The remake of 1997's Resident Evil 2 has shipped more than ten million copies since its release.
The milestone was announced on Twitter by Japanese publishing giant Capcom's Dev 1 team, which said that the game had shifted this many copies between its January 25th, 2019 release and July 14th of this year.
"We did it!" Dev 1 wrote on Twitter.
In a post to investors, Capcom wrote that sales had been bolstered by its continued promotion of the brand with 2020's Resident Evil 3 and Village last year.
"[Resident Evil 2] garnered critical acclaim from international media, lauded for providing a fresh horror experience, deeply immersive world and dramatic story all made possible by the latest in cutting-edge technology. Following its launch, Capcom released a steady stream of high-quality titles from the series, including Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil Village, and executed a flexible pricing strategy that leveraged digital sales. Moreover, the company promoted the overall brand with regular content releases—such as the live-action Resident Evil series that began streaming today, July 14, on Netflix—propelling cumulative sales of Resident Evil 2 to surpass 10 million units worldwide.
"Capcom remains firmly committed to satisfying the expectations of all stakeholders by leveraging its industry-leading game development capabilities."
