Resident Evil 3 Remake Sales Exceed 5 Million Copies Worldwide

Resident Evil 3 Remake Sales

Capcom announced sales for the Resident Evil 3 remake have surpassed 5 million copies worldwide. The sales figure was announced through the official Japanese Resident Evil Twitter account. The developer also thanked those who have continued to support the Resident Evil series. In April 2020, Capcom revealed that worldwide sales for the Resident Evil 3 remake had surpassed 2 million copies just five days after its release. It appears as though the remake continues to sell, albeit far slower than other recent entries in the series.

That said, the remake has well surpassed the amount of total copies shipped for the original release of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. Resident Evil 3: Nemesis sold roughly 3.5 million units during its lifetime. However, the Resident Evil series has recently seen a resurgence. For example, Resident Evil 7 has sold over 10 million units worldwide since its January 2017 release. The most recent entry, Resident Evil Village, has sold approximately 5.7 million units as of February 2022.

Capcom has plans to release DLC for Resident Evil Village. While the company announced Resident Evil Village DLC was in development in June 2021, information regarding the potential DLC content has been scarce. However, in January 2022 it revealed the DLC would arrive sometime within the year.

Resident Evil 3 is available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
