The glorious Resident Evil 2 remake has basically blown everyone away (including us), but how does it stack up to the rest of the series in sales numbers?
Well, it was predicted that the game was going to set a new record for the franchise, with its One Shot Demo being downloaded by 11 thousand Steam users [via GitHyp].
According to reports, the Resident Evil 2 remake shipped over 3 million copies in its first week, making it one of the best-selling titles of 2019.
I guess we’ll have to see how it measures up against the hot-off-the-press Kingdom Hearts 3…
There’s no better metric for the type of video game consumer I am than the fact that I’m going to be switching between Resident Evil 2 and Kingdom Hearts for the next month.

So 1.3 million people downloaded the Resident Evil 2 demo so far. This makes me most happy
