Capcom is pulling no punches with the latest game in the Resident Evil series as the company has revealed that Village in just three days has gone on and shipped over three million copies and digital sales. It is easily one of the best titles to date in the 25-year old franchise, so this is well deserved by the teams working on Village.
Comparably, Resident Evil Village has surpassed the 2017 direct sequel, Resident Evil VII, which sold over 2.5 million copies and is on par with Resident Evil 2, which sold 3 million in its first week. With Village, the Resident Evil franchise has now surpassed over 100 million units sold worldwide and that itself is no small feat.
Showing no signs of slowing down, fans of the series still have Resident Evil Re: Verse to look forward to later this summer and Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness on Netflix. The game will be provided free to players who purchase Resident Evil Village. In September, the Resident Evil movie is coming to theatres and will be a reboot for the series.
Capcom is “firmly committed” to creating highly entertaining gameplay experiences but let’s leave poor Ethan Winters alone because his hands have been through enough.
