Capcom has revealed they are “looking at” bringing Resident Evil Village to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 platforms, though that’s not the existing priority as of this right time.
The latest tease from the ongoing company came through the Tokyo Game Show showcase, that is going on now. When Resident Evil Village was announced first, it had been targeted as a next-gen experience for the Xbox Series X/S and the PlayStation 5, forcing console players to upgrade their setups before engaging.
Now it appears like another gen restriction might not stay in place, as the dev team is “looking at” bringing it to Xbox One and PS4, although livestream segment did clarify that Capcom isn’t prepared to make any promises regarding an ongoing gen delivery at the moment.
“We’re looking at it,” added producer Tsuyoshi Kanda through the livestream. “But we can not make any promises. However, we will do our best in developing a top-tier survival horror experience on current generation consoles.”
With Resident Evil Village occurring following the events of 7 with the return of Ethan Winters and a “much darker” narrative than prior entries, it might be nice to start to see the title become more accessible via generations. Still, it’s good that Capcom isn’t promising anything it can’t guarantee it’ll deliver, and fans it’s still in a position to enjoy what’s next on next gen platforms and on PC.
We don’t possess a release date for Resident Evil Village at the moment, only that it’s developing in 2021 sometime.
