Resident Evil 7 and Dead Rising 4 Sales Projections Revealed

Resident Evil 7 is expected to be the biggest, hitting 4 million in sales.


Capcom has announced how many copies it is projecting that Resident Evil 7, Dead Rising 4, and Monster Hunter XX will sell at launch.

As part of the company's earnings report this week, Capcom projected Resident Evil 7 will be the biggest of the three, selling 4 million units. Dead Rising 4 and Monster Hunter XX are expected to sell 2 million copies each. Note that these are not lifetime sales projections, but only for their initial launch windows, through March 2017. Another thing to note is that the sales projections account for physical and digital copies.
