Resident Evil is one of Capcom’s biggest franchises, and easily the most popular survival horror series in the world. We saw the launch of Resident Evil Village just last month, and while the introduction of werewolves and vampires might have caused a portion of fans to think that the series has lost its identity, it’s clear that this series still has a ton of mainstream appeal.
Capcom has just announced that since launch, Resident Evil Village has shipped over 4 million units globally, and this figure includes digital sales as well. Compare this with the sales of its predecessor, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, which has shipped over 9 million units since its launch from a couple years back. Both games have seen a massive amount of success.
Resident Evil Village continues the story of Ethan Winters, and takes place three years after the events of RE7. Ethan must go on a mission to rescue his infant daughter from evil vampires and werewolves in a gothic castle, while unraveling the mystery of why Chris Redfield would put his family in danger like that.
The game is now available on PC and consoles.
