Capcom has updated its Platinum Titles list to include sales of Devil May Cry 5, Resident Evil 2 Remake, and older titles.

The Platinum Titles list consists of games which have sold one million or more copies. As of the company’s year-end on March 31, 2019, over 100 have reached platinum status.

Its most recent release, Devil May Cry 5, has sold 2.1 million units since March 8. The sales milestone was hit before the company’s year-end report. Basically, it sold 2.1 million in just under one month.

Resident Evil 2 Remake has sold 4.2 million units since January, a figure that’s up slightly over shipped information provided in February.

Of all the games in the RE series, the best-seller is Resident Evil 5 with 7.5 million units sold. It is followed by Resident Evil 6 with 7.3 million and Resident Evil 7 with 6.4 million. All three are positioned on the best-seller list as noted, but the number one title is Monster Hunter World (thanks, Gematsu).

Monsters take the crown

Monster Hunter World is now the best-selling game in Capcom’s history with over 12.4 million units worldwide. That’s up 2 million from the figure reported in August 2018.

It joins three titles in the series, Monster Hunter Freedom 3, Monster Hunter X (Cross), and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate in the top ten.

The first expansion for Monster Hunter World, Iceborne, arrives on consoles September 6 and PC sometime during the “winter” months.
