It looks like Capcom has yet another milestone to add to their list of accomplishments. This time it’s in the world of VR, in particular with Meta’s Quest and Quest 2 headset line. The device is one of the most popular VR sets on the market, and they have a special exclusive app to go along with it, Resident Evil 4 VR. Jason Rubin, the Vice President of the gaming division at Meta, revealed on Twitter that Resident Evil 4 VR is now the fastest-selling app in the history of the Quest lineup. He also announced that the app will receive a major piece of content, Mercenaries, which is slated to release sometime next year. This was also announced via a blog post on the company’s site.

The title launched just last month for the platform on October 21, less than a few weeks ago. In that time it has apparently done some serious numbers, so much so that it has eclipsed every other Quest VR app in terms of fastest-selling statistics. Rubin did not actually disclose these numbers, but it is worth noting that this is based on the overall initial revenue for the title’s first week on the store. It also helps that it’s Resident Evil 4, one of the most iconic titles in the history of video games. Anyone who owns a Quest headset more than likely had some extent of interest to at least check it out, and looking at the reviews so far, it’s easy to see that it’s a major success.
As for the upcoming Mercenaries DLC, there wasn’t any concrete information besides the aforementioned release time frame. For those who don’t know, Mercenaries is the multiplayer mode that had players competing with each other by obtaining the highest score and kill as many infected as possible. It’s been a long-time favorite for the fan base, and its inclusion for Quest users should prove to be an entertaining time.
