Capcom Expects Resident Evil 6 to Sell Seven Million, DMC Around Two Million
Capcom has laid out official commercial projections of how it expects its products to sell over the next year. Most significantly, it expects to sell upwards of seven million copies of Resident Evil 6, and Devil May Cry settling somewhere north (or south) of two million copies.
Other titles like the recently announced Lost Planet 3 are expected to sell around 1.4 million copies, with the soon-to-release Dragon’s Dogma barely squeaking ahead in the predictions race at 1.5 million.
So that’s Capcom predicted future sales in a nutshell for you. Though, the only concern that comes to mind is that of the Resident Evil 6 sales. Thinking back, Resident Evil 5 sold around two million in its first six months in the US alone – will the same apply for RE6?
Also notably important to sales prediction is the overall reception of RE6 in comparison to RE5, because RE5 certainly wasn’t as…well, “positive” as it certainly could have been.
But it seems today, conversely, the next iteration of Capcom’s horror-survival-action shooter is very much being looked forward to.
What say you readers, do you anticipate impressive sales of Capcom’s upcoming wares?
