Awesome news for Capcom and some of their fan favorite franchises.

While I did feel that RE8 took a step back from the heightened tension and feel of the franchise (Re7 felt like the RE of the old days like RE1,2,3 etc... while RE8 felt more like RE4.) it was still an absolute blast to play and one of my picks for 2021 GOTY.

Hopefully Capcom reigns back some of the elements that make it fall more in line with RE4 for the next installment as I feel we are currently walking that tight rope of falling into the RE5/6 trap which funny enough ultimately lead to a retracement back to the roots of the franchise in RE7.

That aside, these sales figures are strong indicators of growth for the franchise and should give fans confidence that new entries are on their way.
