Devil May Cry 5 has already sold 2 million copies

Less than two weeks ago we reported that Devil May Cry 5 was Capcom's second-biggest launch on Steam ever (opens in new tab), behind last year's Monster Hunter: World. Today, at a talk at the Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco, director Hideaki Itsuno announced that Devil May Cry 5 has already sold more than two million copies. That sure sounds like a smashing success for a game launched on March 8.

Capcom is definitely on the upswing: Resident Evil 2 Remake has performed significantly better than its first-person predecessor Resident Evil 7. It's all enough for Sam to suggest that the publisher has entered a new golden age.

When he's not obsessively optimizing and re-optimizing a tangle of conveyor belts in Satisfactory (it's really becoming a problem), he's probably playing a 20-year-old Final Fantasy or some opaque ASCII roguelike. With a focus on writing and editing features, he seeks out personal stories and in-depth histories from the corners of PC gaming and its niche communities. 50% pizza by volume (deep dish, to be specific).
