Resident Evil 7: Biohazard has now sold 4.8 million units worldwide, Capcom said during its Q3 financial results. The figure includes sales of the base version of the acclaimed scare-’em-up and its Gold Edition re-release.

The Japanese software powerhouse announced back in November that Resi 7 had moved 4.1 million copies worldwide, so that’s another 700,000 sold during the last quarter. In that time, Capcom has also launched the free Not a Hero DLC and the paid-for End of Zoe expansion.

Resi 7 launched in January 2017 for PS4, PC, and Xbox One, although despite being praised for taking the series back to its roots hasn’t quite set tills alight as much as Capcom had hoped. Despite this, the company still expects the game to move as much as 10 million copies during its lifetime. 

In other news, Capcom is currently working on a remake of 1998’s seminal Resident Evil 2, although right now it may as well be a pipe dream for all the info we’ve got on the game since its announcement nearly three years ago (i.e. bugger all).
