Forums - Sales Discussion - Resident Evil 2 Remake Ships 3 Million Units in 1 Week

Capcom announced it has shipped three million units of the remake of Resident Evil 2 in its first week! If the success continues, Capcom will produce a Resident Evil 3 remake on consoles :)

The original version of the game released in 1998 and has sold 4.96 million units. The franchise itself has now sold over 88 million units worldwide. Great News for us = )



The best summer of all time, for all GAMER:
"The Last of Us 2" in June, "Ghost of Tsushima" in July !!
2020-Game of the Year, currently: Persona 5 Royal, FF7 Remake

RE7 it was 2.5 million in its first week.



It is crazy for a remake to sell like 2/3 of the original total but in the first week.

Happy to hear it's doing well.
This was a highly requested game, so hopefully people turn out and keep buying it.

I will pick it up in a few weeks. I just wanted to prioritize Kingdom Hearts III.



Holy megaton moly. Not only is it doing so good for a remake but Capgods are well and truly back in business. I'd say the majority of those were on ps4 too. 74% share in the UK between ps4 and xbox. Imagine WW.



Sweet. Now bring on 0, 1, 3 and Code Veronica in this style



great to hear, so maybe capcom will make other remakes as well
