Sales for Resident Evil 2 Remake have, as of July 14, 2022, reached over 10 million units worldwide. This number includes digital and physical copies over the various platforms the game is on. The game debuted on January 25, 2019, which means that it achieved this milestone in a little over three years. This also means that, with 10 million sales, Resident Evil 2 Remake has sold more copies than the original game.

The tweet announcing the sales for Resident Evil 2 Remake looks like the results screen after finishing the campaign. It also includes thanks to the Resident Evil fans who supported the game and series the entire way. At the bottom of the screen, where a letter grade for how well the player performed during their run appears, Capcom has graded this achievement an “SSS.”
Resident Evil 2 originally came out in 1998, following then-rookie cop Leon Kennedy and the first game’s protagonist’s sister Clair Redfield in Raccoon City after a viral outbreak transformed the city’s human and animal population. The remake boasts improved graphics and controls and is a relatively faithful retelling of the original game. It was well-received, earning honors such as being nominated for Game of the Year in 2019.
Resident Evil 2 Remake is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
