Capcom have announced that their survival horror title has shipped over three million units globally since its official launch four days ago. This means that Village is the joint-best selling game in the series since 2012.

One of the biggest releases this year, Capcom's survival horror Resident Evil Village, is off to a great start in terms of reviews but also sale numbers. Yesterday, we reported that the game has topped UK physical sales chart and today , Capcom have announced that over three million units have been shipped worldwide since the game launched four days ago.

When compared to other instalments in the series, Resident Evil Village is certainly one of the more popular releases. The game is tracking ahead of the last release, Resident Evil 3, which sold two million in five days, and Resident Evil 7, which reached 2.5 million sold copies in four days.

The game is a joint-best release along with Resident Evil 2 Remake since 2012's Resident Evil 6, which had a much stronger debut than Village, selling 4.5 million copies in just two days. 

Additionally, Resident Evil Village has seen impressive concurrent player numbers on Steam, peaking at 101,726. This is also a new record for the series on Valve's platform.
