I'd say they've become a very respectable studio since RE7 was released. In spite of the last MvC game.

Glad to see it, especially remembering the gloom and doom about Capcom just a few years ago.

Then again they have included microtransactions in DMC5 and sold cheats for RE2 Remake. In my view they haven't gotten any better. I expect RE3 Remake to be monetised up the kazoo with the help of the multiplayer.

Am really kinda stunned at these numbers. I honestly thought the street fighter series as a whole would have sold more than the resident evil series considering age range, either way congrats n am glad they all sold amazing n I can’t wait for 3 now all I need now is code Veronica as for some reason I couldn’t finish it as Dreamcast packed up n I never got it on the Xbox
