I had hoped it would have topped 8mil before the end of 2021. Gonna reach 10mil some time this year I think. It deserves all the sales it can get, it's a great game.

Maybe he meant consistently selling more than previously. Capcom is pretty notorious for a series hitting a high before falling off a cliff.
