Capcom has issued another sales update for the excellent Resident Evil Village as part of an earnings call, sharing that the horror title has now shipped more than five million copies worldwide. It's the latest statistic after the Japanese publisher announced it had already shipped three million units just days after release, meaning a further two million copies have been bought in the five months since.
A press release was issued to share the news, which noted that Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is currently sitting at double the number of units shipped — "over 10 million" to be precise. However, Resident Evil Village is currently selling at a faster rate so the game may yet outrank Ethan Winters' original trip to Louisiana at some point in the future.
Don't forget there's more to come from Resident Evil Village as Capcom has confirmed a piece of DLC is currently in development for the title, and then there's the oft-forgotten Resident Evil Re:Verse multiplayer offering that was supposed to be packaged in with Village for free. Whether that's still the case or Capcom simply opts for a free-to-play release for everyone remains to be seen. Either way, it's now slated to come out next year for PlayStation 4.

A superb game. Got it on Halloween discount on the PS Store.
Finished it in a few days. One of my favs this year.
Shipped? So how many are in gamer's hand and how many still with the retailer, do we know?
I'm not one of them. I'm far too much of a chicken to play RE games. I don't like being scared, it's scary.
Aren’t.most games digital anyway? Guess it will sell well b4 2021 end especially if it gets new discount in xmas or cyber Monday
I'm still planning to get this at some point soon.
@dimi The five million stat includes digital sales.
Just an amazing game. I absolutely loved it! Well deserved Capcom! If village is going to be any indication of what the Resident Evil 4 remake is going to look like man we're going to be in for one hell of an awesome ride!
@LiamCroft thats really good ! I've watched some else play the game and that's about the best I can do 😊
I'm so happy to see Capcom doing so well these days. I was really worried the company would either close or get bought out for a while there! They have been innovative for the industry it would have been really sad to see them go. Congrats Capcom!
Great, Fantastic game. One of the best I have played this year. A must play.
And in other great sale news. Ember Lab already made their money back on Kena! great job everyone 😀
I mean, I still wouldn’t pay full price for it as I paid $38 inc. del. from eBay preowned when the cheapest price for it at any retailer here (Australia) was $79 new but I was pleasantly surprised in someways. It wasn’t the longest but it didn’t feel short, spesh if you’re like me and are keen to look around. Some aspects of it were a little B grade but the atmosphere, graphics and the overall vibe of it were first class. I’d give it an 8/10 which is extremely high for me as I mark harshly. First game since the revelations games (plus RE 1,2,3) I’ve loved of theirs
It deserves even more sales, fantastic game on every level.
Really enjoyed RE Village but it was way too short. Especially on replays when you know what you need to do and where to go. It would have benefited massively from a few more hours gameplay in certain areas.
People gave RE3 Remake a hard time because it was short but RE Village wasn’t much better and was praised. I thought RE3 Remake was the better game of the two but they were both very good.
i beat this game on every difficulty and beat village of shadows under 3 hour run, best resident evil game for gameplay, but not the best for storywise.
That’s sounds about right because it’s half the game 7 is 🤣
Don’t @ me it was a joke
@fR_eeBritney I disagree. The games length was perfect. It is also subjective too because people play differently. Took me almost 12 hours to beat Village.
These games don’t need to overstay their welcome. It’s what makes them great. They’re quality, focused games.
Congrats to capcom, can't wait for re4 remake. I hope it's more like re2 remake rather than re3 remake.
half of resident evil village was good then from Heisenberg onwards it was awful like resident evil 6 type awful
I enjoyed the game, but didn't love it like RE7. The story and its pacing was all over the place compare to RE7. The best section of the game was the one that feel-look like a PT knockoff.
My favourite Resident Evil 😁
This game was a surprise hit for me this year. I adored Resi7 and I expected it couldn't be bested but Village offered me most of what I love about 7 (minus some of the constant terror😔) plus some of that classic Resident Evil OTT, Japanese weirdness - which of course we all love.
The Villains were fantastic. My playthrough was fairly short (still longer than 7) but the environments were detailed and the story well-paced, leaving me hungry for more. I seriously hope we get news of the DLC soon. They should use Far Cry 6's template of doing a DLC release focussed on each of the 4 villains. I'd be in heaven!💕
I plan to purchase this soon.
