Resident Evil Village With Exceptional Sales; Capcom Plans for the Future

Capcom shared the sales results of Resident Evil: Village. Within a few days from the launch the game found as many as 3 million buyers.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  1. Capcom presented sales results of Resident Evil: Village;
  2. Since its release on May 7, the game has sold 3 million copies, which is a great result;
  3. Capcom is planning to release an online installment of the series and a series on Netflix in the near future.

Resident Evil Village enjoys an enduring appeal. Positively received by both players and reviewers, the title reached a record high on Steam on the day of its release. Today, Capcom boasted the sales results of the latest Resident Evil. Since its release on May 7, the game has been purchased in 3 million copies.. For comparison, in a similar period the previous installment of the series, subtitled Biohazard, reached the result of 2.5 million copies sold. From the report we can learn that all installments of the Resident Evil series have sold 100 million copies in total. Quoting Capcom's documents:

"Representing the eighth main entry in the series, the new Resident Evil Village is the sequel to Resident Evil 7 biohazard (which has gone on to ship a cumulative 8.5 million units as of December 31, 2020) and features a higher degree of action and even more expansive, highly-engaging gameplay. In the game, players take on the role of protagonist Ethan Winters as they delve into a new kind of survival horror set in a mysterious, icy village. Built with Capcom's proprietary RE ENGINE, the game maximizes the potential of next-generation devices to deliver stunning, photorealistic visuals while utilizing cutting-edge audio technology. This, along with praise for the deeply immersive experience from fans following the game's demo, resulted in worldwide shipments of the title surpassing 3 million units."

Capcom also hosts a stats website, through which we can learn various tidbits, such as the fact that all players have spent a total of more than 1500 years (!) in the game, walked a distance of over 37 million kilometers and scored a total of 209 million kills.

Returning to Capcom's report, we can cite the developers' announcements, who are planning, among other things, the release of the online game Resident Evil Re:Verse or an animated series Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness on Netflix for the game's 25th anniversary. It would be another high-profile animated series based on the game to land on the popular platform after DOTA: Dragon's Blood.
