Story Highlights

  • The Resident Evil 4 remake has made waves across the industry for all it brought to the table.
  • A recent report by Capcom confirms that the shooter has rolled over 6 million units to date.
  • This makes Resident Evil 4 the fastest-selling game in the Resident Evil series’ history. 

The Resident Evil 4 remake is one of the finest reimaginings of a past classic video game that you’ll ever get to play these days, so the success it’s been raking in as of late is certainly on point. Thanks to a new report by the folks over at Capcom, the third-person shooter has crossed more than 6 million copies sold over the course of its release, becoming the fastest-selling title in the franchise by large and far. 

Resident Evil 4, launched in March 2023, contributed to sales growth, reaching 6.48 million units cumulatively, supported by ongoing promotional measures including free title updates for PlayStation VR2. Additionally, the company conducted proactive promotional campaigns to gain wide recognition for its intellectual property and acquire new fans, focusing primarily on series title sales, such as Resident Evil 2. As a result, catalog title sales reached 26.7 million units, exceeding 22 million units in the same period of the previous fiscal year and boosting sales,” says Capcom.  

The success of the title is certainly warranted here, all things considered. This newly released Resident Evil 4 pretty much pulls off the impossible, and that is perfecting a classic that was already too good in most ways. Remakes sport risky territory, especially when they’re of prized titles, such as the original 2005-launched Resident Evil 4, which made landfall for the Nintendo GameCube first and foremost.

As the news found itself circulating online, people jumped to express their opinion on the affair as well, with most holding the survival thriller in high regard and praising it for its high quality. One Triggerhappytel on ResetEra notes, “Fully deserved. Capcom is currently the best developer when it comes to remakes and they deserve every sale.”

Last I checked, Resident Evil 4 clocked 5 million sales in July last year, about four months into its release. Players are glad to observe that this figure has risen since then, paving the way for more enthusiasts to hop on board and see what’s all the clamor about. Just so you know, Capcom also outed much-awaited DLC for the Resident Evil 4 remake as well in the name of Separate Ways following the game’s launch. 

Speaking of which, the title came out on March 24, 2023, for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. eXputer rated it a perfect 5/5 in its review, with my colleague Abdul Haddi calling it a “flawless recreation of an already phenomenal game.” If you’ve drifted through the game but are yet to find any secrets, here are 10 easter eggs in the remake that you wish you knew of earlier.
