Resident Evil 4 Remake debuted strongly, at least in the United Kingdom: according to sales data Shared by Gamesindustry.biz, the new installment of Capcom’s horror saga has become the eighth best launch of the entire franchise. As if that were not enough, the figures show that the remake has sold 29% more than the original game at its launch, and that is only counting the physical units of PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PS4 (although on PC it has also been released with audience success on Steam).
These figures are even more impressive when we see that the remake of resident evil 4 has been the only one remake of the saga that has outsold the original game at its release.
