Capcom has shipped 2.5 million copies of Resident Evil 7 so far. The revitalization of the survival horror classic seems to be just what the franchise needed to become potent again in the eyes of consumers. Capcom also reports that the Resident Evil 7 demo has been downloaded 7 million times over the platforms for which it's available.
Capcom gives part of the credit for Resident Evil 7's success to the new RE ENGINE, developed specifically for Resident Evil 7. Capcom says the RE ENGINE pushes current hardware specs to their limits, allowing for the great gameplay and visual fidelity RE7 offers.
