The video game company Capcom revealed that 3 million copies were shipped in just 4 days across its various platforms. This led to reaching a total of over 100 million for the entire series.

Even though the actual figure of the total sold is yet not clear, the demand is certainly high. With $60 per copy, it is estimated Resident Evil Village has already made a whopping $180 million. Whereas Resident Evil 7,  launched in 2017, has shipped 8.5 million units as of December 2020.

The game brought entry of the character of Lady Dimitrescu which promoted the game to a great extent. Even Domino’s Pizza started using her to market their pizzas. The nature of the tall, flirty vampire lady attracted many for which the game too got viral and gained its market.

Most likely dropping the number from the title and naming it Resident Evil Village instead of Resident Evil 8 also helped out. Newcomers will not have to play to catch up on seven other games which are mostly insignificant to the current title.

Rumors suggest this game is the middle chapter of a trilogy and Resident Evil 9 has been in development for some time now. However, Capcom has not yet made any official announcements regarding a sequel.
