Resident Evil 7 Nears 450,000 VR Users As Sales Pass 5 Million

Capcom’s Resident Evil 7: Biohazard remains one of the scariest, most thrilling VR experiences to date, and the number of people that have played it inside Sony’s PlayStation VR (PSVR) is on the rise.

This month, Capcom announced that sales of the survival horror sequel had surpassed 5.1 million copies. That will account for both the base game, which released in January 2017, and the Gold Edition, which launched towards the end of last year and included all of the DLC released for the game thus far.

With that milestone revealed, we thought we’d check in on, the stat-tracking site that players can opt into that gives us a rough idea of how many people have played the game in VR. The service now says that, as of the time of writing, 436,875 people have jumped inside PSVR to experience the terror. Note that the site also says 3,259,257 people have played the game, so there’s likely around 2 million people that didn’t opt into the stat-tracking, suggesting the real number of VR users is even higher.

Going by the site alone, though, an impressive 13.4% of players have used the game with PSVR. That’s not bad when you consider VR support is only available on one of the three platforms the game launched on.

Sadly, there’s still no word on if Oculus Rift and HTC Vive support is coming to the PC VR version of the game. Capcom recently patched the title to include support for the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, but it didn’t include any mention of VR support for PC users. We can but continue to hope and wait.
