Capcom is “looking into” bringing ‘Resident Evil Village’ to current-gen

Brief new gameplay videos have also been shown

Resident Evil Village is expected to release next year on next-gen systems and PC, however, Capcom have said they are “looking into” releasing a current-gen version.

During a panel from the company at the Tokyo Game Show, the game’s producer, Tsuyoshi Kanda, spoke about development on the game and the possibility of a PS4 and Xbox One release.

“While Resident Evil Village is being developed specifically for next-generation consoles and PC, we’re looking into delivering the experience on Xbox One and PS4 as well,” Kanda said. “We’re looking into it, but we can’t make any promises. However, we will do our best in creating a top-tier survival horror experience on current generation consoles.”
