Resident Evil 2 PS5 PS4 PlayStation

The remake of Resident Evil 2 has smashed another sales milestone, with an impressive 10 million units sold across all platforms, since its initial release back in 2019. The PS5 version of the game launched just last month on 13 June, and sales from current-gen platforms pushed the title over the line.

To put that in perspective, the Resident Evil 2 remake is now in the same territory as the original Resident Evil 4, perhaps the most beloved title in the series, which has the benefit of having been on the market since 2005.

The best-selling title in the series remains Resident Evil 5, which sits somewhere north of 13 million units sold.

The remade Resident Evil 2 set a new benchmark for remakes in the industry, with its slick visuals and enhanced gameplay. The reimagined Mr X remains one of the most terrifying enemies in any video game franchise, relentlessly stalking players through the deserted halls of the RCPD station.

If you still don't know what all the fuss is about, we have reviews for both the initial PS4 and the enhanced PS5 versions of the game.
