Resident Evil 3 Remake Surpasses Impressive Sales Milestone In Just Five Days

The recently released remake shipped more than two million units across all platforms.

6 Comments

Capcom has announced that Resident Evil 3 Remake, which launched on April 3, shipped more than two million copies across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One worldwide. Though the game has only been out for a little over a week, Capcom said the RE3 Remake hit the milestone five days after it released.

Last year's remake, Resident Evil 2, shipped more than 6.5 million copies to date. For comparison, 1998's Resident Evil 2 shipped a little under five million units and 1999's Resident Evil 3: Nemesis shipped 3.5 million units in their lifetime.

Capcom also noted that 50% of RE3 Remake's sales came from digital purchases. These figures bring the RE series' lifetime sales to more than 95 million units as of December 31, 2019, according to the company's report. Physical distribution has been impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, with many companies like Obsidian Entertainment and Square Enix confirming delays in shipping hard copies of The Outer Worlds on Nintendo Switch and Final Fantasy 7 Remake on PlayStation 4.

This news comes not long after Capcom published a survey asking if fans wanted more RE remakes. The survey doesn't disclose which entries the company is considering remaking. It also doesn't explicitly say that Capcom is remaking any RE game at the moment; the company is just gauging interest right now.

In other RE news, Capcom outlined the roadmap for RE3 Remake's asymmetrical multiplayer mode, Resistance. Coming first is Jill Valentine on April 17, followed by an unannounced survivor in May, and something "under construction" in June. Capcom also indicated that more content will come in July and onwards.
