on December 5, 2016 11:27 AM

As you may know, Capcom announced Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite during PlayStation Experience 2016, revealing the game is coming late 2017 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Today, Capcom that the Marvel vs. Capcom series has sold over 7 million units to date, perhaps suggesting why the publisher/developer decided to bring it back despite reported licensing issues. It’s not clear whether or not these numbers include the 1996 X-Men vs. Street Fighter, but if it does that mean the series has sold 7 million units across seven games, which is not a bad haul for a fighting game series.

Further figures for each installment were not divulged.
