Resident Evil 7’s new sales reached 7.9 million copies

“Resident Evil 7: Resident Evil” is a survival horror video game developed and published by Capcom. It was released in January 2017 and is available for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 (also supports PlayStation VR headsets), Xbox One, and May 2018. The month is aimed at Nintendo Switch in Japan. The ninth major part of the “Resident Evil” series, “Resident Evil 7” runs counter to the action-oriented “Resident Evil 5” and “Resident Evil 6”, returning to the roots of survival horror of the series of games, focusing on exploration.

The player controls Ethan Winters, who searches for his wife in an abandoned plantation occupied by a cannibal family, solves problems, and fights enemies. This is the first major series of games to use the first-person perspective.

“Resident Evil 7” is the first full-length game using Capcom’s internal RE engine. The development work was led by Koshi Nakanishi, the director of the 2012 Nintendo 3DS game Resident Evil: Revelations. One year before the announcement at the 2016 E3 conference, it was demonstrated as a virtual reality demo called Kitchen. “Resident Evil 7” is considered the return of the series. Critics praised the game’s gameplay, graphics, and design, but criticized the boss battle and the final chapter.

As of June 2020, the game has sold more than 7.9 million copies worldwide. Two downloadable content scenes were released: “Not a Hero” and “Zoe’s End”. The sequel “Resident Evil Village” (Resident Evil Village) is scheduled to be released in 2021.

Resident Evil 7: Capcom’s “Platinum Title” list includes every game in its catalog that has sold more than 1 million copies, allowing us to get a good understanding of the best-selling Capcom games, although the way to “count” each game seems to be different. For “Resident Evil 7”, we assume that the total number includes sales of the “gold” version, which bundles all DLC together because it is not included elsewhere; other games in the series divide its sales into multiple versions.

“Resident Evil 4-6” has sold more than 7 throughout its life cycle, although its sales have spanned multiple releases and console generations. If we get an updated version of Resident Evil 7 on the console in the future, it may change.
