After 24 years of survival horror goodness, Capcom has seemingly made themselves a member of the ‘100 million’ club. Looking at Capcom sales data from March 2020, Resident Evil had topped sales reaching 98 million copies worldwide, as pictured below. (Figured expressed in millions)
At Capcom, we strongly believe that providing innovative sequels to beloved franchises increases recognition of our products, while also increasing customer loyalty.
As always, we will to strive to exceed the expectations of fans by continuing to provide the freshest, most innovative forms of entertainment.
However, with the addition of a press release from Capcom here, they announced that Resident Evil 3 had shipped over 2 million copies in its first five days of release, therefore bringing the total cumulative figure to 100 million units. Capcom went on to say:
This achievement comes on the heels of continued sales growth for Resident Evil 2 (released in January 2019, now over 6.5 million cumulative units shipped), demonstrating Capcom’s success in leveraging its wealth of popular IP in modern iterations.
Capcom remains firmly committed to satisfying the expectations of all stakeholders by leveraging its industry-leading game development capabilities in order to create highly entertaining gameplay experiences.
From all of us at Biohazard Declassified we would like to congratulate Capcom in reaching this historic milestone, and thanking them for their 24 years of dedication to the brand, as well as excitement for future iterations to come.
