Resident Evil 7 has shipped 500,000 copies since launch, bringing total worldwide shipments to more than three million units, Capcom announced today. As a result, the Resident Evil franchise is now at 76 million units sold lifetime.

“By incorporating broadly scoped innovations and refocusing on horror, the title earned numerous high-scoring reviews from around the globe and garnered attention from fans who also highly praised the game, leading it to exceed three million units shipped,” Capcom said.

They’ll “continue to expand interest and demand” for Resident Evil 7 by releasing DLC. The next piece of add-on content is Banned Footage Vol. 2, which arrives on February 14 for $14.99 USD.

Capcom didn’t say how many copies of Resident Evil 7 have been sold-through to consumers, but the stats tracking website says there’s 1.3 million total players and 121,000 VR users. As a reminder, stats are only taken from players who have enabled the in-game data transmission option.

It was also revealed by Capcom that the latest movie, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, “has had a strong performance worldwide,” and the series is now over one billion dollars worldwide. With this milestone, “the Resident Evil film series boasts the all-time top box office gross of any film series based on a video game to date.”

Do you think Resident Evil 7 will hit Capcom’s four million target by the end of March?
