Resident Evil 7: biohazard has shipped four million copies worldwide, Capcom has announced.
The news comes following a brand new trailer for the upcoming Resident Evil 7 DLC Not a Hero and End of Zoe. Both DLCs will be released alongside the Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition on December 12, 2017.
Capcom had initially targeted four million shipments of the survival horror title by the fiscal year ended March 31, 2017. Instead, the game managed 3.5 million during that period. The title is now expected to move an additional two million by March 2018.
Right now, Resident Evil 7 stands as the sixth best-selling game in the franchise to date. Resident Evil 5 is currently top dog with 9.5 million, followed by Resident Evil 6 (eight million), Resident Evil 4 (5.9 million), Resident Evil/Resident Evil Director’s Cut (5.08 million), and Resident Evil 2 (4.96 million) (via NeoGAF).
The Japanese publisher had previously said it expects Resi 7 to ship 10 million units during its lifetime.
Resident Evil 7 DLC introduces classic character
Resident Evil 7’s upcoming Not a Hero DLC sees the return of Chris Redfield, who is now employed by Umbrella Corporation. Redfield’s latest mission sees him exploring the mines underneath the Baker mansion while hunting down the deranged Lucas Baker.
End of Zoe meanwhile chronicles the fate of the Baker’s daughter, and introduces a newcomer by the name of Joe. The DLC is part of the Season Pass or can be purchased separately for £11.99, while Not a Hero will remain free to all players.
Resident Evil 7 was released on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in January 2017. Capcom is also working on a full remake of 1998’s seminal PSOne classic, Resident Evil 2, though no details on the project have been revealed since it was greenlit in August 2015.
