Resident Evil HD Remaster Sells Over One Million Copies
With almost three months since its release, Resident Evil HD Remaster has managed to acquire another monumental milestone. Capcom today announced that the overhauled digital title has now sold more than one million copies across all platforms.
It was a couple of months ago when we reported that Resident Evil HD Remaster had gone on to become the fastest selling digital game in Capcom’s history in both North America and Europe.
Sony on the other hand also announced that it was the “biggest selling day one digital title” in the PlayStation Network’s history. Not only that, the game also ended up as the top-selling PS3 and PS4 game of January, even though it was released late in the month.
While exact figures for each platform have yet to be revealed, the PlayStation angle makes for good reasoning that it was a major reason for the game to cross one million sales. The Resident Evil franchise as a whole has now passed 65 million copies sold across all platforms.
Resident Evil HD Remaster was released on January 20 for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. The highly profitable remake of the 2002 classic may have just reminded Capcom of what fans have been expecting from Resident Evil titles all these years.
