Resident Evil 7 and Dead Rising 4 did not meet Capcom’s sales expectations

Resident Evil 7 is considered one of the best RE games to date. And while it has recouped its development cost, it did not meet Capcom’s sales expectations. The same applies to Dead Rising 4; a game that sold really poorly and was unable to even pass the one million milestone.

As Capcom noted, Resident Evil 7 gave an overall solid performance (though it was unable to meet its sales expectations). Furthermore, re-releases of the Resident Evil series performed steadily thanks to a stable fanbase for the brand. On the other hand, however, Dead Rising 4 underperformed.

Capcom expected to sell 4 million copies of Resident Evil 7 and 2 million copies of Dead Rising 4. So far, Resident Evil 7 has sold 3.5 million copies, whereas Dead Rising 4 has not sold more than one million copies.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
