It's just 160k away from passing Resident Evil 2 to become the 3rd bestselling Resident Evil game of all-time and top 5 for Capcom overall.

Thats valid. I mostly meant people who stated that sales of & are low and it bombed. I cant wait for RE2R either :-D

People that are saying it's not really RE - well it's more Resident Evil than RE4 was!

Good sales, but I dont know if it is enought for a triple A game that costed probably a lot. I hope it is and we get a RE8 in the future.

As far as I remember the development budget was under 5 and 6, so it wasnt that expensive all things considered. Also, considering Capcom's track record they arent known to overblow their investment as much as Square does.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure they said it was made for a fairly low budget, which makes sense to me considering it's not a very big game. Should easily be profitable even though it sold less than 5 and 6 did.

Thanks guys, good information! Btw I think the costs of development of triple A games nowadays are surreal and not sustainable in the long run. Good to know some developers are realising it.

Good performance for this new take on resident evil

Wasn't RE6 considered a disappointment when it "only" sold 5 million? Good to see they have their budgets and priorities straight so these amazing sales figures can actually be celebrated.

I really hope 8 is a proper RE game and not a sequel to this. This game should have been a new IP

Outlast 3 did pretty well for itself.
