Capcom has shipped three million units of its remake of Resident Evil 2 in the game’s first week on sale.
The Japanese publisher announced the news with a stamp on its website. Capcom believes that the Resident Evil 2 remake is on track to emulate Resident Evil 7, which has so far shipped six million units, in sales terms. Only the largely unloved Resident Evil 5 and 6 have sold more copies.
In addition, Resident Evil 2’s 1-Shot Demo has now been downloaded nearly five million times. These are successful times for Capcom: last year’s Monster Hunter World shipped over 8 million units, and the company is currently readying Devil May Cry 5 for an 8 March 2019 release.
