Capcom has announced that Resident Evil 3 shipped 2 million units after just five days of release.
Announced in a new press release, Capcom has revealed that Resident Evil 3 has shipped 2 million units in after being released for only 5 days. This news does not come as much of a shock for both Capcom and fans as the 2019’s Resident Evil 2 Remake currently shipped over 6.5 million units. Resident Evil 3’s sales continue to pull in a large margin of numbers and only time will tell if it will surpass Resident Evil 2’s sales.
What makes this news a bit more impressive, the original Resident Evil 3: Nemesis went on to ship 3.5 million units over its life span. With that being said, the remake is definitely crawling towards that number and most-likely will surpass its short time.
In related news, a new report suggests that Resident Evil 4 will be receiving the same remake treatment. According to the new report, the game has officially begun development after being planned for nearly two years. The remake has the blessing of original game director Shinji Mikami, which is always a comforting thing to hear when talking about remakes. Perhaps with the big numbers, the studios are pulling in with these remakes, Resident Evil 4 Remake doesn’t seem too unlikely after all.
