Now Playing: Resident Evil 2 Remake Ships 4 Million Copies - GS News Update

The Resident Evil 2 remake continues to perform well commercially. The game has now shipped 4 million copies globally, Capcom announced in a news release today. This is up from the 3 million copies that the game shipped during its first week.

The increased sales of Resident Evil 2 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC pushed total Resident Evil franchise sales to more than 90 million units since the series debuted in 1996 as of February 26, 2019. This is up from 88 million units back in January.

The 1998 original Resident Evil 2 reached sales of 4.96 million copies to stand as the fourth best-selling Resident Evil game, so the remake is coming up on that milestone.

Resident Evil 2's free DLC, Ghost Survivors, was released on February 15. GameSpot's Resident Evil 2 review called it "a terrifying experience like no other."

"Resident Evil 2 is not only a stellar remake of the original, but it's also simply a strong horror game that delivers anxiety-inducing and grotesque situations, topping some of the series' finest entries," wrote critic Alessandro Fillari. "But above all, the remake is an impressive game for the fact that it goes all-in on the pure survival horror experience, confidently embracing its horrifying tone and rarely letting up until the story's conclusion."
