Resident Evil 6 breaks Capcom shipping records
Resident Evil 6 has shipped more copies than any other game in Capcom’s history, the publisher has revealed.
Siliconera reports 4.5 million copies of Resident Evil 6 have been shipped worldwide, a new record for Capcom in terms of initial shipments.
In this instance, the figure refers to the number of units sent to meet retailer demands, not sold through; Capcom is predicting 7 million sales by the end of the first quarter of 2013.
For comparison purposes, Siliconera notes that Resident Evil 5 shipped just over 4 million at launch, and went on to sell 5.8 million copies.
