Capcom, the developer and publisher of several popular titles like Street Fighter, Monster Hunter, and Resident Evil, recently updated its list of “Platinum Titles” — titles that have sold over one million copies. These numbers are recent as of June 30, 2022.
While Capcom publishes regular updates to its Platinum Titles, several of the updates included in the recent filing include huge milestones for popular titles, such as Monster Hunter Rise and Resident Evil Village.
Here is a list of the biggest updates:
• Monster Hunter Rise (Switch/PC) sold 10.3 million units, with an additional 1.3 million units since March 31.
• Devil May Cry 5 (PS4, Xbox One, PC) sold 5.7 million units, with an additional 700,000 since March 31.
• Resident Evil Village (PS5, Xbox Series, PS4, Xbox One, PC) sold over 6.4 million units, with an additional 300,000 since March 31.
• Monster Hunter World: Iceborne (PS4, Xbox One, PC) has sold over 9.5 million units, adding 300,000 since March 31.
• Resident Evil 3 (Remake) (PS4, Xbox One, PC) sold over 5.4 million units, adding only 200,000 since March 31.
• Resident Evil 2 (Remake) (PS4, Xbox One, PC) sold over 9.8 million units, adding only 200,000 since March 31.
• Resident Evil 7 biohazard (PS4, Xbox One, PC) broke the 11 million unit threshold, adding 200,000 sales since March 31.
• Devil May Cry HD Collection (PS4, Xbox One, PC) finally entered the Platinum Title list, selling over 1.1 million copies.
While it shows that Resident Evil 2 (Remake) reached 9.8 million units, in the month since June 30, it was confirmed that the title pushed over the 10 million copies sold hurdle.
While these numbers are fantastic for Capcom’s game division, not everything is sunshine and roses. Resident Evil fans are not happy about the recent Netflix series that launched a few weeks ago, as it only tangentially relates to the existing franchise. Capcom is also set to reveal new information about its upcoming fighter, Street Fighter 6, at this weekend’s fighting game world championship Evo.
