Well, here’s a little surprise: The New Resident Evil 4 Remake—coming out next year—is in development for PS4. We knew it was coming to next-gen machines, but now it’s making its way to Sony’s older home console as well. However, it seems that this remake will skip the Xbox One, possibly due to lack of performance or sales.
In June of this year – during a Sony State of Play – the Resident Evil 4 Remake has been revealed, which after years of rumors and speculation confirms that it is indeed a real thing that will soon exist. The game is not a remaster of the classic horror title, but a complete remake in 2019 style Resident Evil 2 and 2020s Resident Evil 3. Like those games, it is developed from the ground up in Capcom’s RE Engine, the same engine that powers newer games such as B. drives Resident Evil Village and RE 7. At the time of its unveiling, it seemed like this new remake would only be for next-gen. Well, that is no longer the case!
Announced today during Capcom’s TGS 2022 Online Showcase, Resident Evil 4The remake of is now coming to PS4. No trailer or footage of this version has been shown, but it does confirm that this next entry in the series is now a cross-gen game. However, Xbox One owners are hoping to play RE4 reissue have bad luck. Nowhere in today’s showcase did Capcom mention an Xbox One port of the remake. In fact, when Capcom showed the game’s title graphic, it only showed logos for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
kotaku contacted Capcom about the lack of an Xbox One port, but received no response.
Although we don’t officially know the reasons for Capcoms RE4 Remake skips the last-gen Xbox, the likely reasons are A) the base Xbox One is underpowered for what Capcom developers are doing with this remake, and B) the Xbox One has never sold as well as the PS4. Even if the developers got the game to work on that console, it might not be worth it in the end. And while the Xbox One X is certainly a powerful console, Microsoft has never allowed developers to only create games for this machine. An Xbox One game needs to work in all flavors, including the old VCR-like original, the S, and the X.
So first of all, if you want to play this again Resident Evil 4 Remake coming out on March 24, 2023, you’ll need a next-gen machine, a decently powerful PC, or an old PS4 or PS4 Pro.
