Today Capcom announced with a press release that the recently-released Resident Evil 2 remake has shipped over four million units globally since its release.
As usual for this kind of figures, the number includes units shipped to retailers physically and digital downloads for the full game as of yesterday, Feb. 26.
Over twenty years ago the original Resident Evil 2 sold 4.96 million units during its whole lifetime, and this one took only one week to reach three million units. With four million copies shipped under its belt, it appears to be well on its way to surpass its predecessor.
It’ll be interesting to see how much the numbers will have grown by March, which marks the end of the fiscal year. At that point Capcom is likely to provide another update.
Incidentally, Resident Evil 7 biohazard shipped six million units cumulatively as of Dec. 31, and Capcom has mentioned that it expects similar results for the new title.
Resident Evil 2 finally released worldwide for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on Jan. 25.
