It has been revealed that Resident Evil 4 VR is the fastest-selling app in Oculus Quest history. Congratulations Capcom and Meta!
At this point, it’s difficult to keep track of just how many platforms Resident Evil 4 has released on. Since it was first released for the GameCube in 2005, RE4 has been released on multiple PlayStation, Nintendo, and Xbox generations. Not to mention the mobile ports.
It’s seemingly an ongoing competition as to which game can get the most ports, between Resident Evil 4 and Skyrim. Though I have a feeling that Skyrim may have a slight edge in that race. However, no matter how many ports we get of either game, they are always a success. Which is why they keep releasing.
Recently, Skyrim celebrated its 10th anniversary and saw the Anniversary Edition release on PC and new-gen consoles. However, just before Skyrim Anniversary Editions arrived, Resident Evil 4 VR was released for the Oculus Quest 2.
RE4 vs. Skyrim!
Judging by the reaction to its release, it should come as no surprise that RE4 VR would have a successful launch. When the release finally arrived, I heard nothing but good things about the game built from the ground up for VR.
Now we have confirmation that Resident Evil 4 VR is the success we assumed that it would be. The VP of Games at Metaverse, Jason Rubin revealed that RE4 VR is the fastest-selling app in the history of the Oculus Quest.
“We knew Resident Evil 4 would bring a different kind of thrill in VR, both for diehard fans of the franchise and those new to the game and VR,” said Rubin in a tweet. “I’m excited to share that RE4 is officially the fastest-selling app in the history of Quest.”

Furthermore in a follow-up tweet, Rubin also confirmed the rumours that The Mercenaries mode will arrive as DLC in 2022 for Resident Evil 4 VR.
