It was coming and now it’s official. Resident Evil 2 Remake, which was released early this year, finally outgrew its daddy and surpassed the original PlayStation’s Resident Evil 2 sales. According to a press release, Resident Evil 2 Remake sold more than 5 million units on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
The data provided by Capcom shows that original Resident Evil 2 shipped 4.96 million copies since its inception in 1998, but it’s important to keep in mind that the original game was only released for the original PlayStation, while remake can be played on almost every current-generation gaming platform.
Resident Evil 2 Remake is also a bit behind the other games in the series. Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 are now nearing 7.5 million units sold while Resident Evil 7 at the moment shipped 6.8 million game copies. However, all of these games have been out for a while. Resident Evil 2 Remake released last January and still can boost its numbers a lot, especially having in mind the fact that the game is nominated as the Game of the Year in 2019 The Game Awards.
We should also add, that the game is currently selling really well on Eneba – we have an awesome price for it.
Without a doubt, surpassing 5 million units milestone is a sign of great success, so it shouldn’t be surprising that Capcom is already working on Resident Evil 3 remake. We wrote about the official announcement yesterday, so be sure to check that one out if you missed it.
