Capcom announced today that Resident Evil 7: biohazard has surpassed the milestone of 3 million units shipped worldwide for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Here’s more from the press release:
Resident Evil 7 is the latest installment, and builds upon the series’ roots of fear, exploration and tense atmosphere. The full game is also available to play via the included optional PlayStation®VR Mode for the PS4 version. Resident Evil 7 is also an Xbox Play Anywhere digital game which allows play on both Xbox One and Windows 10 with shared saves, game add-ons, and achievements. In addition to utilizing the new proprietary RE ENGINE to push hardware specifications to their limits, the game’s system underwent a dramatic shift from its previous third-person camera to a new first-person perspective in order to provide an overwhelming, deeply immersive horror experience. By incorporating broadly scoped innovations and refocusing on horror, the title earned numerous high-scoring reviews from around the globe and garnered attention from fans who also highly praised the game, leading it to exceed three million units shipped. Capcom will continue to expand interest and demand for the title by releasing additional downloadable content, as well as holding in-store PlayStation®VR demos throughout Japan with the aim of further promoting sales.
Furthermore, the company stated that the newest Hollywood film, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, has been performing well worldwide and helped push the film series’ total global box-office to over one billion dollars. This makes the Resident Evil movies the all-time top box office gross of any film series based on a video game to date.
Capcom additionally says they remain “firmly committed to satisfying the expectations of all users by leveraging its industry-leading game development capabilities in order to create highly entertaining gameplay experiences.”
