Resident Evil Village sells over 3 million copies globally!
Capcom today announced that Resident Evil Village, released on May 7th for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC, has sold over 3 million copies worldwide.
The Resident Evil franchise started in 1996 and the series has sold more than 100 million units since its debut overall. The continuous love and support from the fan base allowed this 25 years old game series to become one, if not the most important Capcom's franchise.
Resident Evil Village, the eighth main chapter of the series, is the direct sequel of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (which sold over 8.5 million copies as of December 31st). In this expanded, highly engaging, survival horror game, the main character will still be Ethan Winters, the protagonist of the 7th, in a new and mysterious village in Europe.
The reasons for the game's success are various; the RE ENGINE, owned by Capcom, delivers stunning visuals and amazing audio and on next-gen consoles the results are impressive, almost reaching photo-realism; the hype generated by the demo sessions resulted in a great number of preorders and high expectations by a lot of gamers, who bought the game immediately after its release.
Conscious of the success of its franchise, the company is planning new initiatives to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the series including the launch of the first original CG animated series, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkeness, which will be globally distributed on Netflix. Capcom declared that they are committed in satisfying all fans providing great experiences for them.
