Looks like listening to the fans is starting to pay off for Capcom as sales numbers show that the Resident Evil 2 remake has been a hit.
As reported by Gamasutra, the Resident Evil 2 remake has shipped over 3 million copies in four days. These numbers are only taking physical copies sold for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The data does not take digital and PC sales into account.
At the moment; it’s expected to surpass the sale of the original game, which sold 4.96 million copies (making it the fourth best selling title in the series).
The highly anticipated remake of Resident Evil 2 was released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on January 25th. The game follow Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield as they attempt to escape Raccoon City during outbreak of the T-Virus. Check out my review of the remake just to get an idea of what to expect.
The original Resident Evil 2 was the second game in the horror series and has been hailed as the one of the greatest horror games of all time. The game was first released in 1998 for the PlayStation then ported over to the PC, Nintendo 64, and Sega Dreamcast.
