Devil May Cry 5 Become Franchise’s Best-Seller
How often do you have to say that Capcom is finally back, and with vengeance? Devil May Cry 5, released last year, now surpasses Devil May Cry 4’s cumulative sales to both the highest and bestselling franchise title. In reality, Capcom did well.
The newest deployment sells 3.1 million units worldwide to all distribution networks by 31 December 2019, according to the latest financial numbers available on the official website. This spot with 3 million units was previously held at Devil May Cry4, but this was done in almost a decade. On the other side, in less than a year Devil May 5 Cry has done the same.
It is worth noting that in 2015, Capcom released Devil May Cry 4 as a special issue. This will make the play equally successful at nearly 4.4 million units sold. The special edition has added new playable characters and is now available both for consoles and PCs. Roughly 1,4 million items sold were re-released.
Devil May Cry 5 now has nineteen platinum sellers in its Capcom list. The new Monster Hunter: World is leading the pack with a fantastic sales of 14.9 million units, with its Iceborn production at 3.2 million. Another success story of 5.8 million units sold is the reboot of Resident Evil 2. Street Fighter 5 currently has 4.1 million sold units while the old version is being updated.
Those who just saw Devil May Cry 5 will take account of some of the mods on PC. It replaces, for example, Rylo Ken’s robes and the Star Wars lightsaber: The Force Awakens. The mod was very relevant because players had compared the V look to the Hollywood actor ever since the beginning. Even the man behind Devil May Cry 5, Hideaki Itsuno, said that the similarities were odd when he saw the film at first.
