According to Capcom, Resident Evil Village Has Sold 10 Million Copies

According to a report by Capcom, Resident Evil Village sold 10 million units within three years.

In a company statement, the Japanese gaming house has praised the horror franchise’s first-person nightmare highly.

Since its release in 2021, the game has received critical acclaim and has had a broad impact on pop culture across many genres.

The title has been a factory for meme content throughout the gaming community, and the DLC content has sparked many rumors of new titles in the same FPS style. The game’s main villain, Lady Alcina Dimitrescu, or Lady D, has also spawned a universe of non-workplace content since her debut.

Resident Evil reaches 10 million unit milestone

The game is a sequel to Resident Evil: Biohazard, which was considered risky as a first-person shooter experience in its early days, but won over critics in 2017 and paved the way for Resident Evil Village.

The game is set in an eerie Eastern European town that is home to a village full of terrified residents under the watchful eye of a conspiracy of sinister entities. Protagonist Ethan Winters, the character at the center of the ordeal on the Baker estate in Biohazard, returns in another tale of horror and hardship.

Village has been a global success story for Capcom, taking home first-place awards at the 2021 Golden Joystick Awards and the Japan Game Awards: 2022.

Like many Japanese gaming giants, Capcom relied on mobile gaming to boost sales of established console titles. The release of Resident Evil Village Gold Edition, which includes additional content and support for Apple users, contributed to these meteoric sales.

Capcom has announced that a wide range of Apple devices can now run all current Resident Evil titles. The publisher also noted that Resident Evil Village reached the 10 million mark faster than any other Resident Evil title.

Are Code Zero and Veronica next for Capcom?

Remakes of established titles are a constant at the biggest game studios. Why create a new title or intellectual property when you can rehash the past?

The plot is there, the characters are already established and have a fan base. Plus, nostalgia is a powerful thing in the minds and wallets of pop culture fans, so Capcom’s next project is a trip back to the early 2000s.

We reported late last month that rumors suggested Code Zero and Veronica were already in development. Capcom hasn’t officially announced the game yet, but the current number of remakes suggests the direction the company is heading.
