Resident Evil 7 has sold over 4 million copies

Capcom was aiming for 4 million sales of Resident Evil 7 earlier this year, and has now officially reached that point.

The company wanted to reach the target much earlier, with 4 million units shipped, but Capcom has announced close to 4.1 million sales of Resident Evil 7 so far. If we compare the sales of Resident Evil 7 against the sale of Resident Evil 6, Capcom was "disappointed" with the 4.8 million units it sold.

 

Capcom expected to sell 4 million copies of RE7 at launch, but it took 12 months to make it there instead. It doesn't mean RE7 was a flop at all, but it rode a successful marketing campaign and enjoyed its own spikes in popularity. I played it for a few hours, but didn't finish it, and enjoyed the time I spent in it. Capcom really changed the world of Resident Evil games, so I'm excited for RE8 if it's in development.
