Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, one of the better games of the year in this author’s humble opinion, has ghosted past its sales target – albeit several months late. Capcom had expected the title to sell four million units by 31st March, but according to the survival horror’s website, that accolade has only just been achieved.
While all of this sounds pretty pathetic on paper, it actually makes it the fourth best-selling Resident Evil game of all time – and it still has a re-issue and a couple of DLC packs left to release. Still, with both Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 being the brand’s best ever performers, it’ll be interesting to see which direction the next instalment in the scary series adopts.
We’re already having nightmares over a return to the all-out action of old.
