Capcom: Resident Evil 6 successful 'to some degree'

Publisher says record setting shipments of new action game make it somewhat successful; "too early" to make judgement regarding critical response.


Resident Evil 6 did not win praise across the board at launch last month, but the game shipped a Capcom record 4.5 million copies initially. This equals success to "some degree," according to comments from the publisher recently during a question and answer session.

"Resident Evil 6 continues to generate repeat sales in Japan and overseas. Furthermore, initial shipments set a new record for a Capcom title. So this game has been successful to some degree," reads a line from the response.

Regarding the game's critical response, Capcom isn't yet ready to make a judgement.

"We therefore believe it is too early to reach a conclusion about how users view this game. We always listen carefully to the feedback from users and use this information when developing game," the statement reads.
