Capcom has released its financial results for the quarter ending March 31, 2021 and has updated the sales figures for a number of its franchises. 

The Resident Evil series has sold over 110 million units, which is up from 107 million sold in December 2020. It should be noted the figure does not include Resident Evil Village, which launched in May. The extra three million units sold in the first quarter of 2021 were driven by strong sales of the remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3 and Resident Evil VII.

Other Capcom franchise sales figures include Monster Hunter at over 72 million units sold, Street Fighter at 46 million units sold, Mega Man at 36 million units sold, Devil May Cry at 23 million units sold, and Dead Rising at over 14 million units sold.

To also be fair Resident Evil has gotten entries 5-8, whereas GTA is still stuck on 5

Though if I'm honest, I feel like the games are so different to where the comparison doesn't even matter in the first place
