Resident Evil Village sold 3 million copies in its first four days. In terms of sales successes in the first week, RE3 managed to outperform Remake by a significant margin.
Capcom’s successful game series Resident Evil continues to impress with sales figures. Resident Evil Village, released last Friday, also performed as well as expected. RE Village sold 3 million copies in just four days.
Compared to previous games in the series, for example, re3 Remake, released last year, sold 2 million copies in its first five days. Critically, RE2 Remake, one of the most successful games in the series, sold 3 million copies in five days. Finally, Resident Evil 7 sold 2.5 million copies in five days.
Resident Evil Village’s first-week performance is similar to Resident Evil 2 Remake and Resident Evil 7. Sales of these two games had approached 8 million as of this year. Resident Evil 3 Remake, which failed to deliver on critical expectations, remained at 3.6 million. Resident Evil Village is expected to perform similarly to RE2 Remake and RE7 in this sense and will continue to sell quickly in the future.
Resident Evil Village also managed to break the franchise record on the PC platform. The village reached 106,000 simultaneous players on Steam over the weekend, beating the previous record-holder Resident Evil 2 Remake (74,000 simultaneous players) by a significant margin.
