The lights are on
Capcom is not expecting Resident Evil 6 to continue its initial good sales, and the company says it should make a fiscal dent.
Gamespot reports that Capcom said in a statement, "...Sales of the major new title Resident Evil 6 were initially strong but subsequently weakened. As a result, sales for this title are certain to fall short of the plan."
Overall, Capcom is expecting net sales for the year to fall short by approximately $1 billion.

Well that really sucks for them. I love Capcom and always wish them the best. I was hoping RE6 would do much better then it did.
The game was definitely hurt by the unfair review scores. Far from the best RE game, but it was a fun ride, better than average. That said, here's to hoping Capcom will bring the series back around to what the fans and critics seems to want, survival horror.
I recently restarted Director's Cut and realized how much I missed that feeling of finally getting whatever type of key and and venturing into the unknown.
Even though I enjoyed RE 6 better than 5 it was still not the major improvement they boasted.
I liked it but until they take away some action and add some survival horror back into it at about a 50/50 ratio the sales will keep declining with every new game until they have to cancel the series.
I also believe their exclusive DLC deals with Microsoft is hurting their sales with people that only own a PS3/PC.
well, thats sad.
