Capcom has revealed that Resident Evil 5 is the best-selling game in the publisher’s history.
Resident Evil 5 was released in 2009 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and has since sold 6.5 million units. These latest sales figures push it ahead of Street Fighter II which launched in 1992 for the Super NES and went on to sell 6.3 million units.
A statement on Capcom’s investor relations data reads:
“In the home video game market, sales of more than one million units is the generally accepted standard for a major hit. Since Capcom’s inception, we have created many of these titles, including Street Fighter and Resident Evil. With more than 60 titles that have sold more than one million units, Capcom stands alone in the video game industry. This page lists these hit titles by sales volume and presents packages, moving and still images, and other information about these games.”
