Since its launch, Resident Evil 7 did not feel that popular. Capcom knew that the game was not going to hit the targeted number of sold copies, so it let it grind by itself. After whole 7 months since launch, Resident Evil 7 has finally sold 4 Million Copies, the very targeted and minimal required number by Capcom.
This was also reported on Resident Evil 7’s official website and it looks like Capcom’s website proudly holds a stamp of their achievement. It was one the games with the worst performing sales in Capcom’s history that somehow has managed to recover. Resident Evil 7 has achieved a lot worse results than previous Resident Evil’s titles.
Despite its total disappointment, the game still holds the same price of 49.99 eur. It’s not a smart move to keep a game at the same price when the game by itself is quite unpopular. A fan based opinion would be a lower price, especially after the achievement Capcom has made by selling 4 Million copies. It now seems that according to Capcom, that number is a competent number to make some changes.
While it did not satisfy their expectations of around 10 million copies, it is time for a lower price. As the press states, RE8 will still hold to the first-person perspective of the game. Furthermore, the Gold Edition of RE7 will come on December 12. Hopefully, the new DLC will improve the game and also bring potential new buyers.
