Capcom included the Resident Evil 4 remake in its updated list of Platinum Titles. This is because the game sold more than a million copies and is considered to be a major hit. According to Capcom, the Resident Evil 4 remake is now the company’s 24th best-selling game with 3.7 million units sold. However, while this is the figure quoted on the Platinum Titles list, Capcom previously announced that sales have surpassed 4 million. Currently, it sits behind the remaster of Resident Evil 0 and ahead of the original Resident Evil 3.
It’s not surprising that Resident Evil 4’s remake is among the Platinum Titles, as the top 10 contains six other games from the series. These include the remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3, alongside Resident Evil 5, 6, 7 and Village. However, the top seller overall is Monster Hunter: World with 18.8 million units sold. Monster Hunter: Rise is in second place with 12.7 million units.
The Resident Evil 4 remake was recently considered to be a major factor in Capcom’s recent successes. Capcom mentioned it by name in their most recent financial reports alongside Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak as a contributor to their record profits.
Resident Evil 4 is available now for the PS4, PS5, PC and Xbox Series X/S.
