Resident Evil 2 has been hugely successful, that isn’t much of surprise, and according to the publisher, it has now sold over a million digital copies. This includes keys sold on Steam and other online retailers.
By comparison, the previous game in the series – Resident Evil 7, has not yet broken a million owners on Steam in its lifetime, meaning that the remake of Resident Evil 2 has completely outperformed it.
Even more impressive when remembering the fact that the remake has only being out for two months, and Resident Evil 7 being available for over two years.
In comparison, Resident Evil 7, Revelations, Revelations 2, Resident Evil 4, and the remake of Resident Evil 1 sold between 500,000 and 1 million copies. Resident Evil 0 has not seen sales past 500,000, and multiplayer title Operation Raccoon City sold between 100,000 and 200,000 copies on Steam.
