Capcom really has taken the PlayStation 4 generation by storm. Monster Hunter: World became its best selling video game of all time at 14.9 million units, Resident Evil 2 is officially outselling the PSone original, and now Devil May Cry 5 is the best-selling entry in the Japanese franchise.
The publisher has updated its lengthy list of Platinum Titles which now confirms an overall sales total for the series' fifth mainline entry of 3.1 million units. Devil May Cry 4 is just behind it with 3 million copies on the market while the original PlayStation 2 game boasts of 2.16 million units sold. The DmC: Devil May Cry spin-off does sit between the two at 2.4 million copies, but some die-hard fans don't like to speak of that.
Capcom is primed to continue its hot streak with Resident Evil 3 in April, but then it'll surely be turning its focus to supporting Sony's next-generation PlayStation 5 console. Are you happy to see Devil May Cry 5 take the top-selling spot for the franchise? Slay some demons in the comments below.
Great news. Hopefully enough to green light a sequel.
To celebrate, maybe add Vergil and more costumes as unlocks? Please Capcom?
Wow! I had no idea. I thought the series sold much better than that. It's also quite surprising to see that DmC did ok compared to the rest. Turns out, it wasn't the disaster it was reported to be.
well deserved too as it's awesome
Good game, looked amazing and played really well too. Fair play, hope it warrants a sequel.
Game is fantastic so suits me. How about Virgil as DLC please Capcom?
