Devil May Cry 5 director Hideaki Itsuno revealed that the Capcom action game has sold 2 million copies. The announcement came at the start of his talk about the title at the Game Developers Conference today in San Francisco.

Devil May Cry 5 came out on March 8 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It has passed this milestone in just under two weeks.

Devil May Cry 4 came out in 2008. By 2014, it had sold 3 million copies. Devil May Cry 5 is on track to outpace its predecessor.
