Earlier this year, Capcom stated that it expected to sell 4 million copies of Resident Evil 7 over its first couple of months on the market. However, the publisher's now thinking that the game may actually shift that many copies on day one alone.
EMEA marketing director Antoine Molant tells MCV that the company would "love to sell 4 million on day one globally". He continues: "Looking at what we see in the pre-orders and trends these days, we're pretty confident we are going to get there." Indeed, Molant seems to have real faith in the title's pre-orders, mentioning that "they're very good" when asked for further comment. The game's due out next month, on the 24th January.
Selling 4 million copies at launch would seem like a pretty impressive feat if Resident Evil 7 can pull it off - especially given the series' fall from grace in recent years. Do you think that it can manage? Survive in the comments section below.
