Resident Evil 7 Players Have Collectively Played for Over 600 Years

Meanwhile, the franchise as a whole has now reached a cumulative sales figure of 75m units since the first game was released in 1996, cementing its place as one of Capcom's most established franchises.

From the minute that Resident Evil 7 was first announced during Sony's E3 2016 press conference, the game was marketed as an immersive first-person experience that's true potential lay in virtual reality. The most interesting of these informative statistics is the number of gamers that have been playing Resident Evil 7 in VR, which as of this writing clocks in at 82,962, which accounts for 9.54% of players across all three platforms.

Resident Evil 7 might only be a few days old, but it's already being considered a high point for the series.

Capcom expect Resident Evil 7 to top 4 million sales by the end of the financial year (by the end of March).
