Capcom Posts Sales Figures for DMC5, Resident Evil 2, Monster Hunter: World

Capcom has revealed updated sales figures for three of its titles — Devil May Cry 5, Resident Evil 2 and Monster Hunter: World — that were released in the past two years.

The publisher and developer’s Monster Hunter: World, which was released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2018, has shipped 12.4 million units worldwide.

When it comes to the remake of the 1998 cult classic horror title, Resident Evil 2 launched on PS4, Xbox One and PC back in January and has sold over four million copies, with it sitting on 4.2 million at the time of this writing.

Finally, the long-awaited Devil May Cry 5 debuted on PS4, Xbox One and PC in March and has sold 2.1 million units worldwide.

“In the home video game market, sales of more than one million units is the generally accepted standard for a major hit,” the publisher wrote on its website.

“Since Capcom’s inception, we have created many of these titles, including Street Fighter and Resident Evil.

“With more than 100 titles that have sold more than one million units, Capcom stands alone in the video game industry.”

Monster Hunter: World sits at the top of Capcom’s list with its impressive sales figures, while Resident Evil 2 ranks tenth and is level on copies sold alongside ninth-placed Monster Hunter 4.

Hardcore Gamer’s review for Devil May Cry 5 said that Capcom has “crafted a well-designed and finely-tuned structure that encourages exploration and experimentation.”

In our review for Resident Evil 2, we awarded the survival horror title a near-perfect score and we found that the developer “not only recreated Resident Evil 2, but [also] entirely redesigned it to be a bigger and more robust horror experience.”

For Monster Hunter: World, we lauded Capcom in our review for creating an experience that “wastes no efforts in making itself a sprawling experience with enough content to keep people going even without the planned free DLC quests.”
