According to a PlayStation Blog post, Resident Evil Village dominated digital PlayStation Store sales on the console. The title was the most downloaded title in May 2021 for both the North American and European regions. Specifically, Resident Evil Village occupied the number one spot for digital sales on the PlayStation 5 in both regions and in Europe for the PlayStation 4. However, Rust Console Edition took top spot in PlayStation 4 sales in North American.

Since its release, Resident Evil Village shipped upwards of 3 million units worldwide. This number was reported on May 11, 2021 in an official press release from Capcom. This number has yet to be updated. However, the series continues to climb Capcom’s Platinum Titles List. Resident Evil 7 now occupies second place, having shipped 9 million units worldwide.

However, it still sits behind Monster Hunter: World, which has sold roughly 17.1 million units worldwide. That being said, this number has yet to be updated from March 31, 2021. This information may change when Capcom next decides to update its list.
