Devil May Cry 5 sells over two million units


Devil May Cry 5 has passed the two million-unit sales mark in its first two weeks on release.

Developer/publisher Capcom made the announcement in a press release, saying: “Devil May Cry 5 for the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, PlayStation4 system and PC has shipped more than 2 million units globally. One of Capcom’s major brands, the games in this series have cumulatively sold more than 19 million units since the first title was released in 2001.”

That instantly makes it more successful than the franchise’s previous instalment, 2013’s DmC (a franchise-reboot developed by UK studio Ninja Theory), which only managed to shift 1.2 million units.

Capcom also celebrated the milestone on Devil May Cry 5’s twitter feed. The news continues Capcom’s recent hot streak, which has seen Resident Evil 7, Monster Hunter: World and the Resident Evil 2 remake post impressive sales figures. Capcom’s most recent financial results, for the nine months ending December 2018, were correspondingly impressive, showing ordinary income up over 90 per cent year-on-year.
