Resident Evil 6 has set a new shipping record for Capcom which was originally held by Resident Evil 5 when it released back in 2009.
The game has shipped 4.5 million copies worldwide so far, beating the previous record of 4.4 million, it’s not by much, but it still counts. The publisher believes that the game can sell 7 million copies by March 2013 which would make it the publisher’s bestselling game ever, beating the 6.3 million copies sold of Street Fighter II on the SNES.
The game launched worldwide this week to very polarized reviews from critics, it appears to be a love it or hate it kind of game. You can check out our thoughts in our Resident Evil 6 review here.
