Naturally Capcom seems to think so too because speaking to MCV UK, Capcom’s EMEA marketing director Antoine Molant has revealed that the company is hoping that they will be able to sell as many as 4 million copies of the game on launch day itself, which will be a pretty remarkable feat if they can pull it off.
Molant said, “Ideally, we’d love to sell 4m on Day One globally. That would be great. Looking at what we see in the pre-orders and trends these days, we’re pretty confident we are going to get there. All the signs that we have seen across the market, whether it’s from the UK or from other territories, are very positive so far. We’re not sitting back and relaxing at all because we want to push that. The confidence is there.”
Resident Evil 7 is set for a release for the 24th of January, 2017 and will be available across multiple platforms, even virtual reality.
