Capcom is predicting a huge return investment for Resident Evil 6

5/13/12 1:00pm

Capcom released its latest earnings report earlier this week and within this report is a very bold prediction concerning Resident Evil 6.

The company revealed to its shareholders (and the general public via the Internet) that it's expected to sell roughly 7 million copies of the game world-wide, which would make it not only the highest selling Resident Evil game but the highest selling Capcom game of all time!

Capcom is also predicting that it will sell  2 million copies of DmC, 1.5 million copies of its upcoming RPG Dragons Dogma and 1.4 million copies of Lost Planet 3

But getting back to Resident Evil 6 for a moment, could this bold prediction become a reality? Considering the hype and excitement surrounding the game and the fact that it'll likely do better than Resident Evil 5 (the number 2 highest selling Capcom game ever at 5.8 million units sold), it very well could. 

What do you think g1s? Do you think Resident Evil 6 can accomplish this record-breaking feat? 

Oh and if you're curious, Street Fighter II currently holds the record of being Capcom's highest seller with 6.8 million copies sold.
