According to Alex Aniel, writer of Itchy Tasty: An Unofficial History of Resident Evil, Resident Evil 4 Remake is the second fastest-selling Resident Evil of all time. He said he expects sales to overtake Resident Evil 6, which he didn’t reach 5 million units until about 12 months after its launch.
This means Resident Evil 4 Remake is, for the most part, the second fastest-selling RE in history in its first two weeks.
However, it is very likely that RE:4 will overtake RE6. RE6 shipped 4.5 million units at launch, but it wasn’t until about 12 months later that he hit 5 million. https://t.co/0uGQi8VpKP
