The lights are on
Capcom predicts sales of Resident Evil 6 will top 7 million units in its upcoming fiscal year and become the best-selling game in the company's history.
The projections were revealed during Capcom's latest earnings release, where the company also expects to sell 2 million units of Devil May Cry, 1.5 million of Dragon's Dogma, and 1.4 million of Lost Planet 3.
Capcom's current best-selling game is the Super Nintendo version of Street Fighter II with 6.3 million units sold. Resident Evil 5 is second sold 5.8 million units. Christian Svensson of Capcom U.S.A said Resident Evil 6 is already off to the best start in the franchise's history.
Probably consumer interest and the amount of hype that is surrounded by the project at the moment. If this game goes back to a similar style and fresh gameplay that 4 brought I would have no doubt it will sell like hot cakes.
I really hope this too be true, but really can't see it selling that high. I do have high hopes for this game and want Capcom to do well in its upcoming fiscal year. I want this to succeed!

Okay...Resident Evil is really darn fun and all. But, seriously, topping 7 million? That's pushing it a bit, in my opinion.
