Resident Evil 7

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.
