You can’t blame Capcom for having high expectations – it’s just a shame that the publisher can’t seem to achieve them. After shipping one million copies of DmC: Devil May Cry across multiple platforms in January, the company has decided to slash its overall sales estimates for the reboot. It now expects the release to shift 1.2 million copies, as opposed to the two million originally predicted.

The figures will come as a disappointment for the Japanese giant, especially when Devil May Cry 4 shipped two million units in its first two weeks available. Sales were also way below expectations for Resident Evil 6, which had shipped 4.8 million units as of the end of January. The firm expected the title to be pushing 7 million units by 31st March. Yeah, good luck with that.
