How big is the Resident Evil franchise these days? Is it 7-million-units big? Capcom seems to think so, as the company has released their sales forecasts for the year with Resident Evil 6 leading the charge.
We’ve listed down the game and Capcom’s expected sales for each game globally across all its platforms.
Resident Evil 6 = 7 million
DmC = 2 million
Dragon’s Dogma = 1.5 million
Lost Planet 3 = 1.4 million.
Yep, there’s no surprise here that RE6 is Capcom’s biggest money-maker and they’re banking on it, too. For reference, Resident Evil 5 has sold 5.8 million units so far across all platforms worldwide. However, that 5.8 million number includes RE5′s PC version. For RE6, the 7 million target does NOT include the PC version — which, doesn’t even have a release date yet.
Do you think Capcom’s numbers are feasible or are they expecting too much?
