The shipments of Resident Evil Village have exceeded the barrier of 3 million copies worldwide since its release, and although the numbers are promising and indicate strong sales in the coming period, they were not enough to compete for the title of the fastest selling game in its first week in the markets in the history of the horror series, but it did not guarantee it Second or even third place.

Resident Evil Games have grossed £ 160 million across 35 releases since its first appearance on PlayStation in 1995, and although it has been touted as a survival horror game, the best sales were those that focused on action rather than anything else.

Resident Evil 5 and 6 games are the largest in terms of launch week sales in the history of the series in Britain, and both represent more than a third of the series’ total sales in its first week, at a rate of 36%, while the final part, Resident Evil Village, ranked sixth in that list.

Sales of the first week of Resident Evil 5 and 6 also account for 8% of the total sales of the series throughout its 35-issue cycle (excluding Village), and in terms of full sales, Resident Evil 5 also comes out on top, outperforming the first two parts, and the fourth installment it considers it. Many are the most successful and best in the title track.
