The decision of capcom It has been totally successful. Since the Japanese company changed course with Resident Evil 7, the horror franchise has experienced a epoch of splendor. To support an unmitigated success, the remakes of the second and third installments have garnered large numbers.
Specifically, Resident Evil 2 is the title that updates its sales, which already exceed 10 million copies sold all over the world. This data is reached after its launch on January 25, 2019 on PS4, Xbox One and PC, considering both the physical and digital versions.
The last time Capcom offered us sales numbers was on past March 31when the Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield adventure reached 9.6 million units. A new boost came last month with the patch that was released for PS5 and Xbox Series which increased the frame rate. However, the result on PC was not as expected.
Meanwhile, today the new Resident Evil series has been released on Netflix, which completely parks any plot seen in the saga and seeks to create its own path. In turn, a Resident Evil 4 remake is in the works for early 2023.
