Capcom has announced that the Resident Evil 4 remake sales have hit over three million units sold in just the first two days of availability!
To date, the cumulative shipments of the games in the franchise has now exceeded over 135 million units since the series debuted back in 1996. No breakdown was given by Capcom on which platform got the most sales, but seeing as Sony has the game for sale on both PS4 and PS5, we suspect that’s where the majority of the players are.
From the press release:
Resident Evil 4 is a remake of the original 2005 title. In addition to reworking the story and modernizing the game feel, the 2023 release will provide both fans of the series and newcomers alike with a fresh gameplay experience, featuring highly immersive visuals powered by the cutting-edge graphics technology of Capcom’s proprietary RE ENGINE. Along with securing high scores on online review sites, the title garnered praise and attention following the release of the Chainsaw Demo, in which players could enjoy the opening of the game, resulting in worldwide sales of the title surpassing 3 million units in the first two days after the game’s release.
We’re not surprised by this, as the Resident Evil franchise has quite the staying power when it comes to mindshare and sales.
