During a live streamed E3 event, the publisher said: “By popular demand, development has just started on additional DLC for Resident Evil Village. More info later.”
Capcom also confirmed that Resident Evil’s new multiplayer spin-off, RE:Verse, will go live in July. Re:Verse will be available free for owners of Resident Evil Village, Capcom has said, and presumably available for purchase separately.
The latest entry in the Resident Evil series has “shipped over 4 million units worldwide”, including both physical and digital versions, according to the company.
This means Village is selling faster than the previous three major Resident Evil game releases.
Its predecessor, Resident Evil 7, sold 3.5 million copies in nine weeks, though Capcom notes that it has shipped nine million units to date.
Capcom has said it hopes Village will surpass Resident Evil 7’s sales to become the best-selling individual title in the series.
