Capcom updated their platinum titles section, which among other things includes Resident Evil VII sales numbers. And according to their latest update, RE VII passed the 10 million mark. This means that the game became the second Capcom title to sell more than 10 million copies. While Monster Hunter World is still the first.
While Resident Evil VII was quite controversial among hardcore fans of the IP, the strong sales numbers just prove that Capcom was right to switch to the first-person perspective. And the game still sells like hotcakes. Capcom reports that it sold 400k copies this last quarter.
This is bewildering considering that Resident Evil Village sold 300k copies. Similarly, Resident Evil 2 Remake also sold 300k copies. The newer entries into the franchise just cannot catch up to the 2017 smash hit.
