Resident Evil 4

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.
