    Capcom expects Resident Evil 7 to ship 4 million copies during the company's current fiscal year, but what about beyond that? The English translation of Capcom's latest earnings Q&A was posted today, where the company said it expects the game to sell well for a long time to come.

    Resident Evil 7 will be a "foundation" title, Capcom said, meaning it should be able to sell at a solid level due in part to the rise in digital distribution and other things.


    "We are expecting 4 million unit sales worldwide in this fiscal year. Also, we expect to recognize sales of the game as a catalog title in the next fiscal year; however, revenue for catalog titles tends to grow in relation with the timing of movie releases and new titles in a series," Capcom said.

    "What is more, the sales lifecycles for titles has grown due to digital distribution, so we expect this game to become a foundation title, producing revenue not limited to the next two fiscal years but into the long term as well."

    Resident Evil 7 launches on January 24, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. That's just three days before Resident Evil: The Final Chapter comes to theaters on January 27, 2017.

    Also in the Q&A, Capcom was asked what plans Capcom has in place for more Resident Evil movies. The company said the films have "reached a break" with The Final Chapter, but also teased that you should expect more movies down the road.

    "However, as with the feature-length Resident Evil CG films, we will continue a multifaceted expansion in this area beyond the live-action format," the company explained.

    The next Resident Evil CG movie is Resident Evil: Vendetta, which comes also comes out in 2017. The first trailer was released in September--watch it here.

    In other news about Capcom, the company said it is currently looking into bringing its PS4/Xbox One multiplatform games to the Nintendo Switch.
