Resident Evil Village has passed the 5 million copies distributed around the world, based on the latest financial results of Capcom which also show numbers record regarding sales and profits in the history of the Osaka publisher.
For the quarter of fiscal year 2021 ended September 30, Capcom reports that the sales were up 66.4% from the previous year, with a 61.9% increase in operating revenues, to nearly 70 million yen and 29 million yen respectively and are record numbers for the publisher in question, in particularly with regard to the second quarter.
The excellent results were driven above all by sales of Resident Evil Village according to reports from Capcom, which has now exceeded 5 million copies, thus continuing to grow compared to the previous quarter which was that of the launch.
Obviously there has been a marked slowdown, given that it has gone from 4.5 million recorded on June 30 to the current 5 million and a little more.
We are still a long way from sales of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, which totaled 10 million copies, but the series has proven to be able to continue to be significant in the market for a long time, so there is time to evaluate its performance.
Meanwhile, continued sales of Monster Hunter Rise also contributed to Capcom’s strong overall results, with total sales of 19.8 million copies during the quarter in question across all games released by the label.
