You can call a remake a success when it not only sells well in the market, but also makes gamers who incidentally often come with criticism, feel they don't mind to enjoy more of a similar process.
Moreover, if the remake process is distributed alternately with new game series in the same franchise, with so far, the quality is indeed charming. This is what Capcom managed to do with Resident Evil, especially Resident Evil 2 Remake. Something that also translates from the sales side.
Despite the release of a newer series and confirmation for the upcoming Resident Evil 4 Remake in 2023, the charm of Resident Evil 2 Remake seems unstoppable.
This RE Engine-based re-creation that is not only visually captivating, but also has strong and gripping roots in survival horror, has succeeded in touching a new milestone.
That's right, Resident Evil 2 Remake finally sold 10 million copies across platforms! This announcement was made by Capcom via their Twitter account, with a creative cut.
