It will make 10 million quite comfortably then. RE7 should also break the 10 million barrier within the next year.

That'll put RE4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 all above 10 million. The RE2 Remake will likely crawl to 10 million too, although it'll probably take two more years to get there.

That now puts the Resident Evil series narrowly ahead of the Zelda series in sales terms - 114 million to 113.6 million. Ranks 18 and 19 on the all-time best selling video game series.

It's tracking well ahead of Res 7 then, and ahead of Res 2 Remake, which itself is tracking ahead of Res 7.
