Last year's Resident Evil 4 remake now has the honour of being the series' fastest-selling game in history as Capcom confirms it's sold 6.48 million copies as of 31st December 2023. It pretty comfortably beat the previous record set by Resident Evil 2 (the PS5, PS4 remake), which sold 5.8 million units in the same timeframe.
The last reported sales update for Resident Evil 4 put the horror game at 5.4 million units come the end of September 2023, meaning another one million copies have been sold in the three months since then.
In the same span of time Resident Evil 4 has been on the market, the previous record holders included Resident Evil Village at 5.7 million and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard managed 4.8 million. It's clear to see the horror franchise has been on an upward trajectory over the past decade.
Released in March 2023 for PS5 and PS4, we awarded a rare 10/10 rating in our Resident Evil 4 PS5 review, and it took third place in our overall Game of the Year 2023 top 10 list. Did you love the remake too? Let us know in the comments below.
