Resident Evil 7 becomes the first game in the series, shipping 10 million copies

Resident Evil 7: Resident Evil is the first game in the series, with Capcom confirming that it has shipped over 10 million copies.

As announced in Press release, Capcom states that Resident Evil 7 was the first game in the series and set a new milestone for the company by shipping more than 10 million units worldwide. It is worth pointing out that the shipped copy is sent to the retailer, not the sold copy purchased by the player.

According to the studio, the impressive numbers in the game are heavily dependent on the “promotion of digital sales” and “synergies” of the latest series in the series, “Resident Evil Village,” released in May.

The latest news from the studio comes after a series of successes in the series. In 2020, Capcom will be the first biohazard brand in history Sales of over 100 million units worldwide.. That said, it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down. In July, Capcom announced that its quarterly net sales and profits reached record highs in a statement that contributed to the successful release of Resident Evil Village.

Looking forward to the future, Capcom fans will see the studio focus shift to PC software. Haruhiro Tsujimoto, COO of Capcom, said that the success of PC software is “driving global sales” and “PCs will be the second largest after smartphones.” Part of this decision corresponds to Tsujimoto’s increase in digital sales from things like older titles such as Resident Evil 7.

Fans praised Resident Evil 7 for returning to its roots in the series with an emphasis on horror, exploration and atmosphere. IGN reviewed Resident Evil 7 at the time of its release, praising the game’s score of 7.7 / 10 and taking the series in a “bold new direction.”
