Capcom has just announced that Resident Evil 4 Remake, which released on March 23, has just surpassed five million sales. It’s not over yet though – there are plans in the works to keep that train rolling, starting with the next update that will introduce Resident Evil 4 VR mode to the game.
Resident Evil 4 Remake took just two days to sell three million copies, and then two weeks to sell four million. After the inevitable drop in sales, it has taken another three months for the title to register five million total sales, but that’s the way it is with new releases.
we’re not done yet
In the press release released today by Capcom, it was explained that the continued success of Resident Evil 4 Remake is the result of “a new gameplay experience” and “cutting-edge graphics technology.” It was also noted that the highly positive ‘customer’ reception propelled the game’s sales record to epic proportions and that the release of later expansions such as The Mercenaries mode only served to increase the platform’s presence.
It also helped that, on PC at least, several high-profile mods brought more fun to fans willing to play with their game. For example, an entertaining mod that provided a new perspective on the game was the First-Person Mod, which was released shortly after the game was released.
To conclude the press release, Capcom praised the future of Resident Evil 4 Remake, talking about the upcoming release of Resident Evil 4 VR Mode. He promised that he was “firmly committed to meeting the expectations of all stakeholders by leveraging his industry-leading game development capabilities to create a highly entertaining gaming experience.”
All good then!
