Capcom has updated its list of “platinum gamesare all of the company’s games that have sold over a million copies – and provided an update on the sales of said titles. It’s no surprise that the Resident Evil game series continues to be a solid seller for the Japanese company, with the latest installments seeing significant increases in their lifetime sales figures.
Resident Evil 7, for example, remains at the top of the list for the series as a whole. As of June 30, 11 million copies have been sold, up from 10.8 million at the end of the previous quarter. The newest installment in the series, Resident Evil Village, has currently sold 6.4 million units, up from the previously reported 6.1 million. With Winters’ Expansion coming out later this year, sales should pick up.
Meanwhile, the Resident Evil 3 remake sold 5.4 million units, selling 200,000 units in a three-month period. Finally, on the Platinum Titles page, the Resident Evil 2 remake has sold 9.8 million units, but as Capcom recently announced, the game has sold 10 million units worldwide.
In March 2023, Resident Evil 4 remake will be released. It will be interesting to see where it takes place in this list.
