Resident Evil is one of the most popular franchises in gaming, and that is reflected in its latest total sales numbers. The horror series from Capcom has now topped 103 million sales worldwide, with the latest entry, Resident Evil 3, making up 2.7 million of that figure. That's not quite as high as previous entries during the same time frame, with recent examples being Resident Evil 7: Biohazard and Resident Evil 2, but it's still a statistic worth sharing as the series goes from strength to strength.
The fight for the honour of being the best-selling Resident Evil game is closer than ever at the moment as Resident Evil 5, Resident Evil 6, and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard all find themselves separated by just 100,000 units. PS4 remake Resident Evil 2 is just behind on 6.6 million units, the original PSone game boasts of 4.96 million copies out in the wild, and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is on 3.5 million units. Collectively, these entries now add up to more than 100 million copies sold across the globe. We're sure PlayStation 5 game Resident Evil Village will help the series on its way to the next milestone too.
There's yet more good news for Capcom in its latest quarterly fiscal report though. Monster Hunter: World has now surpassed 16 million units, while Monster Hunter World: Iceborne comes in at 5.8 million. Meanwhile, the Devil May Cry franchise has sold 22 million copies to date and Dead Rising is on 14 million. That's pretty good going, Capcom.

I purchased Resi 0 because of a Push Square review.....Great game to the collection of 1 2 4 and 7 which would otherwise of been missed I enjoy the ability to swap character and the replayability.
To celebrate this success, Capcom are releasing Dragon's Dogma 2.
....then I woke up.
Resi 3 Nemesis was the resi ever. Change my mind.
Good on them! I'd never really played a Resi game until recently I decided to try out new series and genres; I've neve liked anything horror and tend to hate zombies, but I found Revelations 2 for less than 10€ and bit the bullet.
It's a good game, I really liked it!
I'll probably try to catch up with more games in the series now!
A great series with Resident Evil 2 remake being the best for me and 7 is great too
Still playing resident evil 4 on my ps4 pro.still a amazing game.the graphics still looks good.word up son
I only bought VII but haven't given it a try yet.
No Resi 4 sales? Considering how many platforms its been released on I thought it would be the biggest seller.
One of my favorite video game franchises ever. Long may this success continue.
@Number09 RE5 is an excellent game too don’t forget it!
@Rob3008 yeah decent point. Sales don’t always line up with quality though. RE6 has sold millions of copies and it’s the worst main line entry in my opinion.
@playstation1995 playing 4 and 5 on current consoles is still very possible - the aiming controls take some getting used to, that’s it.
@Alphapatriot1 same here man... I'm a big Resi fan and all I hope is that Resi 8 is not tooo far from getting released... hoping for early 2021
@Arnna I might grab it in a sale it does look like its worth a punt.
@Wavey84 you funny
Capcom please remake Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City with a OFF Line 4 co-op to be allowed to play OFF Line I will never buy none of your new worst disaster of Resident Evil 2 or RE3 re7 or Re8 village games .
Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City only had good chapters and Umbrella mercenaries players why can't Capcom let us Create a male and female in a new create umbrella security mercenaries mode.
Bring tons of weapons and outfits attire and gear masks of U.S.S. and have create big lists of name codes and abilities and movesets and fire power when using grenades Magnum two handed saw off shotguns.
Outbreak Chronicles mode with gun zapper solo and multiplayer would be like orginal RE3 1999 mercenaries mode but in different parts.
Operation campaign main mode when playing OFF Line is more alot if fun Solo and join 4 co-op splits screen 1 player can play as Hunk and allow the player to switch off towards my 3 A.I teammates if they are ambushed by normal and bring back Crimson head Zombies pale head Zombies are awful I don't want them in this horrible they belong in Re2 and RE3.
Multiplayer 4 co-op when create all teams in OFF Line main game is more important to survivor a separated outbreak when fighting virus creatures and zombies in different parts of City in 4 split screen angle we can find secret hidden puzzles hidden powerful weapons unlock new outfit attires and hidden infinite Rocket launcher from orginal 1999 RE3 nemesis from PlayStation 1.
Capcom this is big huge deal give real gamers a chest case or box chest with Umbrella mercenaries bundles to me with free DLC bonuses and buy the zapper guns separate it's still can be worth $60 instead rushing everything we need a better longer game to enjoy with OFF Line game play no more online multiplayer online is junk.
