Devil May Cry 5 sales pass 2 million in 2 weeks

Devil May Cry 5 has so far sold more than 2 million units worldwide.

Though Capcom has yet to officially make an announcement, Devil May Cry 5 director Hideaki Itsuno revealed the milestone during a GDC panel. Iron Galaxy designer Isaac Torres was in attendance, and shared a picture of the slide.

At launch, Devil May Cry 5 beat Resident Evil 2 Remake in concurrent player numbers on Steam, indicating a stronger start on PC.

The figure may not appear massive compared to the biggest games today - or even Capcom's own Monster Hunter World - but it's already outpacing all other Devil May Cry games. By comparison, Devil May Cry 4, the best-selling entry so far, currently sits at a respectable 3 million in lifetime sales.

This effectively means Devil May Cry 5 is the fastest-selling entry in the franchise, which is great news for Capcom. Devil May Cry 5 will be supported with free updates, the first of which adds the Bloody Balance in April.
