It’s safe to say Resident Evil Village has been a bit of a hit. Developer Capcom has just announced that the latest addition to its long-running survival-horror games series has shipped more than four million units globally, which puts it ahead of the Resident Evil 3 remake – and it’s fast catching up with sales for the Resident Evil 2 remake in the same period, too.
In an investor relations press release posted today, Capcom announces that the figure of over four million sales so far includes digital copies as well as physical ones. And, as industry analyst Daniel Ahmad points out on Twitter, this figure has already surpassed those of the Resident Evil 3 remake, which launched in April last year.
As of January this year, RE3 had hit a cumulative 3.6 million sales, as Capcom announced in its Q3 report for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2021. While there doesn’t appear to be a more up-to-date figure available just yet, it’s probably safe to assume this figure hasn’t grown significantly since, given the game’s sales will have slowed since its launch over a year ago.
