Nearly 18 years after Resident Evil 4 was released, Capcom remade the game for modern hardware. Resident Evil 4 Remake delivered incredible visuals and expanded upon the excellent gameplay of the original horror title.
The game was a massive hit among the critics, selling over 3 million copies in the first two days. Following the latest sales update from Capcom, it has been announced that Resident Evil 4 Remake has crossed the 5 million sales mark.
Why it matters: Remakes are a popular trend in the gaming industry. The game’s success will pave the way for more remakes, with a recent survey from Capcom also hinting at future remakes.
In April, Capcom announced the game had crossed 4 million sales. This means it has sold an additional million copies in a few months. As such, Resident Evil 4 Remake is still going strong.
The last few months have seen extremely popular releases. This includes games like Diablo 4, Final Fantasy 16, and more. While these titles have sold several million units, Capcom’s latest remake has continued its sales momentum.
As stated earlier, a recent survey from Capcom has hinted at future remakes. Additionally, the gaming giant is open to remakes for non-numbered entries. This means that Resident Evil: Code Veronica could be remade in the future.
A reliable leaker also claims Capcom will finally reveal Resident Evil 9 in 2024. The game is expected to be released in 2025, leading to plenty of excitement for the next few years of the survival horror IP.
