Capcom has released its predicted sales figures for its flagship titles scheduled for a 2012-13 release. By the end of the 2012-2013 fiscal year the publisher is predicting that Resident Evil 6 will sell a whopping 7 million worldwide.
If you’re thinking that figure might be a bit over optimistic, you’d be right. To put things in perspective, Resi Evil 5 has only sold 5.8 million copies since its release in 2009. Even crazier still, the forecasted figure of 7 million sales doesn’t even include the PC version of Resi 6 – yet to be scheduled for release.
The publisher has also predicted 2 million sales across the same period for Devil May Cry reboot, DmC. It might interest you to know that the highest selling Devil May Cry game is DMC4, which has sold 2.6 million copies since 2008.
Capcom’s crystal globe also suggested that Dragon’s Dogma will sell 1.5 million and Lost Planet 3 will hit the target of 1.4 million. Lost Planet 3 is due for a 2013 release and Capcom’s fiscal year ends on 31st March 2013.
