Recently, the company shared with us the sales figures for the game within the first 48 hours of launch, as the game managed to sell 3 million copies. But today, Capcom returns to share with us the game’s sales during the first two weeks of release, which seem to be growing rapidly.
according to an Official Statement, Resident Evil 4 has sold more than 4 million copies since its release two weeks ago.
These numbers herald that we are facing a new achievement that Capcom is preparing to achieve by re-releasing its previous classic titles. It seems that the matter is achieving success that exceeds the company’s expectations, especially with the fourth part, which began to break all records set by its previous titles.
Comparison of Resident Evil 4 Remake sales with the previous parts of the series
- Resident Evil Village sold 3 million in 5 days
- Resident Evil 3 remake sold 2 million in 5 days
- Resident Evil 2 remake sold 3 million in 7 days
- Resident Evil 4 Remake sold 3 million in 2 days
With this success, Capcom remains tight-lipped about what next step it will take with the series. We do not know if we will be on a date with another remake like the Code Veronica part, or perhaps a continuation of the main series through the ninth part, which is rumored to have been under development for a while.
Today, Capcom released the new “Mercenaries” game mode, which offers a survival experience by choosing any of the new or old series characters, facing hordes of enemies, and eliminating the largest number of them before time runs out or you are destroyed.
The new game mode is now available to everyone who owns the basic version of the game, as it can be downloaded as an additional update for free.
