Resident Evil 7: Biohazard has turn out to be the first recreation in the collection to ship over ten million copies, Capcom confirms.
As introduced in a press release, Capcom says that Resident Evil 7 has set new milestones for the firm because it turns into the first recreation in the collection to ship over ten million items globally. It’s value mentioning that shipped copies are these despatched to retailers, as opposed to offered copies, which have been purchased by gamers.
According to the studio, the recreation’s spectacular figures have largely been down to the “promotion of digital gross sales” and “synergies” with the collection’ newest installment, Resident Evil: Village, which launched in May.
The newest information from the studio comes after a string of successes for the collection. In 2020, the Resident Evil model set new data for Capcom after it turned the first in its historical past to exceed 100 million units sold worldwide. That being stated, it would not appear like slowing down both. Capcom introduced in July that its quarterly web gross sales and earnings had reached record-high levels in a press release that contributed a part of that success to the launch of Resident Evil: Village.
Looking ahead to the future, Capcom followers are probably to see the studio’s focus shift toward PC software. Capcom’s COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto shared that the success of its PC software program has been “driving world gross sales” and that he thinks “PCs might be the subsequent large factor after smartphones.” Part of this choice, revealed Tsujimoto, is in response to a rise in digital gross sales from the likes of older titles comparable to Resident Evil 7.
Resident Evil 7’s return to the collection’ roots with an emphasis on horror, exploration, and environment was extensively praised by followers. IGN reviewed Resident Evil 7 upon launch scoring the recreation a 7.7/10 and commending it for taking the collection in a “daring new path”.
