Capcom’s survival horror game, Resident Evil Village, has reached a new milestone, the first one of this caliber for the franchise history. The game has managed to reach 100,000 concurrent players, according to metrics provided by SteamDB, reaching an all-time peak of exactly 106,631 on May 8th.
While we have info on the concurrent users, we are still missing data on the number of copies sold. Resident Evil Village is hands down one of the best Resident Evil games developed ever. As technology continues to evolve, we’re bound to seeing an even better one in the future.
The game has received high scores on review sites such as OpenCritic and Metacritic, with over 85 on both. It seems that Ethan Winter’s healing capabilities have taken players by surprise, with everyone hoping to see what kind of journey he will follow in the coming Resident Evil era.
Previous Resident Evil Titles such as RE 7 Biohazard haven’t managed to get up to this point, and the game had roughly around 20,000 concurrent players. This is one of the biggest successes Capcom has ever noticed in the past couple of years, knowing that the provided data comes from Steam only. The number of players on consoles is likely high, but it’s hard to estimate without certainty.
