Capcom has announced that the total shipments and digital sales for Resident Evil Village have surpassed a whopping five million units worldwide.
Resident Evil Village is the sequel to Resident Evil 7 biohazard (which has gone on to ship over 10 million units cumulatively) and once more places players into the role of protagonist Ethan Winters as they venture into a mysterious, snowy village to rescue his daughter. In addition to providing a sense of scale that outdoes its predecessor, as well as storytelling that rises above the genre of horror games, this title was lauded for featuring a higher degree of action and even more expansive, highly engaging gameplay.
Utilizing the company’s proprietary RE Engine, which made a simultaneous release on both the new and current generation of consoles possible, the game captivated players with a spectacular play experience featuring stunning, photorealistic visuals and cutting-edge 3D audio.
Resident Evil Village originally launched for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC on 7 May 2021. Sales initially exceeded four million back in July 2021.
