Today Capcom announced with a press release that the recently-released Resident Evil 2 remake has shipped over three million units during its first week on the shelves.
As usual, this includes units shipped to retailers physically and digital downloads for the full game.
Over twenty years ago the original Resident Evil 2 sold 4.96 million units during its whole lifetime, and the remake appears to be well on its way to surpass it.
It’ll be interesting to see how much the numbers will have grown by March, which marks the end of the fiscal year.
The game boasts a very positive reception about fans and media, and the “1-shot-demo” managed to achieve 4.7 million downloads.
Incidentally, Resident Evil 7 biohazard shipped six million units cumulatively as of Dec 31, and Capcom expects similar results for the new title.
Resident Evil 2 finally released worldwide for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on Jan. 25.
