Resident Evil 7 shipped 3.5 million copies from its January launch to the end of March 2017 and it aims to reach 10 million cumulative lifetime unit sales.

According to an article on, Resident Evil 7 fell short of its initial sales forecast which was 4 million copies, but Capcom claims its doing well.

In a post-earning Q&A on Capcom’s Investor Relations site, the company said, “The lifecycle for games is growing longer, driven by ongoing digital sales; as a result, Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6 have each sold more than 7.5 to 10 million units cumulatively (including catalog and re-release sales). As such, we will work to achieve 10 million cumulative lifetime unit sales for Resident Evil 7 as well.”
