RE5 Secures Resident Evil as Capcom’s Flagship Franchise

Another Castle

Apparently, despite how many times gamers have openly bashed Resident Evil 5 for it’s many flaws, the title is Capcom’s largest success to date dealing with the franchise, and the rest of Capcom’s impressive library.

It was announced that Resident Evil 5 has officially surpassed the record sales numbers of 1992’s allusive Street Fighter II, since the title dropped way back in 2009. RE5 has reportedly sold over 6.3 million units as late September 2013. The list also showed the better critically received RE6 has sold 5.3 million copies, and RE2 which holds tight at fourth place with nearly 5 million to date.

All together, every Resident Evil title has sold more than 60 million units, followed by Monster Hunter at 27 million combined. This should unsurprisingly nail-down the Resident Evil franchise as the champion brand for Capcom, having  helped define the company’s success since it’s debut in the 90’s.
