Resident Evil 5 Hits Five Million
The latest title in the survival horror series sold 4.4 million units across Xbox 360 and PS3 during March and an additional 570,000 copies in April, according to Capcom’s chief financial officer, Kazuhiko Abe.
With Abe telling Reuters that the publisher is still enjoying “very strong demand” for the game, it is thought that Resident Evil 5 has since comfortably sold the 30,000 copies required to push it past the five million mark.
Capcom said recently that the Resident Evil series is its bestselling franchise of all time, having shifted over 40 million units down the years.
During the same Reuters event, Abe said that Capcom plans to launch ten iPhone titles during the current business year ending in March 2010.
