Capcom just recently launched their remake of one of the most famous titles in the horror gaming genre, Resident Evil 2. The title has seen quite a high level of success, but how much exactly?

Resident Evil 2 sold 1 million copies each day for 3 days 01

Capcom, the developer and publisher for the title have revealed the sales statistics for the remastered game and according to their announcement Resident Evil 2 Remake managed to sell 1 million copies each day for three days. The official statement from Capcom reads as follows; "Resident Evil 2 released on January 25th, 2019 - Achieved more than 3 million units sold in first week (as of January 298th, 2019)".

While the Resident Evil 2 Remake may not equate the immense popularity and sales of Capcom's other big name titles such as 'Monster Hunter: World', the horror classic still has managed to make for a success in Capcom's books. Especially considering that Resident Evil 2 is a remake of an older game, a horror title, and was released just after the Christmas period. All of these reasons I just mentioned would usually defer gamers from picking up a copy, but it seems that Resident Evil 2 is an exception. Resident Evil 2 is currently available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

For more news about Resident Evil, Capcom has said that if fans want a remake of Resident Evil 3 then fans will have to make that known to the developer, more on that here. Resident Evil 2 recently managed to take the 6th spot on Steam 'most-played game', check that out here. There is also a Resident Evil T.V show in the works from Netflix, if you would like to find out more about that visit this article here.
