Resident Evil Dominates the List of Best-Selling Horror Games Ever in the US

by Hrishikesh Bhardwaj


Mat Piscatella, a well-known analyst at the SuperData Research group, conducted an interesting survey in the world of horror video games, drawing up a list of the most successful names found in this genre from 1995 to the present.

The research, which in any case is limited only to the US market, revealed without too many surprises that it was Resident Evil the franchise most appreciated by players during all these years. The ranking, in fact, is led by Resident Evil 5 in first position and Resident Evil 4 in second, while the excellent Dying Light (which will soon receive a sequel ) goes on to win the lowest step of the podium. There are also excellent results regarding Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Dead Space 2 and The Evil Within (digital sales are not counted). You can take a look at the complete ranking through the twitter we showed you at the bottom of the news.

In a subsequent post, Piscatella pointed out that Resident Evil 2 would rank in the first place if we add up the sales of both the original, published in 1998, and the recent remake arrived this year. The reworking of the horror adventure of Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield – continues the analyst – is continuing to sell very well, and is approaching in a surprisingly rapid way the sales of the entire lifecycle of the original Resident Evil 2.

Resident Evil 3 remake ‘to release in 2020’


VGC writes:

by Andy Robinson, Nov. 21, 2019

Capcom will release a remake of Resident Evil 3 in 2020, a new report has claimed.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reports that Resident Evil 3 remake is in active development at Capcom, which matches what VGC has been told by a number of sources.

Resident Evil 2 remake released in January 2019 – 21 years after the PlayStation original – and has been a very successful title for Capcom, with sales approaching 5 million units.

It’s likely that the Resident Evil 3 remake would be able to reuse at least some assets from that title, as well as mechanics and engine work, making a release at some point in 2020 possible.

The original PlayStation version of Resident Evil 3 released the year after its predecessor. The 21st anniversary of that title will be celebrated in September 2020.

Resident Evil 2 producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi has previously indicated Capcom would consider further Resident Evil remakes if fans “voice their enthusiasm” for them.

Resident Evil 2 (2019) has sold almost 5 million copies

The release of Resident Evil 3’s remake could coincide with asymmetric online multiplayer game Project Resistance, which went into closed beta in October.

The multiplayer spin-off’s announcement in September forced Capcom producer Matt Walker to address fan concern about the future of the franchise as a traditional single-player game.

“It’s totally valid that people want more of that quality core experience offered in RE2 and RE7,” he said.

“My take – we as a company need to continue to branch out and try to offer up new gameplay in addition to refining the experiences people expect from us. If we just continue to offer up the same thing over and over again, people will gradually lose interest with what we’re making.”
