  • Resident Evil 2 Remake’s Sales Update



Capcom recently updated its platinum titles list. The list shows that Resident Evil 2‘s remake is closing in on the original’s lifetime sales.
The 2019 game has sold 4.7 million units as of September 30th. The 1998 release sold a total of 4.96 million units. While it’s worth noting that the original only released on the PlayStation whereas the remake is a multi-platform title, selling nearly five million units in eight months is still quite a feat for Capcom. And with the holiday season coming up, we expect this figure to rise significantly by the time the remake celebrates its one-year anniversary.

Capcom also revealed that Monster Hunter: World‘s Iceborne expansion sold 2.8 million copies in less than a month. This doesn’t come as a surprise considering the base game sits at a whopping 14.1 million units sold since its release in January 2018 and Success is inevitable indeed. Other Capcom franchise that made it to one-million sales milestone this year includes Mega Man 11, Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Edition, and Okami HD.
Devil May Cry V, which released in March this year, is trailing behind the developer’s other major releases with 2.7 million copies sold as of September 30th.
