Resident Evil 7 continues to sell 1 million copies per year. Of course, every company seeks to have a successful title and even more so if it becomes a hit since its launch. However, another of the objectives that both developers and publishers have is longevity in the market and to maintain an enviable sales rate over the years. Well, this is the case of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, a game that continues to give good results for Capcom 4 years after its debut.
A few weeks after the release of Resident Evil Village and as part of the celebrations for the 25th anniversary of the franchise, the occasion lends itself as a retrospective to see the balance of different moments and in terms of the recent era of Resident Evil, there is very good news. This according to statements by Antoine Molant, marketing director of Capcom in the EMEAA region and UK, who revealed in an interview with Gamesindustry.biz that Resident Evil 7: Biohazard continues to count its success with 1 million copies sold per year.
In this regard, the executive said: “We know that quality sells and continues to sell for many, many years. We continue to see Resident Evil 7 sell over 1 million units worldwide per year, 4 years after its release. As we plan much longer-term in different markets, we can consider factors such as platform sales promotions, Black Friday, etc., which become increasingly important after the first 12 months.”
The success of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is not to be taken lightly, because today and with 8.5 million copies sold in total, it is already the best-selling game in the history of the franchise, demonstrating that Capcom’s bet for a new era of Resident Evil has been right and is currently living a great moment, as it has made the passes with the past, thanks to Resident Evil 2 Remake and is shaping up for the future with immersive experiences and terrified in the first person.
