COTEKNO.COM – Despite being a new title, it seems that Resident Evil Village sales immediately shot up. At the end of last May, Capcom announced that sales of Resident Evil Village had surpassed 4 million copies worldwide.
This makes Resident Evil Village the fastest-selling game series of the previous three titles in the series. On May 11, the title of the latest horror game was announced that it has sold 3 million copies worldwide.
The figure was engraved only four days after it was launched. Now at the end of May announcement, the game has sold 4 million copies.
VGC noted that the game sold faster than the previous three entries; Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (3.5 million copies in nine weeks), Resident Evil 2 (2019) (four million in a month), and Resident Evil 3 (2020) (2.7 million over three months).
Resident Evil 6 did sell 4.5 million copies on its first day, although it later received various kinds of criticism from fans.
Reporting from NicheGamer, Capcom has stated that they are “firmly committed to meeting the expectations of all stakeholders by leveraging industry-leading game development capabilities”.
Capcom has also announced that Resident Evil 7: Biohazard has sold up to 9 million copies as of March 31, 2021. That makes it Capcom’s second best-selling title and best-selling Resident Evil game title.
Resident Evil 4 alone has sold 10.7 million copies. But given that Capcom considers each Resident Evil 4 entry to be a separate game, it isn’t included on the list.
At the same time, they also announced that Monster Hunter: World sold 17.1 million units and the Iceborne expansion reached 7.7 million copies. For information, Resident Evil Village was released on May 7, 2021 and immediately caught the attention of fans.
Resident Evil Village is set three years after the events of Resident Evil 7. The returning protagonist Ethan Winters has lived with his wife Mia, as well as his beautiful daughter, Rosemary.
Chris Redfield and his men suddenly appear and kill Ethan Winters’ wife and kidnap their daughter. Ethan must cross the village to save Rosemary. Not only the plot, but Lady Dimitrescu’s sexy vampire character with a very tall body also attracts attention.
In fact, some PC game stores are known to use large cartons to display Lady Dimitrescu as a promotional event before the launch of Resident Evil Village. The game is available on multiple platforms including Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC via Steam and Stadia.
