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.

Maybe Capcom should keep their expectations in check?
Resident Evil 5 was much worse than this one...
Yeah, excluding PS3 from the newest multiplayer modes didn't exactly help either.
lower the price then
I wonder how this will change the series? Since people disliked the action oriented parts of the game and Operation Raccoon City.
i didnt like re6 really was a poor story board really i like to see them make RE1 a remake that looks like RE6 but made like nintendo game cube ver with co op of 2-4 players in the old mansion kinda like lost in nightmares in RE5 gold would kick ass.Sadly alot games theses days have a poor story and will never be like the games in the 1990's.*** i could have written a better story board than this crap really......But remake of RE1 on ps3 or ps4 with co op will kick ass and give jill alot kool sexy outfits that u can buy in ps3 store lol.Butthis be just a dream if capcom made RE1 with co op wish batman arkham city had co op i might have played it more pity.
Put it on Wii U, I'll buy it
The Resident Evil franchise probably should have stopped at 4. 6 was just a major disappointment. I played it once with my sister and wasn't interested in it enough to play it again after that (the horrible co-op split screen helped...who honestly thought that set up was a good idea?). I just watched her play it instead and went back to my other games.
Can't say I am too surprised...
do they have an article for why RE6 is so bad because i would like to see it i know that that the new survivors dlc was crap though..
Damn. Resident Evil is Capcom's flagship game. It's no doubt that the 6th installment was below mediocre, but they knew this was coming. Didn't they?
