Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Sells in Excess of 2 Million Copies

Despite a poor critical reception, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City has sold around 2 million copies, according to Capcom.

As detailed in the publisher’s annual financial report, the Slant Six shooter sold 1.7 million units in the period from release to the end of the financial year, 31st March. Add in subsequent sales - 269,000 in its first week in Japan, plus a further five weeks at US and European retail from April until now, and the game will have comfortably eclipsed the 2 million mark.

Capcom’s financial report also provided figures for a number of its other titles, including Street Fighter X Tekken. The crossover fighter has sold 1.4 million copies since its launch in March. Decent numbers.

However, not even the surprising performance of Raccoon City could save Capcom’s year from disappointment. The publisher’s net sales were down 16 per cent year-on-year to ¥82 billion, while operating income fell 13.8 per cent to ¥12.3 billion.

We’re sure Resident Evil 6 will turn those frowns upside down.
