Devil May Cry 5 Sells Two Million Units in Two Weeks

Devil May Cry 5 Sells Two Million Units in Two Weeks

Capping off a tremendous year and a bit for Capcom.

Devil May Cry 5 might have only been out for two weeks, but it's just raced past two million units sold worldwide. The new information was revealed by Capcom Dev 1 director Hideaki Itsuno yesterday on March 21, at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

Unfortunately there's no recording of the panel which director Itsuno and producer Matt Walker conducted at GDC 2019 yesterday. For sales comparison though, Devil May Cry 4 came out in 2008, and it took six years to sell three million copies in 2014. Devil May Cry 5 looks set to eclipse this record in under a month.


Devil May Cry 5 caps off what's been a truly fantastic last year for Capcom. With the global success of Monster Hunter: World, Resident Evil 2, and now Devil May Cry 5, Capcom's absolutely on a tear. To see what we made of the latest entry in the DMC series, check out our Devil May Cry 5 review.

The news of Devil May Cry 5 selling two million units comes towards the end of GDC, which USG has been at all week long. We were at the reveal event of the Google Stadia earlier in the week, at which we saw a live demo of Doom Eternal on the Stadia.
