Resident Evil 5 Becomes Capcom's Most Successful Game Of All Time

Posted on Thursday, October 31 @ 06:44:25 PST by Alex_Osborn


Capcom has confirmed thatResident Evil 5is now the company's best-selling game, outpacing the legendaryStreet Fighter II.

Since it first launched back in 2009, the fifth installment in Capcom's iconic horror franchise has gone on to sell a whopping 6.5 million units. Until that point, the aforementionedStreet Fighter IIheld the number one spot with 6.3 million in sales. Believe it or not,last year's polarizingResident Evil 6trails closely behind with 5.2 million units sold.

As such, it should come as no surprise thatResident Evilis the publisher's most successful franchise overall with staggering 60 million in sales across the entire series. Placing second is the Monster Hunterfranchise, with 27 million units sold within the confines of the IP. Not too shabby.

From a financial standpoint, Capcom has done quite well over the past six months, with a 16.9 percent bump to 53 billion yen for the period ending September 2013.
