Resident Evil 2 Remake is a Bestseller in the RE Series, Surpassing RE5

Resident Evil 2 Remake, a survival horror game developed and published by Capcom in 2019, has become the top-selling game in its series, selling nearly 14 million copies worldwide since its launch five years ago.

The game has surpassed the sales of Resident Evil 5, another classic Capcom title, showcasing the success and popularity of this remake, and how well Capcom executed the game. Now, let’s take a closer look at this story.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Got a New Record in Sales

The Resident Evil 2 Remake has sold nearly 14 million copies worldwide. This news came from Capcom Dev 1’s Official Twitter account. Capcom shared the achievement during a recent party for the game, marking their first celebration of the game itself.

“We’re thrilled by the great responses from players! It means a lot to our team,” Capcom wrote in a message translated from their post. It shows how much players like the game and how well Capcom remade it.

Since it first came out in 2019, the game’s sales have been going up. In July 2022, it had sold 10 million copies. This year, it reached 13.9 million copies. This makes it the best-selling game ever in the Resident Evil series, which began in 1996.

What’s impressive is that these sales aren’t combined with the original game’s sales. The remake has also sold more than another popular Resident Evil game: Resident Evil 5 from 2009. That game was the top seller until now, but its sales were from the original version and newer versions released on different devices. So now, the RE2 remake is number one.

Well, Resident Evil is now second only to Monster Hunter in Capcom’s best-selling games. The RE series keeps growing and changing, promising cool stuff coming, making the future look bright for the series.
