Capcom couldn’t promise anything but the development team is doing its best for current-gen console ports.
As insider DuskGolem revealed recently, Capcom is looking to release Resident Evil Village for Xbox One and PS4. The news was confirmed during the publisher’s Tokyo Game Show 2020 Online showcase. There is a caveat though as it couldn’t promise that current-gen ports would actually be possible.
Resident Evil Village has had quite the storied development, at least if rumors are to be believed. It was reported that the game was playable from start to finish a year ago, at which point it was being developed as Resident Evil Revelations 3. However, after being received very well internally, it was allegedly reworked as the next mainline game in the series, which meant the team needed extra development time. Apparently, there have been troubles running the game on PS5, though PC and Xbox Series X have had better success.
Whatever the case may be, Resident Evil Village is currently slated to release for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC in 2021. The story sees Ethan running afoul of Chris Redfield, who’s seemingly turned bad, and exploring a strange village. This village features new werewolf-life enemies and other mysteries. Stay tuned for more details as they arrive.
