1 million and some change) actually play the game in VR.

While the traditional medium still reigns supreme, I can personally vouch for the truly amazing VR experience that 7 presents. Its grimy, brutal gameplay pair with it well, making it a must-try.

While 2 doesn’t include VR support (without mods), and 3 is unlikely to as well, we have to look forward to seeing if Capcom will revisit virtual reality someday.

Perhaps Resident Evil 8?
