Resident Evil 7 has been well received by fans, so well that Capcom proudly revealed that the game has shipped 2.5 million units during its first week.
Furthermore, they revealed that the series has now sold over 75 million units worldwide to date, making it one of the most successful gaming franchises ever (and certainly the most successful horror franchise).
We’ll have to see how well Resident Evil 7 stacks up against the previous games in the series. There’s quite a way to go to reach the record, which is 7.1 million units sold, held by Resident Evil 5.
According to their financial earnings report, they expect the game to sell 4 million units by the end of March.
