Capcom announced Resident Evil Village has shipped over 4.5 million units worldwide. The figure includes digital sales.

The game had previously shipped four million units on May 26 and three million units on May 11. 

As a comparison Resident Evil 7: biohazard took about 10 months to ship 4.1 million units worldwide and has gone on to ship nine million units as of March 31, 2021. 

Here is an overview of the game:

Resident Evil Village is the sequel to Resident Evil 7 biohazard (which has gone on to ship a cumulative nine million units as of March 31, 2021) and features a higher degree of action and even more expansive, highly engaging gameplay. In the game, players take on the role of protagonist Ethan Winters as they delve into a new kind of survival horror set in a mysterious, snowy village.

Lauded for its technical merits, including its stunning, photorealistic visuals and cutting-edge 3D audio, the game also won support from fans for featuring appealing characters grounded in traditional horror and gameplay that expertly balanced elements of action and horror. This resulted in worldwide shipments of the title surpassing four million units.

Resident Evil Village launched for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 7.
