The Resident Evil 2 Remake Has Officially Shipped Over Four Million Copies

Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 remake has set the standard for what a remake should be, and the number of units shipped is almost as impressive as the title itself.

Revealing the huge number in a press announcement, Capcom celebrated reaching over four million shipped units of the game since its release a month ago.

Putting that into perspective – the last main-canon Resident Evil title, RE7, didn’t hit 3.5 million shipped units until three months after launch.

The news isn’t too surprising, as the RE2 remake absolutely floored players both new to the series and seasoned veterans. Revisiting the classic 1998 survival horror but adding in new gameplay elements and making the most of the RE Engine, made this game an instant classic.

Thanks to the success of Resident Evil 2, people are clamouring for a remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. Let’s face it, with such a bonafide cash-cow on its hands, Capcom would be mad to gloss over a Nemesis remake.
