Global shipments of Resident Evil 6 have surpassed 4.5 million units, Capcom has announced.

The figure breaks the publisher's previous records to become Capcom's highest-ever shipped title at launch.

"Capcom has for many years used its multi-platform strategy of developing titles across many game platforms to make its brands even more popular," said the publisher.

"In addition, Capcom uses the Single content multiple usage strategy to maximize the value of its content. By continuing to use these approaches, Capcom is determined to provide a diverse spectrum of game players worldwide with games that meet their highest expectations."

Resident Evil 6 launched globally on Tuesday to divided critical response.

Martin called the game's "lofty ambitions" its greatest "downfall", saying that Resi 6's "disparate elements proves more than ever that this series needs to find itself".

Shows that a name or brand will carry you so far in most genres - not just a Call of Duty thing.

Jeez. How many of them will be unhappy, I wonder?

Just goes to show how much a good advertising campaign can do, if only others titles that will likely get buried, such as Hitman, had that sort of campaign.
