The lights are on
Capcom has already warned that sales for Resident Evil 6 were lower than expected during the release window, and now the company has revealed the new targets for both Resident Evil 6 as well as Devil May Cry.
Capcom has announced that Resident Evil 6 is expected to ship five million worldwide before the end of the fiscal year on March 31 – down from the forecast of seven million.
Similarly, the company is pulling back on its outlook for Devil May Cry down to 1.2 million from two million.

It's too bad. I admit, I would live a return to classic R.E. I think the new DMC however, was a much needed makeover as I found 4 a dissapointment. I really like capcom. Not only do they have interesting ip. But they always show an oppeness to new ideas for that ip. A willingness to take risks that other companies wouldn't dare. Some bumps are to be expected, but how anyone could be happy over poor sales numbers for a company that puts out games that people usually enjoy? I'm rooting for you big C!!!!!! Push the marketing budgets!!!! Get those sales numbers up to the numbers your games should earn!!!
gonna buy DMC soon!
What did you expect? RE6 was terrible and fans are still pissed over how Dante looks in the reboot. If Mass Effect 3 taught us anything, it's that you should never piss off the fans.
RE6 was the game no one really needed. It was nothing like previous games
RE6 just makes me sad, I was looking forward to it soooo much I'm a huge RE series fan, I hate to admit it but RE6 is damn near unplayable, there are soo many game breakers, the controls are terrible, I think the decent graphics are redeeming. They took away the awesome inventory system, the *** up the health, they added jake, a 20 year old mercenary, REALLY??? 20 years old?? He's a *** child. I wasn't scared one single times my entire play through, I didn;t even try to play Adas campaign because it was so horrendous. Just *** sad man. Then I play 5 minuets and not only am I horrified I am also having the time of my life because its a fun gme. I have since moved on to the dead space series and they are way better than re 6 and possibly re 5.
