Capcom is feeling pretty optimistic about their upcoming Resident Evil game. And by optimistic I mean they say it’s going to be their biggest game ever. Currently they’re putting their projections at 7 million units across Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

The game has been a big project for the Japanese publisher, and will include popular characters from the whole series. The projected 7 million may not be a pipe dream, considering Resident Evil 5 managed to score a global 5.8 million units sold. In order to be Capcom’s best game ever, Resident Evil 6 will have to surpass the current champ, Street Fighter II, which sold 6.3 million copies.

It’s not just Resident Evil Capcom has consulted their crystal ball on, predicting Devil May Cry to launch this year with around 2 million sold, as well as a number of 1.5 million on Dragon’s Dogma and 1.4 million on Lost Planet 3.

They have not yet confirmed if the world is going to end in 2012, but that would be in conflict with the Lost Planet 3 prediction.
