On the other hand, the long-awaited sequel for DMC series shipped 2.1 million copies and the number will surely increase in the following months as the data gets updated to cover Spring’s sales too. More accurately, Devil May Cry 5 has reached such a shipment in just 23 days.
Finally, its time to talk about Capcom’s best-selling title ever that has reached 12.4 shipping record, based on the latest data, and you bet the amount push the boundaries even further for Capcom, as Iceborne DLC will be available soon for Monster Hunter World.
