Europe, North America, and Japan
Across the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One platforms, Capcom has shipped 1.1 million units of Resident Evil Revelations 2 worldwide. Capcom apparently arrived at this number by calculating full Season Pass sales alongside of retail sales (shipped units). So even with the “shipped” caveat attached, it likely did very well digitally.
Although some people didn’t dig Revelations 2, in my mind, Capcom has been doing right by the franchise, coupled with the great sales of Resident Evil HD. Let’s just hope they don’t screw it up with the next follow-up.
There is one troubling phrase though that was used in Capcom’s financial report. They call the episodic method in which Revelations 2 was provided, “ingenious.” The fact that they seem so proud of this doesn’t sit well with me, almost like an omen of what’s to come. I wasn’t really opposed to the format with Revelations because it actually worked out well in the end, but I can foresee a board room meeting where top brass are saying “serialize everything!”
