Notice it specifically counts retail and season passes implying episodic purchases were not included in this count. The true sales count would be rather difficult to disseminate.

So, no more Resident Evil? They said they plan to end series that do not meet 2 million sales.

So it hasn't sold 1 Million yet. I actually waiting for the N3ds version or the WiiU version. :P

You'll be waiting a long time. The fact that they are releasing it on PS Vita next says that Capcom want's to patch up the Sony partnership.

@Maximus2013 - which is baffling since no version of Revelations 1 or 2 has outsold the original on 3DS.

Are they counting also the separetd episodes like if someone bought only 2 episodes thos 2 episode count as 2 units shipped?


Ataraxias (on 10 May 2015)

Read it again. Specifically says Retail and Season Passes. Those 2 formats are only for all the episodes. That implies all of the piecemeal buyers aren't even counted here.

So most of the sales were digital like most people thought, but it still seems to be pretty bad considering it's on 5 platforms. I kind of forgot the game exists i need to get this.

I can't imagine Capcom is happy and proud of these numbers? This a major franchise that should be doing 4 plus million with every entry by now. What happened?


Ataraxias (on 10 May 2015)

This isn't a main entry game. Look up the sales for the first Revelations and you'll see that it's really not that far off. Especially if episodic downloads aren't included.

it's pretty far off if you include all of the ports. I mean this has 5 versions too so those should be included. Of course vgchartz numbers don't include digital either.

The game wasn't that good. I know it's suppose to be a low budget game, but the story was lazy.

It's RE. The stories aren't gonna be that detailed. It's a combination of RE4 and RE6 designs. But with more horror.
