Capcom today announced that the Resident Evil 2 Remake has shipped 4 million units globally on all platforms in the span of just a month. In addition, cumulative sales of all the games in the Resident Evil series now totals 90 million units since the first title debuted in 1996.

In the 2019 remake of the 1998 classic, Capcom used its cutting-edge R&D facilities to build the game completely from the ground up for current-generation game platforms. In addition to visual effects, including detailed, photo-realistic graphics made possible with RE ENGINE, Capcom’s proprietary development engine, the title provides players with a fresh horror experience via audio featuring Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 and real-time sound image rendering that utilizes binaural technology.

Looks like all that effort paid off, as Resident Evil 2 garnered critical acclaim around the globe from both the media and game players alike, propelling sales to 4 million units worldwide. You can read our review here, where Armu has praised the game like it’s the coming of zombie Jesus.
