Capcom 'analyzing' Resident Evil 6's disappointing sales

With five million copies shipped so far, Resident Evil 6 is by no means a failure for Capcom. However, it has repeatedly been called a disappointment by the publisher, who expected the game to ship upwards of seven million units. What could account for such a sharp decline from its initially projected sales?

"We are currently analyzing the causes, which involve our internal development operations and sales operations. We have not yet reached a clear conclusion," Capcom told investors.

'Too many' Resident Evil games in recent years, says producer

Like zombies in a shopping mall, Resident Evil has been crowding the market in the last couple of years. Resident Evil 6 marked the fourth release in only two years, after ORC, Revelations, and Mercenaries 3D.

Resident Evil 6's second title update continues to tweak the game

Resident Evil 6 is the game Capcom keeps on trying to fix, in light of lower than expected sales. The last title update tweaked the game's camera--one of the biggest flaws of the original game.

32-bit costumes coming to Resident Evil 6

This may be the single best thing about Resident Evil 6. You'll be able to unlock new costumes for Resident Evil 6, inspired by the classic PS1-era games. Ada, Chris, Leon, and more can don blocky polygonal wares as they run around the campaign. And in a rather non-Capcom move, these alternate outfits can be unlocked for free.
